Imagine a ringing telephone is a signal to call us back to our true selves. Dirty dishes, red lights, and traffic jams are spiritual friends on the path to “mindfulness”— that’s what Thich Nhat Hanh teaches the process of keeping our consciousness alive to our present experience and reality.

The most profound satisfactions, the deepest feelings of joy and completeness lie as close at hand as our next aware breath and the smile we can form right now.

Peace Is Every Step contains commentaries and meditations, personal anecdotes and stories from Nhat Hanh’s experiences as a peace activist, teacher, and community leader.

It begins where the reader already is — in the kitchen, office, driving a car, walking a part—and shows how deep meditative presence is available in the now.

Learn exercises to increase your awareness of your own body and mind through conscious breathing, which can bring immediate joy and peace.

Nonviolence in our lifetime must begin with ourselves. This book is the guide. Read Peace Is Every Step to learn the deceptively simple practices you can use for peace in the world while you continue to work on sustaining inner peace by turning the “mindless” into the mindFUL.
