Synopsis:
This new book from Thich Nhat Hanh focuses on Buddhist techniques and practices we can use to cut through our busy lives and the anxieties of daily life to discover the simple happiness of living in the present moment.

In our daily lives we are often lost in thought. We lose ourselves in our future plans, our regrets about the past, in our anger, in our worries. At such moments, we cannot really be here for ourselves. We are not really here for life. The Buddha said, "The past no longer exists, and the future is not here yet". The practices of mindfulness frees us from these obsessions, landing us firmly in the present moment - the only moment in which we can be truly alive and truly happy. You Are Here offers a range of mindfulness practices that will help us to root ourselves in the present - "the address of the Buddha", as Thich Nhat Hanh calls it - where we can experience the joys and magic of being alive, under any circumstances. Practices include: mindfulness of breath, mindful walking, deep listening, and mindful speech, as well as practices for healing emotional pain and cultivating love for oneself and others.

With his characteristic warmth, gentleness, and simplicity, Thich Nhat Hanh offers teachings and practices that anyone can use to live more fully and freely.

"Being truly here is very important - being here for yourself and for the ones you love. Fortunately, being here is not a difficult thing to accomplish. It is enough to breathe, and let go of thinking or planning. Just come back to yourself, concentrate on your breath, and smile. You are here, body and mind together. You are here, you are completely alive. That is a miracle." Thich Nhat Hanh.
