New 2018 Calendar — The Mindful Art of Thich Nhat Hanh
The Zen calligraphy of Thich Nhat Hanh – known affectionately as Thay (teacher) – is a joyful, fluid expression of his artistry and a timeless interpretation of Buddha’s teachings. Thay uses the calligraphy as a meditation to be in the present moment; his hand and the brush merge to become one. Each serene stroke conveys a sense of mindfulness, energy, and love. With his calligraphy, Thay invites you to breathe in, to bring your mind back to your body, and to be present to experience the many wonders in this moment.
Thich Nhat Hanh has dedicated his life to peace through the practice of mindful living. He teaches that only through living in the present moment can we approach peacefulness – in ourselves and in the world. Thay has written more than 85 poems and prose pieces as well as numerous books. He lives in Plum Village in France, a Buddhist community in exile that he founded in 1982, where he continues to share his wisdom with the world.
