​​In a new edition of this classic, simple daily practices to help us live fully in the present moment and experience true happiness—from the renowned Zen monk and bestselling author Thich Nhat Hanh. ​

This moment is the gateway to enlightenment. It is the only moment we have to be joyful, mindful, and awake. The key is to be there for yourself—to learn to be fully present in your life. This, Thich Nhat Hanh explains, is the heart of Buddhist practice.

In this introduction to the practice of presence, the beloved Buddhist teacher provides indispensable insight on the essentials of Buddhist thought and offers a range of simple, everyday practices for cultivating mindfulness. These teachings empower us to witness the wonder of life and transform our suffering, both within us and around us, into compassion, tenderness, and peace—not in some long and hard struggle, but in this very moment. As Thich Nhat Hanh declares, “the energy of mindfulness is the energy of the Buddha, and it can be produced by anybody.” It’s as simple as breathing in and breathing out.

Topics include:
  • How to transform your life through mindfulness of breath
  • Cultivating true love, for yourself and others
  • Learning to listen deeply and speak mindfully
  • Recognizing the impermanence of all things
  • What death teaches us about being fully alive
