Spiritual Wisdom for The Modern World with Greg Ripley

Can I Just Say? with Nikki La Croce

May 21 2024 • 1 hr 1 min

During this conversation, Greg Ripley and I delve into how spirituality, especially Taoism, can inform and enrich our lives, guiding us toward a more harmonious relationship with ourselves and the world around us.

A central tenet of Greg’s philosophy draws from Taoism's teachings on acceptance and living in the present. He emphasizes the power of recognizing and allowing life to unfold in its own time, resisting the urge to fight against reality. This approach not only reduces personal suffering but also opens up a path to clearer vision and meaningful action. His insights touch on the practical applications of these principles, offering listeners tangible ways to integrate them into daily life.

Greg's latest book, "100 Remedies of the Tao: Spiritual Wisdom for Interesting Times”, seeks to distill these ancient teachings into accessible, practical wisdom for modern seekers. Through this work, Greg aims to bridge the gap between spiritual tradition and the demands of our fast-paced, often disconnected world.
