Navigate burnout, relieve stress, and reconnect with your inner joy with mindfulness and compassion practices inspired by Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh

In this fast-paced, complex world, how do we uphold our ideals without burning out? How can we remain open and vulnerable while also ensuring our safety and protection? Zen Buddhist monk Brother Phap Huu and journalist and leadership coach Jo Confino examine the modern diseases of busyness, overwhelm, and burnout, and how the power of mindfulness and compassion can help us when we run out of energy and inspiration to

  • Process suffering
  • Regain balance
  • Set healthy boundaries
  • Rest and nourish ourselves
  • Bring back more happiness and joy in our lives

Phap Huu and Jo Confino also offer ways to practice the authentic, loving, and courageous communication needed to break through and transform stressful situations in relationships at work and home. With examples drawn from real life on the spiritual road, they share candid stories, timeless wisdom, and the simple yet effective practices they follow daily for a dynamic and balanced way of life.
