In this beautifully written book, Buddhist monk and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Thich Nhat Hanh explains how to acquire the skills of mindfulness. Once we have these skills, we can slow our lives down and discover how to live in the moment - even simple acts like washing the dishes or drinking a cup of tea may be transformed into acts of meditation. Thich Nhat Hanh's gentle anecdotes and practical exercises help us to arrive at greater self-understanding and peacefulness, whether we are beginners or advanced students. Irrespective of our particular religious beliefs, we can begin to reap the immense benefits that meditation has been scientifically proven to offer. We can all learn to experience the miracle of mindfulness for ourselves. n this beautifully written book, Buddhist monk and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Thich Nhat Hanh explains how to acquire the skills of mindfulness.

Thich Nhat Hahn is one of my favourite authors. this is one of his most well known books and focuses on providing the reader with ways to bring the Zen practice of mindfulness to their daily lives. A significant portion of the texts provides in depth advice on how to achieve this when washing the dishes and answering the telephone. By taking on board some of these practices one can become more present in their everyday life.

This book was a gift for another person. I have asked the recipient about the book and he said that it was an extremely useful book which has helped him to see life in a different way. The recipient also said that he had passed the book on to his son, who was experiencing difficulties with lack of time for himself and that the book had helped his son to look at his life experiences in a different light. It seems to be a wonderful book and really helpful to people who are under stress in this difficult world.
