"We all need to Chop Wood and Carry Water". In Thich Nhat Hanh's latest teachings on how to use applied Buddhism in daily life, he looks at how we deal with workplace scenarios, handle home and family responsibilities, and endure traffic jams and other challenges of modern life. By carefully examining our everyday choices he encourages us to become a lotus in a muddy world by building mindful communities, learning about compassionate living, and come to an understanding of our inert "Buddha nature." Part-time Buddha aims at contributing to new models of leadership and doing business, but is also full of life-coaching advise and finding our true happiness"--

Discover a Practical Guide on Mindfulness This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to be present in situations of your daily life. What would really make you happier? Finding the right person or improving our relationship. Getting that promotion or building a stronger career. Money in the bank or the mortgage paid off. The list can go on. Yet even when we get the things we think we want, there is still the sensation that something is missing. The things we believe we need don't always help us in the way we expect. Sometimes we can be so busy managing life that we are not experiencing it or not experiencing ourselves and the world around us. When we are not aware of the natural elements of life through our own senses, we slip into autopilot. Mindfulness can help us to improve our physical and mental wellbeing by helping us to improve our awareness of ourselves and our surroundings. As a tradition, mindfulness has deep roots, stretching back to thousands of years into the timeless wisdom of the East. Scholars have detailed how mindfulness practices can be used as a way to wisdom while people from the world of sport, business and government today adopt mindfulness as part of their strategies for success. There is a simpler and practical way to learn to live through mindfulness. This is the practice of mindfulness in our daily lives. This requires no elaborate courses or travel or even setting aside a great amount of time outside of our ordinary activities. Doing so can bring fresh discoveries by turning simple tasks into activities from which we get new experiences and help us to learn to live with the flow of thoughts and events which we take for granted. Many beginners of mindfulness start with morning exercises for a few minutes which bring about deeper peace through greater awareness and many are very pleased with the results. But to learn how to live mindfully is to move into a way of life in which the same techniques can improve our lives in other areas. This is not as difficult as it sounds. In this book you will see how mindfulness can change the way we go through our days, do our work, build our relationships and develop an awareness of the world around us. Mindfulness itself is not a technique which involves any change. It is, in fact, the opposite, it is an approach used to deepen our own awareness. But that in itself promotes wellbeing and helps us to make changes in how we live. Mindfulness is something we can practice with increasing skill but it is not something which we can ever exhaust. Wherever we are or whatever we are doing, we can turn to mindfulness, whether we are beginners or more experienced. Here Is A Preview Of What You'll Learn...
