In a world where many of us are bombarded by information, much of which is negative and fueled by fear, this book is a place to find calm in the storm. For those of you who may not know him, Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, global spiritual leader, poet and peace activist, revered around the world for his pioneering teachings on mindfulness, global ethics and peace. He has written over 100 books and Peace is Every Step is one of the most widely read.
The book is accessible and will meet you where you are. It is easy to lose sight of the things that are important in our lives in the modern world and this book can provide you with practical tools to make the small shifts in your life and perceptions. There is really something for everyone in this book and it not only helps us understand the ‘what to do’ and the ‘how to do it’, but the ‘why it is important’.
Concepts like mindfulness, relaxing and feeling peace are explored in an engaging and powerful way. If you are looking for the elusive ‘work/life balance’ or just to live a better life, this book will help. I’ve read this book several times and each time get something new from it. Give it a read and then share it with someone you care about. You’ll want to…I promise!
