The Monks and Me
How 40 Days at Thich Nhat Hanh's French Monastery Guided Me HomeBook - 2012
With the death of her father, Paterson felt as if she had lost her home. Her response was to embark on a pilgrimage to Plum Village, the retreat of Nobel Prize-nominated Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh. This chronicle of her 40-day sojourn offers readers the 40 Buddhist precepts that she learned. The primary theme is the necessity of discovering how to "take refuge" or find a permanent home within ourselves-- without taking oneself too seriously.
