The Hands of Peace

The Hand of Peace. Photo by: Brian Kipp

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a dialogue between Thich Nhat Hanh and David Suzuki. Of course, I took many pictures of each of them, showing Thay’s gestures, expressions as well as his open and compassionate countenance.

Part way through the discussion I became aware of the separate dialogue that was going on in Thay’s hands. His hands spoke to me of peace, conviction and true empathy, reinforcing his powerful words. ByBrian Kipp

A tiny bud of a smile on your lips nourishes awareness and calms you. It returns you to the peace you had lost. A smile is the most basic kind of peace work.
