Our take

As several books in this collection explore relationships that do not turn out all that well, we thought it would only be appropriate to counterbalance them with a book that offers a more optimistic view of love. This wonderful little book offers a simply worded but nonetheless very sincere and honest reflection on what it means to love. Every line in it is infused with wisdom and offers insight not only into romantic love but other human relationships as well. If you are not yet familiar with the works of Thich Nhat Hanh and are weary of fake ‘spiritualism’, worry not, this is not that kind of book. Thich Nhat Hanh, who sadly passed away last January at the age of 96, was a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, one of the pioneering thinkers who brought Buddhism and mindfulness practices to the West. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to him as “an Apostle of peace and nonviolence”. “How to Love” is a very meditative and reflective read that offers universal wisdom. Whatever your creed is, you will likely find solace in Thich Nhat Hanh’s works.

Publisher's description

The most popular book in the "How To" series: advice, practices, and food for thought from a Zen Master on our most universal emotion.

The third book in the bestselling Mindfulness Essentials series, a back-to-basics collection from world-renowned Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh that introduces everyone to the essentials of mindfulness practice.

Nhat Hanh brings his signature clarity, compassion, and humor to the thorny question of how to love. He distills one of our strongest emotions down to four essentials: you can only love another when you feel true love for yourself; love is understanding; understanding brings compassion; deep listening and loving speech are key ways of showing our love.

Pocket-sized, with original two color illustrations by Jason DeAntonis, How to Love shows that when we feel closer to our loved ones, we are also more connected to the world as a whole. With sections on Love vs. Need, Being in Love, Reverence, Intimacy, Children and Family, Reconciling with Parents, and more, How to Love includes meditations you can do alone or with your partner to go deep inside and expand your own capacity to love.

Scientific studies indicate that meditation contributes tremendously to well-being, general health, and longevity. How to Love is a unique gift for those who want a comprehensive yet simple guide to understanding the many different kinds of love, along with meditative practices that can expand the understanding of and capacity for love, appropriate for those practicing in any spiritual tradition, whether seasoned practitioners or new to meditation.
