Within contemporary society, the pace of our footsteps is getting faster and faster; we strive to become the best, trapping us in the never-ending cycle of pursuing so-called ‘success’. A s a result, more and more of us become emotionally and psychologically unstable. Therefore, the intention of this club is to provide a 'harbour' for everyone who wants to dock their current sailing boat/ship and join us on the shore to rediscover the possibilities our life has on offer - we don't have to be determined by the sea (external factors). Through this process, we hope to become more composed, genuine, and at ease when encountering the uncertainties of life as we become more existentially intelligent. The books that we will be touching upon are Confucian classics such as: 'Da Xue' and 'Zhong Yong' (Both of them are non-religious book and have more than 2500 years history. And the thoughts and ideas are also very suitable for modern daily life.) Want to learn more about UniTao? Email Ye Ding or connect with the club via Facebook
