In The Art of Power, world-renowned Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh offers a surprising and
radical new understanding of how we attain true power.
Power is one of the central
issues in our lives. From work to personal relationships, the struggle for
power plays a pivotal role and, more often than not, prevents us from attaining
freedom and happiness. The bottom-line mentality in our culture seeps unnoticed
into every other part of our lives. Thich Nhat Hanh illustrates how our current
understanding of power leads us on a never-ending search for external markers
like job title or salary. This me-first approach to life may have originated in
the business world, but the stress, fear, and anxiety it causes are being felt
by all of us every day.
Turning the conventional
understanding on its head, Thich Nhat Hanh teaches us that true power comes
from within and that what we seek we already have. With colorful anecdotes, precise
language, and concrete practices, this book will have an important and lasting
legacy on how we understand our culture and choose to live our lives. Download and start listening now!
