  • The death of John Shields

    A beautiful story of a man who chose to end his life on his own terms and of those who chose to share his final day with him.

    Book: "The Miracle of Mindfulness"
    Author: Thich Nhat Hanh, translated by Mobi Ho


    This is a fantastic book to introduce beginners into the practice of meditation. Thich Nhat Hanh writes very beautifully, and uses moments from everyday life in order to pinpoint opportunities for meditation practice. From a letter to a friend about how washing the dishes is the most important thing he's ever done in his life, to a very down-to-earth, almost clinical description of the process of breathing during mediation, this short, well-written book is a perfect introduction to basic buddhist practice and the science of mind-control and meditation. I highly recommend it.

    On a side note, most books by Thich Nhat Hanh are short, well-written, and strikingly clear. I recommend you read other books of his as well, notably the "Heart Sutra".

    I only hope for a peaceful and painless passing for him. He has been a tremendous influence in my life.

    Sorry about the unexpected downtime and the scary "domain parking" page. Silly me forgot to pay the registration bill (you have to renew domain names every couple of years). Luckily good ol' @Federica messaged me, the ever-absentee admin, and said... "uh.... chief.... you done goofed".

    Back to business as usual :)
