William Martin

Taoist Teacher, Guide, and Author


My path has been a winding one, through roles as an engineer, a minister, a psychotherapist, a college instructor in the humanities, a Zen teacher, a retreat and seminar leader, and author. It has led me to explore beliefs and ways of living, including Zen Buddhism, Christianity, and Taoism. I have lived in cities and towns and in the countryside. I have run marathons, hiked in the desert, in mountains and forests, and have found great beauty in the practice of Tai Chi and Qigong. For more than 40 years, I have translated, written about, and pondered the Tao Te Ching. Today, I live with my wife, Nancy, in the foothills of the beautiful and sacred Mount Shasta, from where I teach, offer counseling to groups and individuals, and write.
