I listened to this set of two tapes over, and over again while in my car. How can we practice being happy? How can we recognize joy in the mundane? What can we do every day to be more aware? Thich Nhat Hanh gives us a start. He offers us daily exercises and practices. Spiced with his personal stories and stories from the traditions of Buddhism he is engaging and entertaining. He offers the listener a more mindful, peaceful, and enriching way of living.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Emma S. Quinton on 20 May 2009
Format: Audio CD
I have given this 4 not 5 stars because of the sound quality. It was lovely to listen to, full of wonderful, sensible and I suppose really obvious, but little practised advice on how to live mindfully.
He has a lovely speaking voice and a great sense of humour. Many parts of this touched me but what stuck in my mind the most was the very last part, the part on hugging meditation.
He teaches you how to really hug someone, no patting on the back, really hugging. I try to hug my children like this if they will stay still long enough!! But it has really helped me to appreciate them and the relatively short time we will have together.

Illuminating And Entertaining 29 Mar. 2005
By vincevna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have listened to many Dharma Talks (DT) from Thich Nhat Hanh and this one is one of my favourite. This DT is really fun to listen to. I have learned so much from Hanh's teachings and I am trying to practice and change myself for the benefit of my family.

What you will learn from this DT:

* Samatha (Calm Meditation) and Vipassana (Insight Meditation)
* Alayavijñana (Store Consciousness) and Manovijñana (Mind Consciousness)
* 5 simple meditating exercises (In Out, Flower Fresh, Mountain Solid, Water Reflecting, Space Free)
* Mindfulness in the context of the family
* Communication between fathers and sons
* How to deal with anger and hurt feelings
* The 5 remembrances (Aging, Ill Health, Death, Separation, True Belonging)
* True love vs. possessive love
* Meditation for children
* Inter-being, Impermanence, and much more

Thich Nhat Hanh uses a lot of examples in this DT to help the listeners understand better Buddhism. I highly recommend this product to anyone regardless of their religion.

A Magical Voice. . . 10 Dec. 2000
By JK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette Verified Purchase
I have worn out my cassette set of this performance, and am ordering another. Thich Nhat Hanh has remained the most accessible of the Buddhist teachers for many, many years now. For those who have only read his books, I would recommend purchase of these tapes. His voice on tape completes the efforts of his writing. It is a set to be returned to many times (that's how I've worn mine out!). I've found this set particularly enjoyable listening while driving. As usual, Hanh's parables help to make the complex, simple.
Another virtue of this series is the illustration of Hanh's sense of humor!
Though revered around the world, Hanh's humility and pleasure in interacting with people shines through on this series. It is obvious that he is the diametrical opposite to those religious teachers/leaders who set themselves above their followers.
This tape series can serve as an excellent introduction to Thich Nhat Hanh's work, and hopefully would lead to exploring his large anthology of written work.

Still Seeking Truth @ Sixty-four 24 Aug. 2005
By Bill McCoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I first became aware of Thich Nhat Hanh by virtue of his being nominated for a Nobel Prize by Martin Luther King, Jr., during the Vietnam War years. I had heard little of him since that time until a friend mentioned him as being particularly relevant in her practice of Buddhism, particularly meditation. After listening to this CD, I have to agree with her that his gentle, sometimes humorous delivery provides a wonderful relief from the preachiness that is found in many speakers on religion. In fact, he cuts right through the dogmatic b.s. of most religion and goes directly to the nurturing of one's spirituality. Anyone who is struggling to deal with the violence and chaos of the world would do well to listen to Thich Nhat Hanh.

Audio tour of this idea: present moment, wonderful moment. 11 Jan. 2007
By Donald Fleck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have been listening to this tape for years, not as a guided meditation, but more as a reminder of strong, important, simple ideas that are easy to forget.

Thich Nhat Hanh has published many books and tapes. This audio CD stands out because in its several hours it covers all the major bases of Zen thinking and practice. When you have listened to it you will have all you need to begin a meditation practice, to understand some basics of Zen or EuroAmerican Buddhism, or advance your existing meditation practice.

The CD includes comments on the importance of being fully present in the moment. ("Present moment, wonderful moment") It goes on to teach a basic but very useful guided meditation, with explanations of each step, so that it is easy to learn and understand. For example, one part has you saying to yourself silently on your in-breath, "breathing in I am aware of a tree," and on the out-breath, "breathing out, I smile to the tree." The words alone don't sound like much, but after hearing the comments, it becomes powerful. The author explains that the tree can be a symbol for all the resouces that are outside my body, that are readily available for me. If there is a tree, he says, there have to be sun, rain, and earth, for example, or else there would be no tree. This thought can be calming as we encounter daily anxieties and sometimes feel that we are not getting enough of what we need: we can look on a tree and remember that the earth has all we need that is important. Enough food, enough air, etc. Breathing in I am aware of a tree, breathing out I smile to the tree.

He also uses this idea to advance the ideas of interbeing and impermanence, but I'll let you find out about those when hearing the CD!

Please don't hesitate to e-mail me with any questions.
