  • A Great Start to Mindful Practice

    By Davon Person
    I came across the practice of mindfulness after browsing meditation on the internet. I immediately connected to the principles. As I was constantly feeling disconnected from the moment in my life. I was constantly feeling anxious and distracted. I wanted to know more, but, I didn’t know what source to trust. After doing a little research, I found that Thich Nhat Hanh was one of the ambassadors of bringing the practice to the West. I came across this book. And, after reading it, I am deeply impressed. I feel like I am starting my journey towards being truly at peace and happy. I’ll be reading his book, “The Art of Power” next.

    This book has taught me a lot. After several teachings I finally understand, his allusions to specific stories allows the reader to fully enhance the text, along with his words. Such an amazing writer! Thich Nhat Hanh is the 🐐G.O.A.T !

  • This life I have lived

    By Rwgunner
    This book seems to be the way I have ironically lived to a degree. I also have carried pain experienced from Vietnam as a soldier myself. I learned a lot since then. Searching to fill a sort of emptiness that returns from time to time. I guess the guilt of what a soldier unconsciously holds inside. I am a Mindful man, filled with joy at this time in my life. The book enhances it all the more.
  • The book was ok...

    By Aquamommy1
    If you are interested in learning about mindfulness, then you probably already understand the concepts that are shared in this book. I was disappointed because it didn't give you enough suggestions/tips on exactly how to apply this "art" in your life. This book needed to be longer.
  • Deep thought

    By LuoRuiMing
    This book is a good way to bring peace into your life. It is also a good way to take things seriously and make yourself a deep thinker in anything you do.
