Publisher's Summary

The practice of meditation, according to Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, is like the power of the sun, illuminating the areas of our life that dwell in darkness. Instead of suppressing anger, fear, and guilt, Hanh suggests that we should be mindful of these emotions, which will allow our natural patience and appreciation for life to unfold. Recorded during an intimate family retreat, The Art of Mindful Living presents Thich Nhat Hanh's practical, traditional gathas (teachings) that join ancient meditation practice with the challenges of the modern world. It includes step-by-step guides to meditation, breathing exercises, contemplation, and communication, opening our hearts and minds to the joyous wonder of tranquility and love.

Good message, recording awful

The message thay gives is great (you can read about the content elsewhere). As for the audiobook quality itself, it's awful. Thay does a good job of repeating himself when his accent might have been unclear, but the audio quality is terrible. It was recorded during a lecture, so there's a lot of background noise (coughs, sneezes, people moving about), and the microphone wasn't in the right place. All-in-all it makes it hard to listen to. You can listen to it, but I found it a struggle.

Metaphorically insightful

I love metaphors! I enjoyed the way Hanh used metaphors to relay his thoughts about mindful living. I have started walking meditations and they are an awesome way to enhance your daily life. I agree with others that the sound quality is not very good, and his accent is quite thick. If your attention span is short, this might distract you enough to make this audiobook NOT worth your while. But if you have time to rewind it a few times. .. . . .ENJOY!

loved it, although I was sceptical to start with.

The book is quite easy to sit through and great for getting you into a meditative state and good for anchoring future practice.

a glimpse into Thich Nhat Hanh teaching

a bit brief audiobook, but has valuable insights.
this is my first time listening to Thich Nhat Hanh, he sounds like a gentle soul with a great wealth of spirituality that i can learn from.
