"Calming the Fearful Mind: A Zen Response to Terrorism"
by Thich Nhat Hanh & Rachel Neumann

In Calming the Fearful Mind, Thich Nhat Hanh examines the roots of terrorism and fear, showing how both can be overcome through
compassion and an open heart. Teaching that we will only be safe when we acknowledge our real enemies, ignorance and violence, Nhat Hanh offers step-by-step instructions for calming the mind and looking deeply into our own misperceptions. He shows how compassion, deep listening, and mindful communication can conquer fear and terrorism. A valuable book for anyone who has felt possessed by anger and vengefulness, as well as those concerned about global terrorism, Calming the Fearful Mind shows how Nhat Hanh’s signature practices can help address the most challenging and emotions. All this in only 130 pages.
