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.
This book opened my eyes to the practice of mindfulness. I keep reading and rereading it. Thank you Thich Naht Hanh. Peace.
The Miracle of Mindfulness is a truly life changing book. In simple and straightforward terms, the author describes the basics of meditation, leading to true relaxation. Although based on Buddhist tradition, this book is useful to all faiths and belief backgrounds. This is now a rare "cornerstone" book in my personal library.
The first of Thich's books to actually be...boring. Sure, the man is a genius and there were many highlightable quotes, but I wish I didn't spend the money on this. Instead I wish I bought his excellent children's book Is Nothing Something?
