The Mindfulness Bell


The Mindfulness Bell is a journal of the art of mindful living. It is an inspiration and teaching resource for those practicing mindfulness in daily life. Each issue features a recent teaching by our teacher, Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.

Also included are stories and teachings by teachers and students in this lineage, based on the author’s direct experience of transformation through the practice of mindfulness. Instead of giving academic or intellectual views, the teachings emphasize simple and successful ways to transform the difficulties and limitations in our lives so that each day becomes an experience of peace, happiness, and freedom.

In the current issue (Summer 2017):

  • Thich Nhat Hanh shows how to embrace anger with mindfulness, then uses the language of love to restore harmony in relationships.
  • Victoria Rosas Peribán reflects on the Forest of Interbeing project, which has planted over 3,000 trees in Mexico.
  • Founders of MorningSun Mindfulness Center in the United States, where several Wake Up friends currently reside, discuss the delights and struggles of creating a residential practice center.
  • Brother Phap Luu and Katherine Weare share about the birth of the book, Happy Teachers Change the World: A Guide for Cultivating Mindfulness in Education.
  • Seasoned activists tell how they avoid overwhelm and stay balanced while working to make a better world.

For our Wake Up friends with low income or facing financial hardship, low-cost digital and low-cost print options are available here.
