How can we release expectations to fully experience a journey? Taoist master Casey Kochmer explains how “openness” is the key.

In December 2009, I had the pleasure of visiting the Big Island of Hawaii. I had come to learn about Taoism, and how to apply the concept of “flow,” the concept of releasing overt control for a more subtle variety.

As editor of BNT, I was also curious how the philosophy of Taoism can be applied to the journey itself. And so one afternoon near the end of my week trip, I sat down with Casey under the shade of the palm trees, and shot this interview. Enjoy!
