Diane Dreher

Diane Dreher, Ph.D., is the author of The Tao of Personal Leadership and The Tao of Womanhood along with The Tao of Inner Peace. Ms. Dreher is an English professor with bachelor's and master's degrees in English and comparative literature, and a doctoral degree in Renaissance literature. She is also a licensed holistic health practitioner and spiritual counselor and is a certified massage therapist. She conducts workshops on meditation and inner peace in the San Francisco Bay area.  

The Tao of Inner Peace

Translated more often than any other book except the Bible, the Tao Te Ching has been a spiritual guide for centuries, helping millions find peace within themselves, with each other, and with the natural world around them.  Diane Dreher's The Tao of Inner Peace (review or buy) translates the ancient Eastern philosophy into a plan for contemporary Western living. The book shows the way to bring greater joy, fulfillment, and creativity to daily life; build self-acceptance and self-esteem; and resolve conflict.

The Tao of Personal Leadership

In The Tao of Personal Leadership (review or buy), Diane Dreher explains how we can all become leaders -- courageous and resourceful individuals who challenge and inspire people to fulfill their highest potential. Each of the principles in the book -- including vision, timing, respect, building community, conflict resolution and harmony -- is reinforced by questions, personal exercises and examples of innovative leadership taken from real life.
