Hanh brings  a concise, practical guide to understanding and developing our most powerful inner resource—silence—to help us find happiness, purpose, and amazing inspiration when it comes to all things relating to the self and its’ connection with the world surrounding as well as our fellow humans. There is a much deeper meaning to simple silence that should be mastered. In order to find some of the things we desperately want within our lives, we must look within ourselves. Everything we desire can be found if we just listen to the silence we’re so afraid of: Love, Compassion, Healing, Happiness.

Some call Thich Nhat Hanh a Zen master and I have to agree.

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 gift 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.
