Living Without Stress or Fear

A Mindful Path to Freedom from the Emotions that Cause Suffering

A life without stress or fear may seem like an impossible dream-yet Thich Nhat Hanh has spent a lifetime proving that it is not only possible, it is also within our grasp. In Living Without Stress or Fear, Thay shares a message of hope: that we can, through the practice of mindfulness, find freedom from the grip of emotions like anxiety, anger, and despair. “Suffering persists because we nourish the feelings that cause it,” reveals Thich Nhat Hanh. “Through mindful living, we learn to nourish our compassionate nature instead.”. Discovering Your “True Home” in the Present Moment.

We do not find happiness by suppressing emotions like stress or fear. As Thich Nhat Hanh teaches, you can develop a capacity to deal with such emotions by building a sanctuary-your “true home”-in the present moment. Through techniques such as “mindful breathing” and the “begin anew” practice, you purposefully expand your ability to dwell in a state of peaceful clarity, and develop the insight to see through to the underlying causes of negative emotions. By facing your inner darkness with awakened compassion, you can transform toxic energies within you-and radiate the energy of lovingkindness to everyone around you.

Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh is a global spiritual leader, poet and peace activist, revered around the world for his pioneering teachings on mindfulness, global ethics and peace.
