PEACE IS EVERY STEP
Meditation In Action: The Life and Work of Thich Nhat Hanh
Presented by Pamela Ayo Yetunde

This artful and soft-spoken documentary is an homage to a great peace activist, Buddhist, and author, Thich Nhat Hanh. He has had a profound impact on contemporary thinking and social action. His efforts to achieve an early end to the American war in Vietnam earned him a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and a forty-year exile from his homeland. His ongoing work teaching reconciliation and meditation with war veterans, widows, orphans, refugees, therapists, activists, and ecumenical groups has gained him a large following around the world. His quiet words and serene presence convey the intimate wisdom and compassion he is famous for. Thich Nhat Hanh tells us: “You get out of the meditation hall in order to help people. And that is called meditation in action. Deep looking is meditation, and deep acting is also meditation."
