As heard on NPR's All Things Considered --

A multimillion-copy bestselling book of spiritual wisdom about the importance of slowing down in our fast-paced world

"Is it the world that's busy, or is it my mind?"

The world moves fast, but that doesn't mean we have to. In this bestselling mindfulness guide--it has sold more than three million copies in Korea, where it was a #1 bestseller for forty-one weeks and received multiple Best Book of the Year awards, and it's being published in more than 25 countries--Haemin Sunim (which means "spontaneous wisdom"), a renowned Buddhist meditation teacher born in Korea and educated in the United States, illuminates a path to inner peace and balance amid the overwhelming demands of everyday life.

By offering guideposts to well-being and happiness in eight areas--including relationships, love, and spirituality--Haemin Sunim emphasizes the importance of forging a deeper connection with others and being compassionate and forgiving toward ourselves. The more than twenty full-color illustrations that accompany his teachings serve as calming visual interludes, encouraging us to notice that when you slow down, the world slows down with you.
