Peace Is Every Breath
A Practice for Our Busy LiveseBook
"Thich Nhat Hanh has been writing and talking about mindfulness for nearly fifty years. In the bestselling classic, Peace Is Every Step, the Zen Master introduced us to the peace that is available to us in each moment. This past year Thay, as his students call him, sat down to pen this book because he believes that the busyness of our lives has gotten out of control and led to unnecessary unhappiness. In Peace Is Every Breath, he does not argue that we put our lives on hold or stop living our fast-paced lives. Far from from it in fact, in this jewel of a book Thay illuminates how mindfulness can help us thrive and transcend the mad rush of our days and discover that within the here and now, the rituals of our days, we have the ability to experience true happiness. Thay guides us through the day offering personal anecdotes, meditations and advice for mindfully connecting with our present experience. We do not need to escape reality to harness the joy and peace we can experience with every breath we take. In Peace Is Every Step Thich Nhat Hanh introduced the world to idea that through mindfulness we can find peace. With Peace Is Every Breath, he takes this concept further and makes it even more applicable to our busy, modern lives. Thich Nhat Hanh believes that now more than ever we need to use the power of mindfulness to heal ourselves from 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"-- Provided by publisher.
