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. On 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.
I receive many touching comments on the Thich Nhat Hanh videos and I'm really happy they have managed to reach so many people and I'm able to help spread his timeless and invaluable teachings. However, it is not without some guilt, considering I have uploaded these talks without permission. I hope if they have been inspiring and meaningful for you that you can either buy the original recordings or donate to Plum Village, to help contribute to the beautiful and important work that is being done there.
