About this deal

I was blessed with a remarkable teacher named Michael Cantwell, who was trained in Western and traditional medicines. Everyone suffering from trauma has the capacity to heal within them, but they may not know it, and they may have obstacles to accessing their inner wisdom. Healing is an extraordinary story that takes the reader from the rice fields of Vietnam to the peaceful surrounding of Thich Nhat Hanh’s monastery in Plum Village where Sister Dang.

Admittedly, I was not enthusiastic at the prospect since I was already quite tired after a long day at the retreat, but out of a sense of gratitude to our hosts, I still showed up. The only thing I would bug a very sick friend about is to find a doctor you trust and who respects you.The best thing anyone ever gave me while I was in the hospital was a coffee table book about people eating bugs around the world. In fact, people from many faiths or no faith at all can follow them, because Buddhism, at its root, is not a religion, but a practical approach to the art of living. I remember opening the FedEx package with my brothers just before we started digging, and pulling out some kind of plastic container. Cantwell, he leads me back into the visualization mode and guides me to describe how I might picture the illness this time. The quickest and probably easiest way I would suggest, would be to get the eBook from our Publishing house Parallax -> https://www.

After all, as the example of the Buddha and two and a half millennia of practice demonstrate, if we follow the path wholeheartedly, with proper guidance, it can lead us to complete freedom from every type of suffering.Dear friends, Due to scheduling conflicts, it hasn’t been possible to record new episodes of The Way Out Is In during October. Yet in that moment, on that day in front of this evening primrose plant, I woke up to the fact that I had never directly experienced how a flower blooms! Below, you can read the book’s preface, where Sister Dang Nghiem introduces the reader to her inspirations, and to the practices subsequently discussed in greater detail.

As a follower of Thich Nhat Hahn's teachings, and living one mile from Deer Park Monastery, this was such a blessing.When I ordained as a nun in 2000, I learned from Thay, the name by which I address my beloved teacher, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, a teaching that I have found to be invaluable in my healing process: the "inner child" within us. Her writing is clear, concise, and engaging as she shares her story of healing along with other’s stories. Over the years, as I became a Dharma teacher in Thay’s tradition, known as the Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism, many young people have come to me for counseling and I have taught them the same practices and walked together with them, privileged to witness their healing. At a deep level, we can always tap into our own embodied wisdom through practicing mindfulness in our daily lives, which brings about the deepest transformation and healing.

The practice of meditation is not meant to be a substitute for therapy with trained professionals, but if followed correctly, this path transforms suffering into true peace, happiness, and freedom. In 2019 she was honored by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Global Studies program to deliver the T. Our aspiration is to contribute to collective insight and awakening, bringing about a more joyful, healthy, and compassionate society. She doesn't shy away from uncomfortable topics, so read at your own pace and take breaks when you need to. In recent years, looking back at my journal entries as a young woman, I saw that even before meeting Thay, I had been able to name and acknowledge the “wounded child” inside me.I think this is one of those books where you can read it through, read individual chapters, go back and re-read the whole thing, or focus on specific paragraphs and practises. When we made our way up to his room, he was lying on the bed with the oncologist standing next to him. But when it’s excruciating, and you want to break windows or pour coffee on your keyboard, aim for a thirty-second endpoint.
