Known and loved worldwide for his teachings on
mindfulness and compassion, Thich Nhat Hanh was once nominated for the
Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King Jr. On Peacemaking, this beloved Zen master returns to the theme that first brought him to the world's attention: peace, and how to embody it.
deeply into the roots of anger, Thich Nhat Hanh emerges with real
solutions to the violence we commit against ourselves and each other. He
uses the philosophy of nondualism to show that we are not separate, but
one with our feelings and the world, and he teaches that the awareness
of anger, not its suppression, is key to its control.
From the keys to transforming anger through meditation, to putting kindness into action, to heal the wounds between nations, Peacemaking is Thich Nhat Hanh's personal testament to the spiritual and practical power of nonviolence.
Topics include: Interbeing; the effects of awareness; liberation
through insight; cultivating nonviolence toward self; understanding your
enemies; what the Vietnam War taught us; mindfulness and ecology;
restoring yourself; kindness in action; ideal solitude; teaching
children peacemaking; and more.
