Ren: The Ancient Chinese Art of Finding Peace and Fulfilment

A beautiful look at the Ancient Chinese philosophy of Ren and how it can help us with our hectic modern lives.

The Chinese character for Rén 仁 combines the word for ‘person’ 亻and the number ‘two’ 二, representing human connection. And in the teachings of ancient philosopher Confucius, Rén is the study of our relationship with those around us.

In this accessible and beautiful book, Yen Ooi explains the various facets of Rén and explores how this philosophy applies to everything from our relationship with ourselves and the people in our lives, to how we relate to society and the wider world.
