If you are breathing mindfully in and out, you already have insight. Everyone is breathing, but not everyone is aware that they’re breathing. When you breathe in mindfully, you realize that you are alive. If you weren’t alive, you wouldn’t be breathing in. To be alive is the greatest of all miracles, and you can rejoice in being alive. When you breathe in this way, your breath is a celebration of life. — Thich Nhat Hanh
In each pocket-sized book, Thich Nhat Hanh illuminates the basics of mindfulness practice in short, single-paragraph chapters. One book in the set, How To Relax, shows how critical it is to regularly interrupt the hub-bub of our lives to stop, relax mindfully, and recharge. With sections on healing, relief from non-stop thinking, transforming unpleasant sounds, solitude, and “being peace.”
Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh has lived and taught the fundamental Buddhist principles for a joyful life for over seven decades. In this 6 CD Set he teaches the Buddha’s exercises for using the breath to cease internal conflict, release tension and anxiety, and become aware of the conditions that result in happiness and freedom. When body and mind work together as one, you are fully and naturally present in the moment.
