The Miracle of Mindfulness is a beautifully personal, simple, and clearly written book by the Vietnamese Zen Master, Tich Nhat Hahn. In it he weaves personal stories, commentary, and instruction together in an easily accessible way, providing a virtual handbook to meditation. He argues that one does not have to sit in full lotus to meditate, though zazen (sitting meditation) certainly has it's placed and shouldn't simply be discarded. But, through the miracle that is mindfulness, a person can transform every action and moment of their life into a form of meditation.
