    1. What is mindfulness Mindfulness is the awareness of what is going on in us and around us in the present moment What is practicing mindfulness It means that instead of reacting to whatever stimulus is around us or provokes us, we go back to our breathing, we calm our body, we stop our thinking, and we bring the mind home to the body in the present moment When I met Dr Deepak Chopra the other day, he suggested that we press our pause button instead of responding immediately when we get some stimul [...]

    2. Don t know what to write about this book other than I felt super calm and possibly a better person while reading it and i m now going to read everything Thich nhat hanh has ever written.

    3. This is my third Thich Nhat Hanh book and perhaps my favorite I read one chapter a day so I could better digest and contemplate the beauty of each training I found myself meditating on each practice throughout my day.The second half of the book is a wonderful glimpse at the ethical traditions of the world I love the respect with which Hanh treats each tradition, and the truth he looks for in every ethical system His treatment of each gave me greater clarity and understanding of human behavior.On [...]

    5. A very good beginners basic book, although it is a little repetitive towards the end And if you have been meditating or doing something similar for a while, this will probably not be a very enlightening book.But it reads easy and is a very good starting point.

    6. Part of the ongoing reading meditation routine in the morning Don t usually respond to TNH but liked this one has a quickie summation of ethical traditions near the end that was of interest too.

    7. In this helpful guide, the Five Mindfulness Trainings known as the Five Precepts in other Buddhist traditions are thoroughly explained, with practices given for each The last half of the book presents a number of ethical traditions, describing and comparing them with each other The book closes with a summary of Buddhist ethics in simple terms, making sure that the reader understands relevant terms and concepts This practical volume can serve as both a reference guide and a source of encouragemen [...]

    8. I used this book as a morning meditation read, and it was phenomenal Explained very well the five mindfulness practices in an easy to read and understandable format It made me think every day on what I should be changing or doing in my life, providing me with a challenge for the day It s brought me inner peace and just a great start to my mornings Will be reading from this author and visiting his monastery in Escondido for a mindfulness walk and possible retreat

    9. Reading this book at a point in my life when striving for career goals has come close to consuming me it feels a lot like having a long conversation with a wise old man.Waves of wisdom hits you as you flip through pages of the book knowledge you know is worthy and true, but sometimes also feel a bit too detached from your current life, as with the generation gap between you and the old man Many thoughts have begged the question of but could you really practice this if you are to succeed in an ex [...]

    10. The concepts in the book are great, especially regarding the ethics That said, I was not a fan of the author s writing style and felt the book was extremely repetitive even for such a short book as this I liked the summary of different ethics, but it was organized poorly and often started on a thought and never completed it, moving on without explanation I ve read other much better books about mindfulness and Buddhist ethics I would try Thubten Chodron instead.

    11. Excellent One of those books that I feel like I should come back to on a regular weekly basis, to remind myself, and re focus on each specific practice in turn The discussion of various ethical traditions was also quite interesting, though necessarily pretty cursory many schools of ethics omitted.

    12. I m so glad my daughter Valerie gave me this book for Christmas I ve read several of Thich Nhat Hanh s books, and they never disappoint His calm voice and smooth, simple teachings are highly approachable.

    13. Interesting book, but it failed excite me I ve read better books about the precepts or mindfulness trainings as Thich Nhat Hanh refers to them.

    14. Not really for me I admire the concept of mindfulness, but this is not the path in choosing to get there.

    15. I made it halfway through this book, but I just couldn t read it any longer It did not pull me in and it felt drawn out.

    16. This book tho Everyone has to read it and like seriously read it, and then maybe we can have a better luck in fixing humanity.

    17. Bom livro.Um bom livro para quem gosta e precisa de uma melhor percep o do que meditar.Gostei e recomendo a leitura
