Peace Begins Here

Palestinians and Israelis Listening to Each Other

In this book Thich Nhat Hanh demonstrates how a real peace process is based on spiritual, not political strength. Peace Begins Here was inspired by an ongoing retreat project for Israelis and Palestinians at Plum Village, and offers practical ways to handle strong emotions and misperceptions and provides a possible way out of the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.

Peace Begins Here is rich with personal stories from Israeli and Palestinian participants in the peace retreats, as well as examples from Thich Nhat Hanh’s life, including his experience with nonviolent action during the war in Vietnam and its aftermath.

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.
