November, 2017 - BOOK OF THE MONTH:
'AT HOME IN THE WORLD' by THICH NHAT HANH
"Teaching is not done by talking alone, it is done by how your live your life. My life is my teaching. My life is my message."
I'm not a Buddhist by religion and I've come late to reading Thich Nhat Hanh's books, despite is venerated reputation as the master of modern mindfulness.
Having read this collection of autobiographical stories, I am quite in love with this wonderfully warm and humourous man.
He doesn't profess to be a guru; he's simply a monk who has lived his life with kindness, compassion and humility.
I recommend this book to anyone who'd like to dip into Mindfulness, one page, one story at a time. My personal favourite? Page 178.
