The Art of Living


“When you breathe mindfully, you bring your whole body and mind into harmony, concentrating on the wonder of the breath. Our breathing is as beautiful as music.”


SUMMARY: The book, by Zen master, Thich Nhat Hanh, contains meditations to live mindfully with compassion which comes from the inside to the outside of all the facets of our lives.


TAKEAWAYS: Zen Master, Thich Nhat Hanh, brings us his deep wisdom with his usual gentleness and simplicity. His meditations help us to connect with the source of compassion within ourselves first. Once we do this and love ourselves, we naturally bring that light and completeness outside of ourselves into the context of our daily lives where it cannot help but enhance relationships and every facet of our lives. The mindfulness meditations ground us in the now where our lives take place. These teachings are life-changing, and they give us the deep peace and stillness needed to face life and our mortality.
