    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...read more

    ''Es ist nie zu spät für eine glückliche Kindheit.' Dieser berühmte Satz ist für alle gültig, die sich von Thich Nhat Hanh leiten lassen. Die Folgen seelischer Verletzungen in der Kindheit wie Angst und Verlassenheitsgefühle oder Wut und Trauer sind bis in die Zellebene hinein wirksam und blockieren unser inneres Wachstum.

Deshalb ist es wichtig, als Erwachsener zu dem verwundeten inneren Kind Kontakt aufzunehmen. Thich Nhat Hanh zeigt mit einem buddhistischen Ansatz, wie man durch die Praxis der Achtsamkeit das innere...read more

    'Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity' Martin Luther King, Jr, in Nobel Peace Prize nomination It was under the bodhi tree in India 2500 years ago that Buddha achieved the insight that three states of mind were the source of all our unhappiness: ignorance, obsessive desire and anger.

Twenty-five centuries after the Buddha's insight, medical science tells us that the...read more
