Happy Teachers Change the World (2016)

A Guide for Cultivating Mindfulness in Education

In the early 2000s Thich Nhat Hanh’s engaged mindfulness teachings began to be applied in workplaces, schools, hospitals, town halls – and even prisons, police forces and parliaments. Perhaps the field where his impact has been greatest is in education, where his “applied ethics” have been taken up by schools and universities. He has trained educators to teach their students how to relax the body and release tension; how to handle painful feelings; to generate happiness; to re-open communication with their parents or friends, and to listen to one another’s challenges. His 2016 book “Happy Teachers Change the World” captures the experience of hundreds of educators putting his teachings into practice.
