the sun my heart
One of Thich Nhat Hanh's most beloved books, The Sun My Heart contains the journey, on the path of everyday practice, from mindfulness to insight.
Using the objects and events of everyday life in his hermitage in Plum Village—the gradual settling of the pulp in a glass of apple juice or the wind blowing into the room and scattering papers about—Thich Nhat Hanh draws from Buddhist psychology, epistemology, and the world of contemporary literature and science to guide the reader along the path of clarity and understanding.
A companion guide for meditators, The Sun My Heart contains many of Thich Nhat Hanh's core teachings, and encourages readers to use their practice to discover their own insights. As he writes: "Wisdom is a living stream, not an icon to be preserved in a museum."
Available in this stunning hardcover commemorative edition for the first time and with a new foreword from the convener of the 2015 Paris Climate talks, Christiana Figueres, this is the perfect introduction to Thich Nhat Hanh's teachings, for yourself or for your loved ones.
