Publisher's Summary

Without fear, we are able to see more clearly our connections to others. Without fear, we have more room for understanding and compassion. Without fear, we are truly free.
Most of us live in a constant state of fear - of our past, of illness and aging and death, and of losing the things we treasure most. But it doesn't have to be this way, promises Zen master and Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh.
Drawing on a lifetime of mindfulness in action, Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to use the practice of living in the present to acknowledge and embrace our fears, recognize their origins, and render them powerless. The world-renowned Zen teacher guides us through practical exercises for transforming fear into clarity. The worries of the past and the anxiety of the future disappear as we discover the power of the present moment. Not only are we are able to handle challenging emotions as they arise, but we can summon feelings of well-being and contentment, no matter what the unknown may bring.
Rooted in the moment, we have the capacity to restore balance and happiness and be present with what is beautiful and affirming inside us and around us, every day.

Here Comes The Dark Side!

Thinking you need a pill, drink, smoke or other distraction to get you through? Listen to Thay as you freak out, because freaking out from fear is what we do. We are all one when it comes to fear. Let us sit together and rest under the Tree of mindfulness with Thay to encounter our fear as precious human beings.

A great great book

First let me clarify that this is a Buddhist book filled with the teachings of the Buddha ... i am not a Buddhist yet i found it extremely helpful ... it's kind of a next step after one digs deep into one's self (introspection work) ... it helps with getting over the pain and suffering (after being acknowledged and experienced that is )
I found it much more "REAL" than the self -help books that usually left me lost and frustrated ... i highly recommended
note: the narration was excellent

Dissapointed

Any additional comments?

Dissapointed - had enjoyed his other books and was hoping it would go into the emotions and thought process behind fear which it touches on, but relates back to much into being Mindful, which I appreciate is a great tool, just not what I was hoping for
