Front Cover
Parallax Press, Nov 15, 2004 - Religion - 160 pages
In Peace Begins Here, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh demonstrates how a real peace process is based on spiritual, not political, strength. He offers the idea that peace in oneself is the basis of peace in the family, society, and the world.

Based on an ongoing Buddhist retreat project for Israelis and Palestinians, this book suggests practical ways to handle our strong emotions and misperceptions. If we bring peace into ourselves we have a clearer understanding of ourselves as well as others.
