Description

Thich Nhat Hanh explores the connection between psychology, neuroscience, and meditation. He discuss the importance of creativity and visualization in a successful meditation practice, presents basic Buddhist practices (in particular walking meditation and sitting meditation), and writes about the importance of brotherhood and sisterhood in finding love, happiness, and living harmoniously with others. Buddha Mind, Buddha Body continues and reviews the material in Understanding Our Mind by the same author (ISBN 1888375302). It opens with the question: Is free will possible? It becomes a leitmotif as Thich Nhat Hanh explores how the mind functions and how we can work with it to cultivate more freedom and understanding, be in closer touch with reality, and create the conditions for our own happiness. Buddha Mind, Buddha Body is punctuated with stories from the life of the Buddha as well as stories and observations from Thich Nhat Hanh's own life. Delivered in his inimitable light, clear, often-humorous style, Buddha Mind, Buddha Bodywill appeal to those new to the subject and at the same time challenge those who are already familiar with it.
