Audio Book Summary

In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peacethat 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 ringingtelephone can be a signal to call us back to our true selves. Dirty dishes, redlights, and traffic jams are spiritual friends on the path to "mindfulness"-theprocess of keeping our consciousness alive to our present experience andreality. The most profound satisfactions, the deepest feelings of joy andcompleteness lie as close at hand as our next aware breath and the smile we canform right now.
Lucidly and beautifully written, Peace Is Every Step contains commentaries, meditations, personalanecdotes, and stories from Nhat Hanh's experiences as a peace activist,teacher, and community leader. It begins where the reader already is-in thekitchen, office, driving a car, walking-and shows how deep meditativepresence is available now. Nhat Hanh provides exercises to increase ourawareness of our own body and mind through conscious breathing, which can bringimmediate joy and peace. Nhat Hanh also shows how to be aware of relationshipswith others and of the world around us, its beauty and also its pollution andinjustices. The deceptively simple practices of Peace Is Every Step encourage readers to work for peace in the world as they continue to work onsustaining inner peace by turning the "mindless" into the mindful.
