Ep #10: My Teacher Thich Nhat Hanh

Every ten episodes, Diane is going to share about teachers who have made a mark on her life.

Today, we delve deep into Diane's relationship with her profound mentor, the renowned Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh, fondly known as Thay (pronounced "tie").  Discover how a serendipitous encounter with a book and a handwritten note brought Diane into the world of Thich Nhat Hanh's teachings and how they transformed her life.

From Thich Nhat Hanh's emphasis on mindfulness, to his focus on nourishing the soul, Diane shares personal anecdotes of her journey, attending spiritual retreats, and receiving her Dharma name during an enlightening retreat. Pull up a seat as Diane unravels the philosophical mysteries of Thich Nhat Hanh's books, his stance on engaged Buddhism, his intriguing exile story, and his impact on the world.

Join us on this introspective adventure to understand not just the teachings of a spiritual leader but also the personal influence he had on your host. You are tuned into the Aim From the Heart Podcast, where heartfelt journeys meet spiritual, intentional manifestation.
