There are people who say that mindfulness is just one thing -breathing in and breathing out. They are right. With mindful breathing, we’re more present for ourselves and for the world and we can live deeply every moment of our daily life.”
-Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, from the Foreword
Glen Schneider has developed a series of simple practices to help us cultivate happiness and fulfillment in the course of our daily lives. Happiness is far more than a positive feeling that comes and goes, happiness is wired into the physiology of our brains. It is a skill we can all develop through cultivating mindfulness and concentration. In Ten Breaths to Happiness the author presents a series of simple practices and guided meditations that help rewire your neural pathways to experience deeper fulfillment and peace.
Glen Schneider is a Dharma teacher ordained by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and founder of the Buckeye Sangha. He lives in Berkeley, California, where he is a naturalist and gardener.
