Publisher's Summary

An ideal starting point for those interested in Buddhism, Being Peace contains Thich Nhat Hanh's teachings on peace and meditation.

Using real examples from his own life as well as poems and fables, Nhat Hanh explains his key practices for living "right in the moment we are alive". These lessons are taught with fine writing and sparkling phrases that draw the listener in and make Being Peace an audiobook that encourages multiple listenings.

Still as timely as when it was first published over 25 years ago, Being Peace is a revelation for anyone concerned with the state of the world and the quality of life.

A practical guide to skillful, conscious living

Be aware that the essays in BP are not fluffy or feel-good. In fact, the need for activism and "engaged buddhism" are key themes, and the reader is challenged both to be peace and to do good in the world. In particular, this book is a must-read for parents and parents-to-be.

one of my favorite books.

TNH's "Being Peace", is a wonderful, though provoking book. I used to read this book every year or two. Loved listening to it.

I've always heard it in TNHs voice, when reading it, so having someone else narrate it threw me at first.

recommend!

It was very deep and introspective, it hit me on multiple levels and I had to listen in pieces to absorb it full especially because it was so impactful. I highly recommend it. I downloaded two other books by him after this.
