Abstract:

Focuses on Buddhist techniques and practices we can use to cut through the busyness and anxieties of daily life and discover the simple happiness of living in the present moment. In our daily lives we are often lost in thought. We lose ourselves in our plans, in our anger, in our worries. The practice of mindfulness frees us from these obsessions, landing us firmly in the present moment-the only moment in which we can be truly alive and truly happy. Offers a range of mindfulness practices that will help us to root ourselves in the present where we can experience the joys and magic of being alive, under any circumstances. Practices include: mindfulness of breath, mindful walking, deep listening, and mindful speech, as well as practices for healing emotional pain and cultivating love for oneself and others. With his characteristic warmth, gentleness, and simplicity, Thich Nhat Hanh offers teachings and practices that anyone can use to help them to live more fully and freely.
