Practicing the Art of Mindful Living
In Touching Peace, Thich Nhat Hanh expands the teachings on practicing the art of mindful living begun in the best selling Being Peace by giving specific, practical instructions on extending our meditation practice into our daily lives.
The book reminds us to focus on what is refreshing and healing within and all around us, and how, paired with the practice of mindful breathing, it can be used as the basis for examining the roots of war and violence, alcoholism and drug abuse, and social alienation.
Touching Peace offers Thich Nhat Hanh’s vision for rebuilding society through strengthening our families and communities, and realising the ultimate dimension of reality in each act of our daily lives. The book concludes with the author’s profound vision and determination to make efforts to alleviate the suffering of all people.
Included are such practices as the conflict resolution tool of the Peace Treaty; Thay’s thoughts on a “diet for a mindful society” based on his interpretation of the 5 Mindfulness Trainings, and his early writings on the environment.
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.
