Staff Reviews


In Fear: Essential Wisdom For Getting Through the Storm, Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist Zen Master, poet, scholar and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, teaches how living in the present with mindfulness can help us to be aware of and overcome our fears. "If we're afraid all the time, we miss out on the wonderful fact that we're alive and can be happy right now." Thich Nhat Hanh speaks of the importance of listening deeply, breathing consciously, speaking lovingly, cultivating insight and relaxing deeply to transform fear and stress. He describes how fear carries us away from our inner peace and from our own bodies into imaginary worlds. With great clarity, he shares practices, exercises and mantras to approach awareness in the present moment. Enjoy the teachings! - Pinna

Description


"Written in words so intimate, calm, kind, and immediate, this extraordinary book feels like a message from our very own heart....Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most important voices of our time, and we have never needed to listen to him more than now."
--Sogyal Rinpoche

Fear is destructive, a pervasive problem we all face. Vietnamese Buddhist Zen Master, poet, scholar, peace activist, and one of the foremost spiritual leaders in the world--a gifted teacher who was once nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King Jr.--Thich Nhat Hanh has written a powerful and practical strategic guide to overcoming our debilitating uncertainties and personal terrors. The New York Times said Hanh, "ranks second only to the Dalai Lama" as the Buddhist leader with the most influence in the West. In Fear: Essential Wisdom for Getting through the Storm, Hanh explores the origins of our fears, illuminating a path to finding peace and freedom from anxiety and offering powerful tools to help us eradicate it from our lives
