Author: Thich Nahat Hanh
In May 1998, more than four hundred practitioners from around the world gathered around Thich Nhat Hanh for the first XNUMX-day retreat held in North America, Vermont. The retreat followed a very rigorous daily schedule of sitting meditation, walking meditation and silent meals, Dharma discussions and Thich Nhat Hanh talks. This book, which transcribes what was said in that retreat, includes an in-depth instruction on the "Sixteen Ways of Breathing" from the Speech on Full Awareness of Breath. By applying the teachings to daily life, Thich Nhat Hanh shows how it is possible to slow down our hectic pace by coming into contact with our breath.
