Bid on and receive the five bestselling handbooks of Thich Nhat Hanh's "How to Live" Boxed Set from Parallax, How to Sit, How to Eat, How to Walk, How to Love, and How to Relax, collected together for the first time in a beautifully designed gift box. The successful bidder will also receive the 2020 Thich Nhat Hanh Calligraphy Wall Calendar.
The "How to Live" boxed set is part of the Mindfulness Essentials Series by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. It will introduce beginners and remind seasoned practitioners of the essentials of mindfulness practice. The five books are pocket-sized with bold drawings by California artist Jason DeAntonis, each in a different highlight color. When the spines are lined up in this handsome gift box, the presentation is striking. The books provide explicit, simple directions for carrying out everyday activities with the focused awareness of mindful attention.
The Zen calligraphy of Thich Nhat Hanh that appears in the calendar is a joyful, fluid expression of his artistry and a timeless interpretation of Buddha's teachings. Thay uses the calligraphy as a meditation; his hand and the brush merge to become one. Each serene stroke conveys a sense of mindfulness, energy, and love. With his calligraphy, Thay invites you to breathe in, to bring your mind back to your body, and to be present in the moment.
Parallax Press is the premier publisher of Thich Nhat Hanh, offering works for beginners, experienced practitioners, children, and families. It also publishes other important authors on socially engaged Buddhism, including the Dalai Lama, Joanna Macy, and Sister Chan Khong.
"We are committed to making these teachings accessible to everyone and preserving them for future generations," says Parallax, its small and dedicated staff working together to create a workplace that mirrors the ideals of mindfulness and interbeing and that is communicated so beautifully in their books.
