FVH bookclub – ‘Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life’ by Thích Nhất Hạnh
June 6, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
FVH Bookclub members
For June 2019 we will be reading
Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life by Thích Nhất Hạnh
Lucidly and beautifully written, PEACE IS EVERY STEP contains commentaries and meditations, personal anecdotes and stories from Nhất Hạnh’s experiences as a peace activist, teacher, and community leader. It begins where the reader already is – in the kitchen, office, driving a car, walking in a park – and shows how deep meditative presence is available now. He provides exercises to increase our awareness of our own body and mind through conscious breathing, which can bring immediate joy and peace. Nhất Hạnh also shows how to be aware of relationships with others and of the world around us, its beauty and also its pollution and injustices. The deceptively simple practices of PEACE IN EVERY STEP encourage the reader to work for peace in the world as he/she continues to work on sustaining inner peace by turning the ‘mindness’ into the mindful.
‘This is a very worthwhile book. It can change individual lives and the life of our society. ‘ H. H. the Dalai Lama.
