Stepping into Freedom
by Thich Nhat Hanh

*** Spiritual Book Gift with this order ***

Have you ever wished for a simpler life or an opportunity to transform the stresses of the busyness and complexity of our fast-paced society? Stepping into Freedom offers us a look at Buddhist monastic life and shows us all ways to live simply, beautifully and happily while dwelling in the present moment. It is a book of guidelines, encouraging words, reminders, and poems for novice monks and nuns in the Buddhist tradition.

Included are basic teachings on conscious breathing, sitting and walking meditation, and “mindful manners” that can help us reduce stress, lead a wholesome and happy life, and cultivate our mind of love, whether in a monastic society or in the larger society of the world.

Thich Nhat Hanh has taught four generations of young monks and nuns in Vietnam and the West, as well as thousands of lay practitioners. In Vietnam he cofounded the An Quang Buddhist Institute and the Van Hanh Buddhist University. He has studied and taught at Columbia and Princeton Universities, and the Sorbonne.

About Thich Nhat Hanh, the author:

Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most revered and influential spiritual teachers in the world today. Born in Vietnam in 1926, he became a Zen Buddhist monk at the age of sixteen. Over seven decades of teaching, he has published more than 100 books, which have sold more than five million copies in the United States alone. Exiled from Vietnam in 1966 for promoting peace, his teachings on Buddhism as a path to social and political transformation are responsible for bringing mindfulness to the West. In 1982 he established the international Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism in France, now the largest Buddhist monastery in Europe. He lives in Hue in Central Vietnam.

Book Condition: Used, Very good: The book is pre-owned, but is in very good condition. An attempt to remove a sticker from the back cover pilled a little of the cover paint, but there is no actual damage to the cover or pages. Minimal wear and tear. As seen in pictures. As seen in pictures.
