Thich Nhat Hanh

The Art of Mindful Living: How to Bring Love, Compassion and Inner Peace into Your Daily Life by Thich Nhat Hanh (Sounds True Audio) (Audio CD with video additions) (cassette tape edition) (Audible.com download edition, est. time 3 hours) The practice of mindfulness, Thich Nhat Hanh teaches, is like thepower of the sun. It allows you to illuminate the aspects of your life that are in darkness. Instead of suppressing anger, fear, and guilt, mindfulness welcomes all experience into the space of awareness. The Art of Mindful Living is Thich Nhat Hanh's most popular recording about how to bring mindful awareness into all aspects of daily life. Recorded with amazing clarity on state-of-the-art digital equipment, these rare moments were gathered during a family meditation retreat. Kind-purposeful-illuminating-here is an abundant treasure of traditional gathas (teachings) that unify meditation practice with the challenges we face in our world today. The new Audio CD with video additions includes a couple minutes of Thich Nhat Hanh talking and also his chanting of the heart Sutra.
