Being In the Here and Now

Thich Nhat Hahn

Tune in as Thich Nhat Hanh shares the power of mindfulness and compassion. This extraordinary soul has carried the message of acceptance, love and non-violence across the globe throughout his life. In this interview with Oprah he speaks of his childhood, being exiled from his own country, and founding the Plum Village monastery in the south of France. In the final segment he shares a simple yet profound message of bringing mindfulness into our daily relationships. Enjoy.
