Today on “Dawn of an Era of Well-Being: The Podcast” we have a special episode featuring our co-host Frederick Tsao sharing some of his extensive knowledge of the ancient Chinese spiritual tradition of Daoism. The body of today’s episode was recorded on May 14, 2022 for the New Paradigm of Sentience and Consciousness Global Symposium which was presented by Laszlo Institute of New Paradigm Research.

With more than 40 years’ experience as an entrepreneur, Fred has worked successfully with business partners and governments in multiple markets across diverse cultures.
A visionary entrepreneur, Fred believes east-west integration is imminent, as the well-being and happiness economy arises.

Fred has initiated research that has led to the publication of over 30 Chinese books. He has co-authored two English books, including the Dawn of the Era of Well-being with our co-host Ervin Laszlo. In his latest work, One Choice, One World, published in June 2023, he paints a picture of the new world order of narrative economics that serves well-being of life.
Fred also takes a deep interest in the Chinese spiritual tradition of Daoism, of which he has an extensive knowledge, and which profoundly informs him in his daily life and work.
Daoism is an ancient spiritual practice native to China but its origins date back to prehistoric times. It stresses our finding and living in alignment with the DAO which is roughly translated into English as the “Way” or the “Road”. It shares characteristics of both a philosophy and a religion.
