This new collection by Thich Nhat Hanh outlines the essential steps by which we can all obtain real and lasting happiness through mindfulness. Each day we perform the tasks of everyday life without thought or awareness - walking, sitting, working, eating, driving, and much more. Thich Nhat Hanh points out that if we remain truly aware of our actions, no matter what task we are performing, we can stay engaged in our lives and better our outlook through mindfulness. This key practice is the foundation for this accessible, easy-to-understand book, and an invaluable tool for change for both seasoned Buddhist practitioners and lay readers interested in bettering their lives through full awareness.
With sections on daily practice, relationships, practicing with children, mindful eating, physical practices, community practices, and extended practices this is a comprehensive guide to mindfulness.
"Enjoy your practice with a relaxed and gentle attitude, with an open mind and receptive heart…Joy and happiness are available to you in the here and now." Thich Nhat Hanh.
