Taoist Monk Yunrou

Slow Down,
Balance Yourself.

See Things More Clearly,
Feel the World Around You More Deeply.

Harmonize Your World,
Start Now.


People are wired for story, and through it share feelings and ideas. Monk Yunrou’s unique, award-winning literary voice offers action, romance, and information in both ancient and modern settings. In his books, magical realism meets science, and compelling characters and plot-lines convey lofty ideas so sweetly and subtly readers may not even realize how much they’re learning.
