Revered Zen Buddhist teacher and best-selling author Thich Nhat Hanh explores the connection between psychology, neuroscience, and meditation
In his previous book Understanding Our Mind, Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh explored Buddhist psychology and its applications in everyday life. Here, he continues that study by asking, “Is free will possible?” as he examines how the mind functions and how we can work with it to cultivate more freedom and understanding, be in closer touch with reality, and create the conditions for our own happiness.

Drawing stories from the life of the Buddha and Hanh's own experiences, Buddha Mind, Buddha Body addresses such topics as:
• The importance of creativity and visualization in a mediation practice
• Basic Buddhist meditation practices such as sitting and walking meditation
• The importance of brotherhood and sisterhood in everyday life

Delivered in Hahn’s inimitable light, clear, and often humorous style, Buddha Mind, Buddha Body will appeal to those new and familiar with Buddhist psychology.
