Feature: How to Fight by Thích Nhất Hạnh


Listen below or through your favorite podcast streaming app such as Apple Podcasts, Soundcloud, YouTube, or Google Play.

Our feature today is How to Fight by Thích Nhất Hạnh. It is a tiny book about the miriad ways we can practice compassionate mindfulness when ALL we feel compelled to do is a pull a HULK. We can do this.

The two of us banter on about:

  • How compassionate listening can transform an interaction.

  • The art of apologizing and all of it’s passive aggressive half steps.

  • How we can channel our inner tree to stay… well, rooted.

  • Internal knots and how to tend to them.

  • 3 sentences for when we are suffering.

  • All the ways we can start over when we’re struggling.
