Publisher's Summary

In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is available in each moment. World-renowned Zen master, spiritual leader, and author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the situations that usually pressure and antagonize us. A ringing telephone can be a signal to call us back to our true selves. Dirty dishes, red lights, and traffic jams are spiritual friends on the path to "mindfulness" - the process of keeping our consciousness alive to our present experience and reality. The most profound satisfactions, the deepest feelings of joy and completeness lie as close at hand as our next aware breath and the smile we can form right now.

Lucidly and beautifully written, Peace Is Every Step contains commentaries, meditations, personal anecdotes, and stories from Nhat Hanh's experiences as a peace activist, teacher, and community leader. It begins where the listener already is - in the kitchen, office, driving a car, walking - and shows how deep meditative presence is available now. Nhat Hanh provides exercises to increase our awareness of our own body and mind through conscious breathing, which can bring immediate joy and peace. Nhat Hanh also shows how to be aware of relationships with others and of the world around us, its beauty and also its pollution and injustices.

The deceptively simple practices of Peace Is Every Step encourage listeners to work for peace in the world as they continue to work on sustaining inner peace by turning the "mindless" into the mindful.

Mindfulness

I came into this book very skeptical that it would help my anxiety. I saw this as “hippy nonsense” for tree huggers. How I was wrong…
I listened to this book driving to work, when my anxiety hit me the worst. For that whole week I felt happy, I felt calm, I felt aware of my anxiety and welcomed it rather that fight it.

I would say I am going to go and walks, hug trees and write poems of flowers. But I will respect my thoughts and be mindful of others. This is a highly rated book and it has helped me more than anything I have ever tried. Absolute respect.

As I breathe out I smile.

Predictable

Fairly predictable rambling. Nothing new or interesting. The guy reading it had an annoying monotone.

A reminder

This book felt like the universe was walking beside me and reminding me of things that used to be so clear to me but at some point I forgot.

Stunning book

Beautiful words so beautifully read. These types of books should be studied by our school children. Then we would reduce suffering. I’ll be listening to this one again and again. Thank you.

Peace in every step

Wonderful book! Must read for everyone! Such easy things to do to feel peaceful life yet many of us find it hard or forget to implement it in every day life!
