Originally written as letters to friends, THE MIRACLE OF MINDFULNESS is an intimate and inspiring small book that instructs the reader on the deceptively simple subject of breathing. Subtly based on an ancient text, the Anapanasati Sutra, also known as the classic guide to the mindfulness of breathing and meditation, Nhat Hanh casts this ageless idea into a contemporary context for readers of any faith. He explains in a clear, direct voice how the focus and clarity found in meditation can be achieved in daily activities. Hanh intersperses real-life stories and profound anecdotes throughout the book to illustrate his points and keep the reader engaged. The ultimate purpose of Nhat Hanh's writing of THE MIRACLE OF MINDFULNESS is to encourage the practice of meditation. For that purpose, he includes dozens of suggestions, recommendations, and even exercises that will assist meditators of any experience level to deepen and enhance their practice. Without over-intellectualizing, Nhat Hanh conveys an overall feeling of peaceful acceptance that is often missing from other texts, but that is key to a successful practice.Read Less
