I think this is Thich Nhat Hanh’s best book. It’s a great place to start practicing mindfulness according to his teaching.
“All these practices have the same basic purpose: to bring our minds back to our bodies, to produce our true presence, and to become fully alive so that everything happens in the light of mindfulness.”Happiness – by Thich Nhat Hanh
The book is short and to the point, but it’s rich with practice tips. It gives a real flavour of the style of practice and what you can expect to get out of it.
“We can recognize that we have a treasure of enlightenment, understanding, love, and joy inside us. It’s time to go back to receive our inheritance. These practices can help us claim it.”Happiness – by Thich Nhat Hanh
After explaining how to practice as an individual, he covers the group or sangha practices of the Plum Village tradition that he has created.
