The secret to happiness is to acknowledge and transform suffering, not to run away from it. In No Mud, No Lotus, Thich Nhat Hanh offers practices and inspiration transforming suffering and finding true joy. Thich Nhat Hanh acknowledges that because suffering can feel so bad, we try to run away from it or cover it up by consuming. We find something to eat or turn on the television. But unless we’re able to face our suffering, we can’t be present and available to life, and happiness will continue to elude us. Nhat Hanh shares how the practices of stopping, mindful breathing, and deep concentration can generate the energy of mindfulness within our daily lives. With that energy, we can embrace pain and calm it down, instantly bringing a measure of freedom and a clearer mind. No Mud, No Lotus introduces ways to be in touch with suffering without being overwhelmed by it. "When we know how to suffer," Nhat Hanh says, "we suffer much, much less." With his signature clarity and sense of joy, Thich Nhat Hanh helps us recognize the wonders inside us and around us that we tend to take for granted and teaches us the art of happiness.

"No Mud, No Lotus" is a humorous but gritty journey out of substance addiction and sexual trauma and into Sacred Sex and Neo Tantra! It's the raw, honest, and intimate biography of a Maya who stars in a controversial documentary film about Tantra,"Sex Magic, Manifesting Maya." This isn't the usual life story of a "Sacred Sexual, Tantric practitioner," filled with New Age lingo and promises of ecstatic sexual bliss. Rather, it's the genuine, real account of a regular girl who seeks emotional and psychological healing from a past of sexual trauma, abuse, and addictions. "No Mud, No Lotus" chronicles Maya's determined journey to find depth and meaning within love, sex and relationships. It also tells the story of "Father Ron" who believes it's Maya's destiny to stand at his side as a "Sacred sexual healer," and invites Maya to travel the world with him as his mate and to teach "Tantra." Together, they go to places where the lines between black and white, shadow and light, the sacred and the profane become maddeningly unclear and contradictory. But Maya's past already endowed her with strength and a critical eye- assets she didn't know she had- which serve as her beacon of truth as she negotiates the darkened maze that is Neo Tantra as practiced in sexually over-charged New Age circles.

The Shadow is not bad – in fact it is the source of our creativity and power – but until we bring it into the light this power will remain untapped and our full potential unreached. Using practical exercises sourced from lucid dreaming and dream-work, Tibetan Buddhism and mindfulness meditation, this book explores how to: • Transform the dark and light shadow side • Meet the shadow through your dreams • Unlock your creativity • Transform Nightmares through lucid dreaming • Manifest your hidden potential • Make friends with fear & anxiety • Decrease stress through Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep This book will show you how to fearlessly embrace your shadow side in both your dreams and daily life, thereby manifesting the awakened power of your full potential.

We can’t heal with our minds alone. Thinking can be something productive and creative, but without integrating body and mind, much of our thinking is useless and unproductive. In Peace of Mind, Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh reminds us that integrating body and mind is the only way to be fully alive in each moment, without getting lost in our thoughts while walking, cooking, driving, and going about our everyday lives. Only by cultivating a mindful body and an embodied mind can we be fully alive. Bringing together ancient wisdom and contemporary thinking, Thich Nhat Hanh says it's like hardware and software—if you don't have both, you can't do anything. Peace of Mind provides a foundation for beginning mindfulness practices and understanding the principles of mind/body awareness. By learning how our physical body and mind are inseparable in creating our own perceptions and experiences we can begin to trust and nourish our ability to create well-being.
