Description

In his travels around the country and the world, Zen master and international best-selling author Thich Nhat Hanh witnessed a growing unhappiness among the many people he encountered. He saw the hectic pace of our day-to-day lives taking a toll on our health and well-being. In response, the renowned teacher sat down to write Peace Is Every Breath, a book that makes the core teachings of Buddha accessible for everyone.

In this jewel of a book, Thich Nhat Hanh does not suggest that we escape from reality and put our busy lives on hold. Far from it. Instead, he provides the insight and tools we need to incorporate the practice of mindfulness into our every waking moment. Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how we can transcend the mad rush of our days and discover within the here and now our own innate ability to experience inner peace and happiness.

Offering personal anecdotes, meditations, and advice for mindfully connecting with our present experience, Thich Nhat Hanh guides us around potential pitfalls along the way. We do not need to escape reality to harness the joy and peace that is possible with every breath we take. The power of mindfulness can heal us from the suffering caused by the many stresses that surround us. Peace Is Every Breath is a timely book filled with timeless wisdom and practical advice that is destined to become a classic.

    Mindfulness all day long
  • (4/5)
    This was a nice short book with a focus on making sure that we enjoy every moment. Each short chapter at its basic level asks the reader to stop worrying about the past or future, and take full enjoyment in everything we do. I think I needed to read this book at this time in my life, and while not easy, I will surely make efforts to incorporate its message into my life.

  • (4/5)
    This audiobook is full of useful info, easy to listen to and easy to understand. The narrator speaks clearly and at a slow enough rate to allow for note taking without losing fluency. There aren’t a lot of examples and anecdotes but it’s still an interesting read. I definitely would recommend having the physical book or taking notes to anyone who actually wants to put the information to use.

    This is a powerful book which set me straight on what meditation is. essentially, the author says, meditation only means being aware of what is going on in our bodies, our feelings, and our minds. What he talks about is so simple like admiring nature that I'm very keen on following the simple steps. I borrowed this book from the library but since it is a keeper I'm buying it.
