    One thought on “The Art of Mindfulness”

    1. Like a breath of fresh air, Hanh gives practical exercises to return to the calm soul, the oasis of our true selves. Philosophy quotes first, then some exercises :----------------------------------** In Sanskrit, the word “budh” means awake. A full Buddha is someone who is awake all day.** Enlightenment and awareness are of the same substance.** Concentrate on watering the seeds of happiness, joy, and peace.** The first aim of the practice is to stop forgetfulness Forgetfulness is the opposi [...]

    2. I listened to this book as an ebook download to my Nook. It is a lecture, so to speak, by Thich Nhat Hanh and I was glad to be able to listen to him because I really got a sense of the author, you could tell when he was smiling or thought something was a bit humorous and you could hear him pause to be thoughtful over choosing his words. Also, the audience responded to his words with laughter and approval. The sound of the bell reminds one to breathe and to practise what he is explaining. My favo [...]

    3. Another great book of his. Always worth reading. It's straight forward with offering advice and guidance on living with mindfulness.

    4. InspiringI have this short but powerful read into the art of mindfulness. The methods explained in the book work to give you peace in your life through practicing mindful breathing.

    5. To look into yourself, to live in the moment, isn't very hard if you just start. The Art of Mindfulness is a start, pure an simple.John

    6. The book open wide doors for your mind to explore new opportunities on healing it self from life stresses by practicing some kind of technics in controlling your breath.

    7. I listened to the book, it was in a taped lecture format. It was short and to the point. It was my first time with any of Hanh's work or perspective so I found it interesting.Vaishali Joglekar's review from June 2016 is an excellent summary of the lectures.Key take aways from the work for me were:-Breathing in life-Be Present in the Moment-Engage with and let go of your anger-You are responsible for your actions and feelingsI liked the stories he told to illustrate his points. Like learning how [...]

    8. O texto é em realidade o capítulo de um seus livros (The art of power) e merece a leitura. O autor consegue se comunicar de maneira fácil e torna o texto interessante trazendo a prática para a vida diária.Pode ser lido e aproveitado por quem já estuda o tema e também por quem nunca ouviu falar sobre o assunto.Estar 100% presente no que se faz é uma prática para a vida toda que está cada vez mais complicada pelo mundo como tem sido construído até aqui. De qualquer forma, acho que a te [...]

    9. I experienced this as an audio book, and I highly recommend this format. This is a great primer on meditation and living with awareness of the world around you. One great lesson from this book is about presence - being fully present with the person you're interacting with. Some people are naturally good at being fully present, but this book shows that it's a skill that can be practiced and perfected like any other skill.I listen to this book about once per month.

    10. I was glad to find a summary format book on Thich Nhat Hanh's practice of mindfulness since I want to read a million other things as well as his works, but somehow this brief summary felt really scewed towards business people (perhaps that's the idea behind HarperOne Select) and just didn't leave me with a good impression, nor led me to want to read the full book.

    11. I pick this because my mind couldnt seem to relax since last year. I like this book and the idea of mindfulness. Its kind a new subject to me, of course. But unfortunately, I have to read this in one sitting because I need to return it back to library. Hahaha. May be I'll borrow it once again, to read it more thoroughly.

    12. I enjoyed the comparison and explanations. The most interesting being the concept not of perfection that is important; the concept of mindfulness and action accordingly be a constant practice. So staying with the practice is more important than perfecting it.

    13. A good book for practising mindfulness.The book is simple and direct. Useful for a practitioner of meditation. However I feel the book "power of Now" describes this subject in much more detail.

    14. he Art of Mindfulness was another fantastic book. I needn’t say much about it only that if your interested in reading about Buddhism or meditation. Just read everything you can get your hands on by TNH.

    15. I love listening to Thich Nhat Hanh and this was another beautiful compilation. I especially loved how he said for the moon to shine in water, the water has to be still. Its water's responsibility, not the moon's!

    16. Very short. A quick intro to the author's Five Practices of Mindfulness. The first 3 seem easy to follow, the last 2 for me would be more difficult. The author has written a lot of books about living a better, fuller, more mindful life. Not sure if I'll read any others.

    17. This is an extract from other books by Thích Nhất Hạnh and it's very short at that, but nevertheless it's a useful reminder.

    18. Excellent book, very simple powerful teachings here and now, practice mindfulness of everything you do. Be kind with your body, mind and other human beings, animals, minerals, do things with love and compassion among various others basic thingsn't this beautiful?!

    19. You only have so much time and effort, focus on the here and now, not the past or what ifs. I read this as a pdf, it was pretty short and to the point. I'm not very mindful, but eh

    20. PeacefulThe explaination of the meanings of the sutras were very well presented. Making this a very good entry book for filks whom are interested in this area.

    21. While I do not ascribe to most of the spiritual parts, there were some good tidbits I pulled from this that will be useful for me on my current path.
