Publisher's Summary

This moment is the gateway to enlightenment. It is the only moment we have to be joyful, mindful, and awake. The key is to be there for yourself - to learn to be fully present in your life. This, Thich Nhat Hanh explains, is the heart of Buddhist practice.

In this introduction to the practice of presence, the beloved Buddhist teacher provides indispensable insight on the essentials of Buddhist thought and offers a range of simple, everyday practices for cultivating mindfulness. These teachings empower us to witness the wonder of life and transform our suffering, both within us and around us, into compassion, tenderness, and peace - not in some long and hard struggle, but in this very moment. As Thich Nhat Hanh declares, "the energy of mindfulness is the energy of the Buddha, and it can be produced by anybody." It's as simple as breathing in and breathing out.

You are here is our way to enlightenment

If you are seeking within and searching for answers to manifest a happy life, read this book. Inner peace leads to outer joy, and spreads a positive message to everyone you come in contact with. I just finished the audio book for the first time, and listening to the words has already guided my way of life for the better. I’ll be continuing these teachings and spreading the love in every mindful moment.

Anyone who doesn't know how to deal with one's past, should listened the teacher Thy

Very insightful

Before listening to this audible book I was in a state of anxiousness. But after finishing the book I feel so much more happy. I feel an interconnectedness to everything. The explanation of birth and death makes me feel hopeful and it quiets my distress about immortality. This book is my most favorite book at this moment. I would highly recommend this book to all people regardless of age.

Profoundly wise, yet easy to understand.

I loved how practical this book was. It was easy to understand and to start practicing immediately. Would recommend to anyone struggling with relationships, depression, illness, anxiety... or any suffering.

Very soothing and reassuring

I’ve found myself repeating “you are here” often since I first listen to this book. It is a great phrase both to take me back to the present as well as to remind me of the miracle that I’m in fact, here. Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings are very straight forward and wise. The narrator has a soothing voice so just listening to the book makes me relax.
