Banyen's Description: 

Around the world, Thich Nhat Hanh has seen a growing unhappiness among many people. He’s seen the hectic pace of our day-to-day lives taking a deep toll on our “ease of well-being.” In response, he sat down to write Peace Is Every Breath, a book that makes the core teachings of Buddha accessible for everyone. In this gentle jewel of a book, Thich Nhat Hanh does not suggest that we escape from reality and put our busy lives on hold, far from it. Instead, he provides the insight and tools we need to incorporate the practice of mindfulness into our every waking moment. He shows us how we can transcend the mad rush of our days and discover within the here and now our own innate ability to experience inner peace and happiness.

Offering personal anecdotes, meditations, “Gathas for Daily Practice,” and advice for mindfully connecting with our present experience, he guides us around potential pitfalls along the way. We do not need to escape reality, but rather to really connect with it, to enjoy the ease and peace that is possible with every breath we take. The power of mindfulness can heal us from the suffering caused through the many stresses that surround us. Including original calligraphy by Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Breath is filled with seasoned wisdom-presence and practical advice.

This book, Peace is Every Breath, is a continuation of The Miracle of Mindfulness and Peace Is Every Step in that it’s a short book, easy to read, and very easy to put into practice. I guarantee that you can be in touch with real peace and joy many times each day, even if you live a very full schedule. Allow this book to be your companion…

Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Buddhist Zen Master, poet, scholar, and peace activist.
