Mindfulness and Psychotherapy | [Thich Nhat Hanh]

Mindfulness and Psychotherapy

This award-winning anthology of poetry and prose takes a new look at being a woman - particularly an aging woman - in a society that prizes and glorifies youth. The works are by both younger writers looking forward in time and writers who have experienced the joys and challenges of growing older. This international best seller was put together by editor Sandra Martz who selected the collection's pieces from thousands of submitted manuscripts.

Publisher's Summary

Before you can help others, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh teaches, you must first bring peace and a deep love of life into your own consciousness. Mindfulness and Psychotherapy was originally created for those in the helping professions, but has proven profoundly helpful to anyone who wants to understand why we are at war with ourselves and one another - and how to mend our conflicts. In a special section on anger, Thich Nhat Hanh sets aside the classic debate about suppression versus expression to offer a radically different way of working with anger that uses techniques of breathing and walking meditation.

    "Expectations interfere ..."

    Expectations interfere with appreciation of the present.
    .
    It is to be regretted that the previous two reviewers had difficulty understanding the speech of Thich Nhat Hanh in this recording.
    .
    Our speaker begins with the recommendation: "The practice of buddhist meditation ... is to get the capacity to enjoy peace ... ", and he continues, to say that often we miss the present moment because we are looking for something else. The previous reviewers might have found benefit in taking that to heart.
    .
    I would suggest that the previous reviewers might learn from their experience, benefit from the opportunity, by resting in awareness of their struggle with the speech sounds of Thich Nhat Hanh, so they might relax out of that struggle, and find peace and openness to the realities of the moment, the moment in this case being the excellent teaching of Thich Nhat Hanh. As long as one gives one's awareness to the barrier, the difficulty, that is what one will know. That difficulty, that struggle, is not necessary; by bringing struggle to the relationship, one's awareness of the relationship is dominated by the experience of one's own contribution of struggle.
    .
    Ironic, that the previous reviewers' need of the teachings interfered with their hearing of the teachings. In such a situation, one might stop trying, stop projecting whatever attempt to understand is not being successful, and rest a few moments in peaceful openness, in simple receptivity, before playing the recording again. Let effort and struggle subside, let the activities of the thinking mind subsite, and receive the teachings with an open heart.
    .
    A teacher cannot teach; only, a student can learn.
    .

    "beautiful"

    i didn't have a problem understanding him. you do have to pay attention but i'm not used to his accent and had little trouble so i guess it depends on the individual listening. give it a try-what he says is worth listening to. after a while i found his voice soothing and almost a trigger to relax and take in wisdom.

    "Wonderful man, difficult listen"

    I have had the priviledge of doing a retreat with the writer many years ago. I was looking forward to listening to the book since I am a psychoptherapist. I gave up due to the difficulty of trying to understand what was being said. The language barrier is a reality with this audio book.

    "Author Should Not Have Narrated"

    Thich Nhat Hanh may have some wonderful things to say, but you can't understand him because his accent is too thick. Even my wife who is Vietnamese could not understand him.

    "East meets West"

    Zen Master uses his best and most powerful insights to help psychotherapists like myself to be willing to put in the time and energy to master Mindful meditation so that we can confidently apply what become our insights as a background to the therapeutic encounter that become powerfully impressive. We need not trade-in your long developed styles to include mindfulness in our sessions and actually notice a palpable change in the client's apparently new sense of well-being. Needless to say, I am filled with admiration for this man and recommend adding this to our psychotherapy tool-kit.

    "Hard to understand speech."
    Would you try another book from Thich Nhat Hanh and/or the narrator?

    I was disappointed. I wanted some techniques for mindfulness practice, instead I heard Buddhist philosophy. I learned some techniques, but not enough to listen through the whole book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Thich Nhat Hanh again?

    only if it is free

    "Mindfulness and Psychotherapy: Thich Nhat Hahn"

    A wonderful book for both professional and lay people. In these painful, fearful and stressful times, globally and in our personal lives,everybody needs to read this to learn to find peace and sanctuary in the present moment. I have experienced bereavement, a major spinal operation, and a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis to contend with all within a twelve months. Thich Nhat Hanh brought me through this and I promise he will do this for you to.
