Abstract: Traditional Taoism has a strong impact on the mental health of Chinese people. It stresses the transcendence from self and secularity, the dynamic revertism of nature, integration with nature, and the pursuit of the Infinite. Under the influence of Taoism, Chinese may prefer dynamic revertism instead of empowerment; integration with the law of nature instead of environmental change; inaction instead of cognitive and behavioral change; self-transcendence instead of self-actualization; natural science instead of emotional ventilation. The complexity and diversity of the influence of Taoism on various types of Chinese communities are also discussed.
