Thich Nhat Hanh is the father of Buddhism in the West, and I was expecting this audio book to detail his life and his teachings. Unfortunately, it didn’t hit the mark for me.
The first section, which I was hoping would explore Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings, mostly focused on the author’s journey into Buddhism, rather than Buddhism and mindfulness itself.
The soundscape, a ‘relaxing’ mindfulness journey consisted of a few bells, a bit of chanting, Benedict Cumberbatch narrating a few quotes and lots of silence.
It was all very pleasant for free, but I’m sure I’d feel different if I’d paid the cover price.
