Peace Begins Here
Nobel Peace Prize nominee and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh demonstrates how a real peace process is based on spiritual not political strength. He offers the idea that peace in oneself is the basis of peace in the family, society, and the world. Based on an ongoing Buddhist retreat project for Israelis and Palestinians, this book suggests practical ways to handle strong emotions and misperceptions. If we bring peace into ourselves, we have a clearer understanding of ourselves and others. The book includes stories from individual Israelis and Palestinians trying to make sense of the conflict. Coming in November!
