In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is available in each moment. World-renowned Zen master, spiritual leader, and author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the situations that usually pressure and antagonize us. A ringing telephone can be a signal to call us back to our true selves. Dirty dishes, red lights, and traffic jams are spiritual friends on the path to “mindfulness”—the process of keeping our consciousness alive to our present experience and reality. The most profound satisfactions, the deepest feelings of joy and completeness lie as close at hand as our next aware breath and the smile we can form right now.

Lucidly and beautifully written, Peace Is Every Step contains commentaries, meditations, personal anecdotes, and stories from Nhat Hanh’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—and shows how deep meditative presence is available now. Nhat Hanh provides exercises to increase our awareness of our own body and mind through conscious breathing, which can bring immediate joy and peace. Nhat Hanh 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 Is Every Step encourage readers to work for peace in the world as they continue to work on sustaining inner peace by turning the “mindless” into the mindful.

    " This is my second Thich Nhat Hahn book, and I'm no Zen master, but I dig his style/outlook. I like how the book is organized into not-huge, distinct chunks that each stand nicely on their own and also have a moving effect when digested as a larger whole. I'm sorta picky about narrators, and I think this one is great. Not melodramatic, not overtly subtle, but steady and purposeful, with a kind feel. I fully recommend this audiobook for those ready to embrace this peaceful way of thinking. "
