Hanh lives in Plum Village, his meditation center in France, and has led retreats worldwide on the art of mindful living.
"While not intended to be a reader's first guide to Buddhism,
Hanh's newest title is a graceful contribution to contemporary
Buddhist literature and one of the author's finest
"In his new book, Thich Nhat Hanh offers tips on finding some internal and external silence so we can hear the call of beauty. We discover how to pay attention, how to listen deeply, and how to be still. Silence, says Thich Nhat Hanh, is profoundly joyful and nourishing."--Shambhala Sun
"How do we practice mindfulness? As we have come to expect, Hanh's instructions are accessible and concise: 'You stop, you breathe, and you clear your mind.'"--Sam Mowe, Spirituality & Health
