Summary

Mindfulness, teaches Thich Nhat Hanh, is like the power of the sun: It illuminates the parts of your life that are in darkness. Instead of suppressing anger, fear, and guilt, mindfulness welcomes all experience. Mindful Living is a special gift-boxed collection of this beloved Zen master's most popular audio sessions, with heartfelt advice on coming fully alive to yourself and the world. The set includes:

  • The Art of Mindful Living - Thich Nhat Hanh shows you how to use mindfulness to welcome all aspects of experience, even the most challenging parts
  • Teachings on Love - In the Buddhist tradition, genuine love comprises four qualities: loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and freedom, and here you will learn how to enrich relationships of every kind with these transcendent qualities
  • Touching the Earth - Thich Nhat Hanh and Sister Chân Không teach an ancient Buddhist practice to unify body and mind in an exquisite gesture of spiritual surrender.

A good overview of integrating mindfulness

A good overview of integrating mindfulness into daily life. Thay expounds Buddhist philosophy in a way that is easy to embody for westerners.

Transformative

Life's hardships, which of course we all have, can be a source of profound growth and strength. I will reside peacefully in this space always, even in my darkest hours.

Like a flower

Loved his voice, didn't expect to . Peaceful, practical, funny, inspiring, sometimes what I needed to hear but not always what I wanted to hear.

Reminded me Too Much

Great book other than it was repetitive, the Asian singing and very SLOW narration. It kept losing my attention.

Masterpiece

Thay is a True Spiritual Teacher. Authentic, skillful, tender yet fearless. I cannot get enough of his shadings and expressions. But this one is at the top. It is excellent!

I loved it all, very informative.

To look at life in a different light and choose love I did learn a lot from the stories.

Thich is such an enlightened speaker

Lovely to hear almost 6 hours of his speeches in his own words. He is a phenomenal and enlightened speaker and delivers time and again with brilliant insights. From there is no way to happiness, happiness is the way—to the best way to take care of the future is to take care of the present moment—you will here about both of these and more in these series of lectures.

Wonderful teacher

Unfortunately the first two "chapters" repeat the same material, which was slightly annoying. A lot of material about relationships and domestic communication. Worth hearing.
