One of the world's great meditation teachers offers thirty-four guided exercises that will bring both beginning and experienced practitioners into closer touch with their bodies, their inner selves, their families, and the world. Compassionate and wise, Thich Nhat Hanh's healing words help us acknowledge and dissolve anger and separation by illuminating the way toward the miracle of mindfulness.

An important and beautiful book about how we can bring peace and joy into our lives. Reading this rare book on the refinement of meditation practice is meditation itself.

--JOAN HALIFAX, author of The Fruitful Darkness: Reconnecting with the Body of the Earth

Any one of these meditations, if practiced with sincerity and wholeheartedness, can make the richness of the present moment apparent and bring you closer to yourself.

--JON KABAT-ZINN, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are

Here the deepest, subtlest teachings of the Dharma are made as immediate as the miracle of our own breathing.

--JOANNA MACY, author of World As Lover, World As Self

Thich Nhat Hanh is a great teacher. More than anyone I know, he has made mindfulness practice accessible to the modern world. His clear, precise exercises really work. I know because I use them. I think Thich Nhat Hanh is a living master.

--NATALIE GOLDBERG, author of Writing Down the Bones

One of the best available introductions to the wisdom and beauty of meditation practice. Written in anecdotal style, this deceptively simple book shows you how to transform the texture of your daily life--whether your're eating a tangerine or doing the dishes.
