Touching Peace is short and simple. Hanh makes meditation easy to practice and understand. He also explains, succinctly, why it is important to practice conscious breathing and how a few conscious breaths can have a positive impact on emotions, health, relationships, and the community. It is zen in a nutshell.

Format: Paperback
Almost immediately when reading this book, I felt a sense of relief by the book's emphasis on breathing exercises and certain attitudinal healing that works to improve your own personal level of peace (internal and otherwise). I actually was putting Hahn's techniques into practice while reading the book, very helpful! I found certain eastern spiritual practices covered like Samsara, Sangha Building,etc. very mind opening and worthy of of putting into practice as a means of optimizing my spiritual life. A great book for those interested in meditation and spiritual growth.

In yet another book, Thich Nhat Hanh has taken buddist living and brought to the west. His gentle style and caring for the peole reading this book bring first hand the benifits that living mindfully can bring to the planet.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Bob Pitto on March 5, 2002
Format: Paperback
This was a really good read for several reasons. One reason i gave it a 5 is that the authors personality is strong throughout the book, as if he were in the room. This makes for a great read that is more like a friendly chat than anything. Another great part of this book is the emphasis on mindfulness. If you like this part of the book, you may want to check out Jiddu Krishnamurti's works as well. But the best thing i found about this book was the Sangra (or community) building section. Our happiness does depend very much on other people, so living in peace with the people close to you is very important. This book shows how to make the most of each others presence and our lives.

I was looking for Buddhist writings that were down to earth and relevant to modern Western lifestyle. Being Peace and Touching Peace are just that. They are simple, approachable, and meaningful. I was instantly able to apply what I learned and my practice is better for it.

Format: Paperback
Touching Peace... was one of the first books I read by the author, and I was quite impressed, and have gained a sincere respect and appreciation for Buddhism. Thich Nhat Hanh writes in a simple, uncluttered, informative style that keeps the reader excited about reading the book, while experiencing a state of calm awareness of the present moment. While I don't necessarily believe in everything the author presents, (diet) I can now understand the thought process that goes into such beliefs.

Format: Paperback
Thich Nhat Hanh is a fantastic writer. When I first developed an interest in Buddhist teachings, I was a little reluctant to pick up a lot of books for fear that they would be 150 pages of obscure metaphores. In Thich Nhat Hanh's case (especially with this book) he brings a sense of friendship to the reader from the first couple of pages. Also, he makes what he's writing about very undrstandable. I don't really read very much at all, but I finished this book the night after I bought it. Excellent in all aspects.

Everything by Thich Nhat Hanh is about appreciating the moment. The more you read, the more it becomes a way of life.
