Book Overview: How to Relax

Stop, relax mindfully, and recharge to control stress and renew mental freshness and clarity.

The fifth book in the bestselling Mindfulness Essentials series, a back-to-basics collection from world-renowned Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh that introduces everyone to the essentials of mindfulness practice.

Thich Nhat Hanh says that when we relax, we "become calm water, and we will reflect reality as it is. If we're not calm, the image we reflect will be distorted. When the image is distorted by our minds, it's not the reality, and it causes lots of suffering." Relaxation is essential for accessing the tranquility and joy that lead to increased personal well-being. With sections on healing, relief from nonstop thinking, transforming unpleasant sounds, solitude, being peace, and more, How to Relax includes meditations you can do to help you achieve the benefits of relaxation no matter where you are.

Scientific studies indicate that meditation contributes tremendously to well-being, general health, and longevity. How to Relax is a unique gift for those who want a simple guide to achieving deep relaxation, controlling stress, and renewing mental freshness and clarity, appropriate for those practicing in any spiritual tradition, whether seasoned practitioners or new to meditations.

"The monk who taught the world mindfulness."
-- TIME

"Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal inner peace and peace on earth."
-- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

"Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thich Nhat Hanh, globally recognized as a spiritual leader, Zen Master, and vocal peace activist, has dedicated his life to transforming suffering and promoting peace in individuals, communities, and the world. Born in Vietnam in 1926, he became a monk at the early age of 16, subsequently gaining recognition for his key role in initiating the "Engaged Buddhism" movement, merging traditional practices with modern societal and humanitarian concerns. Nhat Hanh's extensive body of work includes over 100 books on mindfulness, meditation, and Buddhism, with notable works such as "The Miracle of Mindfulness" and "Peace Is Every Step." His teachings emphasize the intricate interconnectedness of all life, offering transformative perspectives on dealing with anger, fostering compassion, and nurturing peaceful relationships. His compelling insights have significantly influenced the field of mindfulness in the West, earning him the title "The Father of Mindfulness." Beyond his writings, Thich Nhat Hanh founded the Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism in France, the epicenter of his humanitarian work. Known for his active opposition to the Vietnam War, he has strived for peaceful reconciliation and conflict resolution, even getting nominated by Martin Luther King Jr. for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. Today, he remains a luminary figure, spreading insightful wisdom central to personal growth and universal peace.
