The Miracle of Mindfulness: A Manual on Meditation

The Miracle of Mindfulness: A Manual on Meditation

What are the main ideas?

If I implemented one idea from this book right now, which one would it be?

the purpose of practicing mindfulness is to create more mindful awareness during the rest of your life. sitting practice builds the muscles that we, in theory, use in the rest of life. remember this relationship and it is fully possible to ignore the hype-culture of retreat.

How would I describe the book to a friend?

in this book, thich nhat hanh goes through the simple and revolutionary basics of mindfulness. it’s a letter he wrote to some folks who were still doing peace in his/their home, vietnam. the book is a gentle earth-shattering show-stopper… in his beautiful unassuming way, nhat hanh shares the keys to liberation from suffering. hint: it’s all in the mind. read it cover to cover, especially the practices section. it’s all gold!
