Craig Steven Phillips

Leading the Tao Tribe very loosely, I have been practicing and teaching Taoist and Buddhist meditation, as well as leading classes on the Tao Te Ching, Qigong and Tai Chi, for the past 36 years. I also do private one-on-one spiritual counseling sessions.


In 1988 I came across, what would become, the most important book I have ever read - the Tao Te Ching, or as I often refer to it: everything you will ever need to know about living your life in the effortless flow of the Present Moment. That simple little book, along with other Taoist and Buddhist writings and practices, have given me a solid, yet fluid framework for living my life with sanity, peace and open-hearted compassion.


   Besides being an interfaith Minister, I also had the good fortune to be ordained into Buddhism by the Dalai Lama in 1997, which continues to be one of the greatest blessings I have ever received.

   In 2013 I released my first book, The Buddha's Dog and have followed that up with my current release, Living in the Flow: Reminders for a Supremely Happy Life. To find out more about these titles, or to order a copy, go to the Living in the Flow page.

   The purpose of my life has come down to serving the Tao by serving others in their healing and awakening, and finding their own authentic path back home to the present moment, where happiness and peace await as surely as the breath we are taking right now.
