About this item
The Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh has enjoyed a long and venerable career as a proponent of mindfulness, both in his many books and in his role as the spiritual leader of the Plum Village commune in France. PLANTING SEEDS is his first offering for children and their parents, caregivers, and teachers. In this plain-spoken book, Hanh discusses the philosophy of peace and conflict resolution, but more importantly provides earth-bound practices like walking meditation, traditional sitting meditation, and deep breathing to ground the philosophy in physical activity. A CD is included with a sing-along song about peace.
Based on the Plum Village retreat program through which families with children practice mindfulness, meditation and peaceful communication, a book-and-CD set outlines activities and curricula that can be incorporated into school and community settings to build supportive, mutually beneficial environments. Original.
