Buddhadharma : Summer 2009
Alife without stress or fear may seem like an impossible dream, yet Thich Nhat Hanh has spent a lifetime helping those in need— survivors of war, disasters, and poverty—to find peace within. On Living Without Stress or Fear, this treasured Zen master shares a message of hope: that the practice of mindfulness can free us from the grip of emotions like anxiety, anger, and despair. “Suffering persists because we feed the feelings that cause it,” reveals Thich Nhat Hanh. “ Through mindful living, we learn to nourish our compassionate nature instead.” Your “True Home” in the Present Moment We do not find happiness by suppressing emotions like stress or fear. On this 61⁄4-hour audio retreat, Thich Nhat Hanh teaches you how to find your true home in the present moment—an inner sanctuary untouched by turbulent emotions. Through techniques such as mindful breathing and the “begin anew” practice, you purposefully expand your insight to see through to the underlying causes of negative feelings—and to nourish the seeds of peace instead of fear or anger. Through this compassionate tending to your own inner garden, you can transform toxic energies within you—and radiate the energy of lovingkindness to everyone around you. Teachings from a Legendary Voice for Peace Thich Nhat Hanh has lived and taught the path of peace in the most challenging situations—showing how to use any emotion as a positive gift. Refined throughout a lifetime of mindfulness in action, he now shares these transformative teachings and practices to guide you in your own journey to the source of happiness on Living Without Stress or Fear.
