if you can take just a few minutes for yourself to calm your body, your feelings, and your perceptions in this way, joy becomes possible. The joy of true quiet becomes a daily healing food

TNH, Silence – The Power of Quiet in a World Full of Noise

“Without fear, we are able to see more clearly our connections to others. Without fear, we have more room for understanding and compassion. Without fear, we are truly free.”


TNH, Fear Essential Wisdom for Getting Through the Storm

“Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It is a daily practice… No one can prevent you from being aware of each step you take or each breath in and breath out.”

 TNH, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

“We who have touched war have a duty to bring the truth about war to those who have not had a direct experience of it. We are the light at the tip of the candle. It is really hot, but it has the power of shining and illuminating. If we practice mindfulness, we will know how to look deeply into the nature of war and, with our insight, wake people up so that together we can avoid repeating the same horrors again and again.”

TNH, Love in Action: Writings on Nonviolent Social Change

“If we do not know how to take care of ourselves and to love ourselves, we cannot take care of the people we love. Loving oneself is the foundation for loving another person.”
