In his travels around the country and the world, Zen Master and international bestselling author Thich Nhat Hanh witnessed a growing unhappiness among the many people he encountered. He saw the hectic pace of our day-to-day lives taking a toll on our health and well-being. In response, the renowned teacher sat down to write Peace Is Every Breath, a book that makes the core teachings of Buddha accessible for everyone. In this 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. Thich Nhat Hanh 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, and advice for mindfully connecting with our present experience, Thich Nhat Hanh guides us around potential pitfalls along the way. We do not need to escape reality to harness the joy and peace that is possible with every breath we take—the power of mindfulness can heal us from the suffering caused by the many stresses that surround us.

Peace Is Every Breath is a timely book filled with timeless wisdom and practical advice and is destined to become a classic.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kittykat | 2/20/2014

    " I did and did not like this one, so it gets a meh rating. On the one hand, I like the writing style with its Rumi-esque meditations in there. On the other, I was kind of hoping for a little bit more oomph or specific advice for things to try to help add that spiritual dimension in there. Or at least a little bit more grounding on what zen is supposed to be about in case people were wondering. It comes off as being sort of generically spiritual instead of genuine with the way it's written. OK book, though I would say if you're really wanting more of that deep-spiritual-poetic thing going on you should check out some of the Rumi books instead. "

    " Always loving, always practical, that's why I love Thich Nhat Hanh. It's spirituality I can apply to daily life, principles that make such sense, that I shouldn't need to remind myself of them on a daily basis, and yet I do. I can't think of a more compassionate teacher than this Vietnamese Buddhist monk! "
