Thich Nhat Hanh, the renowned Zen monk, author, and meditation master, distils the essence of Buddhist thought and practice, emphasizing the power of mindfulness to transform our lives. “Mindfulness is not an evasion or an escape” he explains. “It means being here, present, and totally alive. It is true freedom—and without this freedom, there is no happiness.”

Based on a retreat that Thich Nhat Hanh led in 2001 in France, this book offers a range of simple, effective practices for cultivating mindfulness, including awareness of breathing and walking, deep listening, and skilful speech. You Are Here also offers guidance on healing emotional pain and manifesting real love and compassion in our relationships with others.

Simple, warm, direct, and startlingly potent, this book reveals the heart of the Buddhist path and helps us to reconnect with the joy and wonder of being alive, regardless of life’s changing circumstances.

This is the first Thich Nhat Hanh book I have read, and I found it to be an excellent and simple description of Buddhist philosophy. Many other books on Buddhism have left me scratching my head, thinking, "Huh?" You are Here was easy to read and, most importantly, understandable.

This will be a book I come back to, again and again. ( )

There's nothing particularly new here- it's the same old "breathing in, I know that I am breathing in, breathing out, I know that I am breathing out."
For all that, it never gets old for me. I need, constantly, to be reminded to be mindful, to be reminded that now, this very moment, is all I ever have.

I'm not at all religious, but the doctrine of mindfulness speaks deeply to me and is one I strive, unsuccessfully, to practice. This little gem of a book is a bell bringing me back to my present moment.

Be here now. Now. Now. Now. Breathe. Be here. Breathe. Be.

I listened to The Art of Mindful Living three years ago and it really helped me through a difficult time. It helped me become centered and to focus on the present, what's right in front of you. You Are Here is a very condensed version of Thich Nhat Hanh's writing, but it focuses on that very important point, being present in your everyday life. Being present honors your friends and family and helps you focus on them and less on your own worries. This book is great for those stressed, distracted or getting over a difficult time. The main theme of the book is best described in a single quote:

There is only a single moment in which we can be truly alive, and that is the present moment.

My favorite passages:

Breathe in, I know that I am breathing in
Breathe out, I know that I am breathing out
When we concentrate on our breathing, we become more relaxed, more focused

You are here for life, and if you are here for life, life will be here for you.

This is reality. An hour of mindfulness practice, even 15 minutes, is already enough to prove to you that mindfulness is possible. A beautiful sunset is something that exists; the song of a bird and the blue sky also exist. The paradise of forms and colors is always accessible

Descartes said "I think therefore I am." In light of Buddha's teaching, you might say, "I think therefore I am ...not here." You are lost in your thinking, so you are really not here. For you to truly be here, thinking has to stop. As you are practicing mindfulness of the breath. You stop thinking about the past, the future, your pain, your plans, and so forth, and you start to be really here, body and mind united.

Cultivate Solidarity. You are somebody; you are something. You are a positive factor for your family, for society, for the world. You have to recover yourself, to be yourself.

When people feel appreciated in this way--when they feel embraced by the mindful attention of another--then they will open and blossom like a flower. There is no doubt that you can make this happen through the energy of mindfulness. You can do it right away, even today, and you will see that the transformation it brings about is instantaneous. In order to love, we must be here, and then our presence will embrace the presence of the other person. Only then will they have the feeling of being loved. So you must recognize the presence of the other person with the energy of mindfulness, with the genuine presence of your body and mind in oneness.

Impermanence is the very heart of life. It makes life possible. Reject impermanence and you reject life. Impermanence makes everything possible...a river is in a constant process of transformation, and so are we.

The flower is full of all the elements of the cosmos--time, space, the sun, rain, even your consciousness--everything. But the flower is empty of one thing... a separate existence.

What you are looking for is already in you

If you don't want to suffer, if you don't want to be tormented by regret, the only solution is to live every minute you are given in a deep way. That's all there is to it. The only way to deal with insecurity fear and suffering is to live the present moment in a profound way. If you do that, you will have no regrets. ( )
