about this book

One of the world’s great meditation teachers offers thirty-four guided exercises that will bring both beginning and experienced practitioners into closer touch with their bodies, their inner selves, their families, and the world. Compassionate and wise, Thich Nhat Hanh’s healing words help us acknowledge and dissolve anger and separation by illuminating the way toward the miracle of mindfulness.

“Thich Nhat Hanh is a great teacher. More than anyone I know, he has made mindfulness practice accessible to the modern world.” -Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones

“Any one of these meditations, if practiced with sincerity and wholeheartedness, can make the richness of the present moment apparent and bring you closer to yourself.” -Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are

“Here the deepest, subtlest teachings of the Dharma are made as immediate as the miracle of our own breathing.” -Joanna Macy, author of World as Lover, World as Self
