For most of us, even when we are joyful, there is fear behind our joy. We fear the moment will end, that we won’t get what we need, that we will lose what we love, or will not be safe. In this powerful work, Nobel Peace Prize nominee Thich Nhat Hanh explains how to acknowledge our fear, and transform it. This is the way to true happiness and freedom.
Using personal anecdotes from a long and eventful life, as well as his experience as a Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh explains how the practical techniques of mindfulness can help us all. He shows how to ground ourselves in the present moment and find the courage to face what frightens us so that we, too, can master fear and embrace life.
