In this raw and moving memoir, Claude Thomas describes his service in Vietnam, his subsequent emotional collapse, and his remarkable journey toward healing. At Hell's Gate is not only a gripping coming-of-age story but a spiritual travelogue from the horrors of combat to the discovery of inner peace-a journey that inspired Thomas to become a Zen monk and peace activist who travels to war-scarred regions around the world. "Everyone has their Vietnam," Thomas writes. "Everyone has their own experience of violence, calamity, or trauma." With simplicity and power, this book offers timeless teachings on how we can all find healing, and it presents practical guidance on how mindfulness and compassion can transform our lives. This expanded edition features: Discussion questions for reading groups A new afterword by the author reflecting on how the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are affecting soldiers-and offering advice on how to help returning soldiers to cope with their combat experiences
Krieg beenden, Frieden leben : ein Soldat überwindet Hass und Gewalt by Claude Thomas( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in German and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vom Vater zu einer Militärausbildung getrieben, landet der junge ahnungslose Thomas in einem Camp, wo ihn Desillusionierung und Einsamkeit erwarten. Viel zu jung meldet er sich zum Einsatz als Soldat in Vietnam, wo er kämpft, mordet und schliesslich überlebt. Doch das Trauma des Krieges bleibt für immer in seinem Gedächtnis eingebrannt. Thomas greift zu Alkohol und Drogen, um Symptome und Schlaflosigkeit zu verdrängen. Eine wirkliche Änderung seiner inneren Wirklichkeit entwickelt sich jedoch erst durch die Begegnung mit dem vietnamesischen Meditationslehrer Thich Nhat Hanh. Von Bernard Glassman zum buddhistischen Mönch ordiniert, gründet er eine Organisation zur Förderung von Gewaltlosigkeit und Frieden. Das Erkennen seiner unterdrückten Gefühle und des eigenen Gewaltpotenzials durch Achtsamkeitspraxis, sowie die Kommunikation mit Soldaten und Kriegsveteranen sind zu seiner Lebensaufgabe geworden. Der erschütternde Bericht besticht durch die ehrliche und mutige Auseinandersetzung des Autors mit seiner Vergangenheit und Gegenwart und ist wegweisend für jeden Menschen
