In troubled times, there is an urgency to understand ourselves and our world. We have so many questions, and they tug at us night and day, consciously and unconsciously. In this important volume Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh——one of the most revered spiritual leaders in the world today——reveals an art of living in mindfulness that helps us answer life’s deepest questions and experience the happiness and freedom we desire. Thich Nhat Hanh presents, for the first time, seven transformative meditations that open up new perspectives on our lives, our relationships and our interconnectedness with the world around us. Based on the last full talks before his sudden hospitalization, and drawing on intimate examples from his own life, Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how these seven meditations can free us to live a happy, peaceful and active life, and face ageing and dying with curiosity and joy and without fear. Containing the essence of the Buddha’s teachings and Thich Nhat Hanh’s poignant, timeless, and clarifying prose, The Art of Living provides a spiritual dimension to our lives. This is not an effort to escape life or to dwell in a place of bliss outside of this world. Instead, this path will allow us to discover where we come from and where we are going. And most of all, it will generate happiness, understanding, and love, so we can live deeply in each moment of our life, right where we are.

Time and the Art of Living


  • Author : Robert Grudin
  • Publisher : Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
  • Release : 1997-09
  • ISBN : 9780395898314
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

This is a book about time--about one's own journey through it and, more important, about enlarging the pleasure one takes in that journey. It's about memory of the past, hope and fear for the future, and how they color, for better and for worse, one's experience of the present. Ultimately, it's a book about freedom--freedom from despair of the clock, of the aging body, of the seeming waste of one's daily routine, the freedom that comes with acceptance and appreciation of the human dimensions of time and of the place of each passing moment on life's bounteous continuum. For Robert Grudin, living is an art, and cultivating a creative partnership with time is one of the keys to mastering it. In a series of wise, witty, and playful meditations, he suggests that happiness lies not in the effort to conquer time but rather in learning "to bend to its curve," in hearing its music and learning to dance to it. Grudin offers practical advice and mental exercises designed to help the reader use time more effectively, but this is no ordinary self-help book. It is instead a kind of wisdom literature, a guide to life, a feast for the mind and for the spirit.

  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

This volume examines the questions of what constitutes a good life and how one can achieve happiness and well-being, and analyses different ways in which people can strive for a good life. First, it presents an overview on important concepts in psychology that are related to living a good life. Then, a new approach is introduced: the concept of art-of-living as a holistic way to reach happiness. Empirical studies are reported involving a questionnaire for measuring art-of-living, and the validity of the questionnaire is demonstrated with respect to a wide range of concepts. In addition, the volume provides results from empirical studies, showing that, and how, art-of-living and happiness can be enhanced. Several intervention studies are described in detail, which have been performed with different groups of subjects, including pupils, university students and employees. Also, results of interviews are summarized, which were held with people who had been nominated as exemplary artists-of-living. The volume concludes with a description of art-of-living in autobiographies, and presents suggestions for further research with respect to art-of-living.

  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Spiritual Health and Healing means using spiritual concepts of different traditions to reveal the true purpose of life. As human beings, we live in the world with a sense of duty and responsibility to society, and at the same time we experience the ultimate spiritual beings within our physical bodies. When we are in harmony with the mother earth, father sky, and the entire cosmos, we experience the right relationship with all that exists in the universe and we then reside in peace, joy, love and compassion. There is no more suffering or struggle. Even when suffering or struggles do exist, they solely serve to remind us that we are human beings with a purpose to live and experience the beauty and love beyond everyday experiences. Spiritual healing is nothing magical or superficial. It is rooted in our everyday lives and an everyday, living philosophy. In life we experience suffering in many different ways. Spiritual healing teaches us the ways to connect to the cosmos and divinity through our body and experiences. These connecting agents serve the same function, and they are neither superior nor inferior to one another. The lessons in Spiritual Health and Healing are derived from different traditions and serve to bring us harmony within the human race, as well as to bring peace to everyone and to every place.
