365 page-a-day reflections to encourage concentration, insight, and mindful engagement with the world around us—from the Zen Buddhist teacher “who taught the world mindfulness” (TIME).

This beautifully designed volume brings together some of Thich Nhat Hanh’s most insightful teachings to inspire readers’ daily practice. Organized around common obstacles and opportunities, Peace Begins with Me offers 365 short reflections that encourage a mindful engagement with the world. Presented in a user-friendly, page-a-day format, and complete with thoughtful, contemplative photos, this book is a perfect companion for experienced or new practitioners. 

Through carefully selected passages from Thich Nhat Hanh’s vast set of published works, this book offers guidance for a diverse range of life experiences, including: 

· letting go of views about ourselves and others;

· decompartmentalizing our lives;

· reconciling with loved ones;

· transforming ordinary moments into extraordinary ones; 

· and touching the present moment—wherever we find ourselves—with equanimity, solidity, and peace. 

With these daily practices, we discover that when we can generate peace in ourselves, the world around us also becomes a more peaceful place. When things calm down inside and around us, transformation and healing become possible.

About the Author

Thich Nhat Hanh was a world-renowned spiritual teacher and peace activist. Born in Vietnam in 1926, he became a Zen Buddhist monk at the age of sixteen. Over seven decades of teaching, he published more than 100 books, which have sold more than four million copies in the United States alone. Exiled from Vietnam in 1966 for promoting peace, his teachings on Buddhism as a path to social and political transformation are responsible for bringing the mindfulness movement to Western culture. He established the international Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism in France, now the largest Buddhist monastery in Europe and the heart of a growing community of mindfulness practice centers around the world. He passed away in 2022 at the age of 95 at his root temple, Tu Hieu, in Hue, Vietnam.
