Parallax is a non-profit and independent press dedicated to supporting mindfulness in daily life. For every book you buy from our website or at events, we donate a book to a person incarcerated. Your purchase is a gift that sustains our work and offers refuge to someone who needs it most.
We’re grateful for our readers, wherever they find our books—at local bookstores, libraries, stores of all shapes and sizes, and other online retailers.
Parallax offers free shipping on all print book orders totaling twenty-five or more pretax dollars within the contiguous United States. Gift items and ebooks are not included. Orders will be shipped via media mail, premium service available at an additional cost.
All Parallax books are available directly from our website, as well as from all online retailers, and at bookstores large and small throughout the world. If you can’t find what you’re looking for at your local bookstore, please ask them to special order it and to carry our titles.
Our books are distributed to bookstores through Penguin Random House Publisher Services. Foreign editions of our books are often available through other publishers in most parts of the world, but we are unable to offer them for sale online.

Thich Nhat Hanh’s books are published in many languages worldwide. Unfortunately, we can’t help find individual books published by other publishers in other languages. If you know the title in the other language, you can search online to find the book publisher and ask directly about how to order a copy online or through a bookseller. Wikipedia Book Sources lets you check if a title is available in a library catalog, or find links to book sources in other languages.
