Thich Nhat Hanh - Being Love: Teachings to Cultivate Awareness and Intimacy

5.0 ·
1

Weaving together traditional stories, personal experiences and core concepts, Thich Nhat Hanh offers step-by-step practices that foster understanding and intimacy in any kind of relationship: between lovers, parents and children, even those who have done us harm. 

According to the practice of mindfulness, our complete awareness in the present moment is the key to lasting transformation in all areas of our lives-especially in our most intimate relationships. In Being Love, Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to cultivate the four basic qualities of authentic love-maitri (loving-kindness), karuna (compassion), mudita (joy), and upeksha (freedom). When we look deeply into ourselves and our loved ones, these qualities begin to blossom within us, nurturing ourselves and those around us.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
