A Bliss Break with Thich Nhat Hanh


Gift yourself bliss in less than 2 minutes. Take a break from whatever it is you’re doing. Find a comfortable chair, cushion or rug to sit on and watch this brief meditation. Breathe easily and freely focusing on your in-breaths and out-breaths. Absorb Thay’s words and the sound of the bell with each inhale, release all the tensions in your body with each exhale.


To meditate does not mean to fight with a problem
To meditate means to observe

Your smile proves it
It proves that you are being gentle with yourself

That the sun of awareness is shining in you
That you have control of your situation

You are yourself
And you have acquired some peace.

I purchased your book, Mindful Eating, mindful living and it has become my goal for living a truly mindful life. I am retired and I don't plan anything in the morning as I spend that time journaling, meditating and reading. People ask me what are you doing now and I ask I am working on myself that is my job now. I get lots of mixed reactions when I tell them that. Thank you for writing this book.

Dear Judi, I'm so glad to hear you are finding Savor a helpful mindful living companion. Working on ourselves is a noble and meaningful endeavor – especially in this hectic and externally driven world. Journaling, meditating, appreciating the wonders in nature, and reading are all wonderful ways to get in touch with ourselves. As Thay says, Peace in oneself, Peace in the world.

A lotus for you,
