Thich Nhat Hanh
Thich Nhat Hanh is a person whose very presence brings peace wherever he is!
Sometimes Buddhism can seem like an esoteric adventure. The writings of Thich Nhat Hanh are not like that. They are very simple, direct & clear. People enjoy his work & turn to it again and again because they can easily apply it to their lives. He makes extraordinary wisdom seem like perfectly common sense.
Thich Nhat Hanh (pronounced Tick-Naught-Han) is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk. During the war in Vietnam, he worked tirelessly for reconciliation between North and South Vietnam. His lifelong efforts to generate peace moved Martin Luther King, Jr. to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. He lives in exile in a small community in France where he teaches, writes, gardens, and works to help refugees worldwide. He has conducted many mindfulness retreats in Europe and North America helping veterans, children, environmentalists, psychotherapists, artists and many thousands of individuals seeking peace in their hearts, and in their world.

Every day we do things, we are things that have to do with peace. If we are aware of our life..., our way of looking at things, we will know how to make peace right in the moment, we are alive. --Thich Nhat Hanh
