Under the Rose Apple Tree
In this sequel to A Pebble for Your Pocket, Zen teacher and poet Thich Nhat Hanh looks deeply at the issues that confront young people in today's society. Applying his unique insights to anger, family conflict, drug use, and sexual responsibility, he makes the ancient teachings of the Buddha relevant to adolescents by offering mindfulness practices as tools to help transform the suffering in their everyday lives. Ages 10-13.
"By living your life beautifully, you can nourish your sisters, brothers, and future generations. It is not through sacrificing your life that you help future generations, it is by living fully and happily." — Thich Nhat Hanh, from Under the Rose Apple Tree
