Silence The power of quiet in a world full of noise

Nĥát Hạnh

Sound recording - 2015

Many people embark on a seemingly futile search for happiness, running as if there is somewhere else to get to when the world they live in is full of wonder. To be alive is a miracle. Beauty calls to us every day, yet we rarely are in the position to listen. To hear the call of beauty and respond to it, we need silence. Silence shows us how to find and maintain our equanimity amid the barrage of noise. Thich Nhat Hanh guides us on a path to cultivate calm even in the most chaotic places. This gi...ft of silence doesn't require hours upon hours of silent meditation or an existing practice of any kind. Through careful breathing and mindfulness techniques, he teaches us how to become truly present in the moment, to recognize the beauty surrounding us, and to find harmony. With mindfulness comes stillness and the silence we need to come back to ourselves and discover who we are and what we truly want--the keys to happiness and well-being.
