Thich Nhat Hanh Planners 2015, 2016

Fish in a Thich Nhat Hanh Planner featuring Honshin

Peace activist and teacher of mindfulness

Known in recent years as a teacher of Zen Buddhist meditation and mindfulness, Thich Nhat Hanh entered public consciousness as a peace activist. During the Vietnam War he was active in relief efforts by rebuilding schools and other grassroots efforts. Traveling to the US to study at Princeton and convince Martin Luther King to denounce the Vietnam war, he was asked within a few years to lecture at Cornell and Columbia.

These calendars feature quotes and original artwork – newly made each year by inspiring artists – that will inspire you to a more mindful life. Personally I am partial to the work of Adam Guan, though Nicholas Kirsten-Honshin also makes uplifting art.

His international efforts towards peace have made him an exile from his own country. In between travels he resides in the South of France, in Plum Village, the Dordogne where he has set up a retreat center. His books sell world wide and his speaking engagements are usually sold out well in advance.

This year (2014) he has unfortunately taken ill, not strange considering he was born in 1926.

The writings of Thich Nhat Hanh can be divided into two: there are popular Buddhism books which mainly talk about mindfulness and right living, but in his other books he goes into Theravada and Mahayana Buddhist teachings quite deeply. Thich Nhat Hanh is a major influence on Buddhism in the West.

Taoist symbols, ancient imagery and the gentle reflection of nature meet and merge in Nicholas Kirsten-Honshin’s artwork. The Thich Nhat Hanh datebook combines Honshin’s graceful paintings with the words of renowned Zen master, peace activist and author of over 60 books, Thich Nhat Hanh.

Make each moment
an occasion
to live deeply,
happily,
in peace.

A famous teacher in Zen is Thich Nhat Hanh. Like the Dalai Lama his teachings are on two levels: for non-Buddhists and Buddhists. The calendars here stay on the general spirituality path: inspiring quotes you will enjoy even if all you know about Buddhism is that it teaches how to live a good life.

You are not an observer,
you are a
participant
— Thich Nhat Hanh

The line of Thich Nhat Hanh calendars featuring the art by Nicholas Kirsten-Honshin is inspiring as usual. Featuring mindfulness quotes as well as art that takes it’s inspiration from archetypal images and spirituality the world over, this hardcover planner will help you develop mindfulness in your day to day life.

Learning how to live deeply in each moment of our daily life is our true practice.

This year the second Thich Nhat Hanh planner was designed by Adam Guan. I like the vibrant colors in his designs as well as the Asian style that comes through. I think his work is very suitable for a spiritual teacher who identifies most with Zen Buddhism, though really his Buddhism is inspired by the whole Buddhist tradition: from Theravada to Mahayana and from India to China.

Breathing in,
I know that I’m alive
Breathing out,
I smile to my aliveness
