Abstract:

In Keeping the Peace, Thich Nhat Hanh challenges the traditional thinking about the work of police officers, social workers, and other public servants. In clear and simple prose, he speaks to all who work in difficult, people-orientated jobs and shows how to transform anger, stress, and frustration. In this original and groundbreaking work, Thich Nhat Hanh suggests that mindfulness practices can be an integral part of training for public service and can become a key component in creating peace and community. He encourages all of us to "serve with compassion" in our worklife and support each other as a Sangha (community). He makes a compelling case for the belief that the first step in keeping the peace is cultivating inner peace. The book is based on the August 2003 nonsectarian mindfulness retreat for civil servants and their families in Madison, Wisconsin, as well as earlier retreats for business and entertainment professionals. The Wisconsin retreat received national media attention due to a the suit brought forth by Americans United for the Separation Between Church and State, claiming that it was unconstitutional for police officers to attend a religious retreat. Keeping the Peace makes for another outstanding example of Thich Nhat Hanh's ability to present Buddhist practices in his trademark non-denominational and highly accessible style, making them real and applicable in all of life's situations and to diverse members of society.
