Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's acclaimed theory of mindfulness explores ways to shine the light of awareness into our intimate relationships.

Absolutely Transforming!

What made the experience of listening to Teachings on Love the most enjoyable?

The stories that are told are very inspirational.

What other book might you compare Teachings on Love to and why?

I would compare it to "The Present Moment" by Thich Nhat Hanh. The content is different and yet the message of love and compassion is very similar.

Which scene was your favorite?

The story of David and Angelina was my favourite!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, the moment when Thich Nhat Hanh says that his driver is his "Angelina". And when he describes having a wall of "Angelina's". And it inspired me so much to think of all the "Angelina's" in my life and to honour them.

Any additional comments?

Love and compassion radiates throughout this recording.
