Updates / New Book: How to Connect

We are delighted to announce the publication of How to Connect, the eighth book in the bestselling Mindfulness Essentials series.

We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness.

Thich Nhat Hanh

This series is a back-to-basics collection from Thich Nhat Hanh that introduces everyone to the essentials of mindfulness practice.⁠⁠

With our world experiencing an epidemic of loneliness, environmental dissociation, and digital overload, this pocket-sized How To book reminds us of our crucial need to connect to ourselves, our ancestors, and our planet. ⁠⁠

Written with characteristic simplicity and kindness, these wise meditations teach us how to remember, at any time, our fundamental gift of belonging.
