Taoism’s Butterfly Dream Story – The Transformation from Ego to Tao

In this podcast, we will explain one of Taoism’s most famous stories, Zhuangzi’s butterfly dream. In the Zhuangzi text, chapter two is finished with a very odd and peculiar story of Zhuang Zhou (Zhuangzi) dreaming he is a butterfly and the butterfly dreaming it was Zhuang Zhou. Many theories and speculation have been made about the meaning of this story. We will explain the three main meanings and the hidden Taoist interpretation of Zhuangzi’s butterfly dream.
