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. In this lucidly and beautifully written guide, Thich 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. These deceptively simple practices encourage us to work for peace in the world by turning the "mindless" into the "mindful."
Peace Is Every Step
