Taoist psychology sheds a new light on understand the structures and processes of the mind (cognition).

In addition to briefly emphasize the differences between Taoist philosophy (which is the foundation of the psychology) and Taoist religion and Buddhism, my discussion will focuses on the Taoist approach to the understanding and treatment of mental conflicts (e.g., depression and anxiety).

My discussion includes comparing Western cognitive model with the Taoist model in four areas:
a) different philosophical traditions
b) the nature of the mind
c) explaining mental conflict
d) how to create mental peace

I  have several relevant posts online, which can provide the background information for my meetup presentation.
