Sitting and Walking Meditation

Practicing Mindfulness In The Tradition Of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh

“Life can be found only in the present moment. The past is gone, the future is not yet here, and if we do not go back to ourselves in the present moment, we cannot be in touch with life.”

Thich Nhat Hanh
