Publisher's Summary

One of the most powerful acts of devotion is also one of the most simple: bowing down and surrendering to the earth. This is the basis for "The Five Prostrations", a time-honored Buddhist meditation practice that joins the mind and body. On Touching the Earth, Buddhist masters Thich Nhat Hanh and Sister Chan Khong update this ancient teaching for the modern student. You learn each phase of this practice, which will help empty your body of resentment while opening it to compassion for all life. Through the songs of Sister Chan Khong (whom Thich Nhat Hanh has called a living bodhisattva, or one dedicated to the enlightenment of all beings) you also gain an ancient Buddhist technique for communicating tenderness and healing to your body.

background noises really distracting

Would you listen to Touching the Earth again? Why?

The content here is absolutely great. The background noises which are just as loud as the
speaker are absolutely ridiculous-constant coughing sneezing, endless, really endless.. These people have been making recordings for years and should be able to filter out these distractions. It came to the point where I had to stop listening.
