Practice of Meditation

The Miracle of Mindfulness - coverThe Miracle of Mindfulness
- An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation
— by Thich Nhat Hanh

In this beautiful and lucid guide, Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh offers gentle anecdotes and practical exercise as a means of learning the skills of mindfulness - being awake and fully aware. From washing the dishes to answering the phone to peeling an orange, he reminds us that each moment holds within it an opportunity to work toward greater self-understanding and peacefulness.

Three Spring MessagesMiracle of Mindfulness  is a sly commentary on the Anapanasati Sutra - the Sutra on Breath to Maintain Mindfulness. 'Sly' because it doesn't read like a dry commentary at all.

One of Thich Nhat Hanh's most popular books - Miracle of Mindfulness  is about how to take hold of your consciousness and keep it alive to the present reality, whether eating a tangerine, playing with your children, or washing the dishes.

A world-renowned Zen master, Thich Nhat Hanh weaves practical instruction with anecdotes and other stories to show how the meditative mind can be achieved at all times and how it can help us all "reveal and heal".

Nhat Hanh is a master at helping us find a calm refuge within ourselves and teaching us how to reach out from there to the rest of the world.
