If we want societal change to last, we must collectively transform. The 4th Edition of Interbeing is a blueprint for long-term global change, containing Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's fourteen Buddhist guidelines for living consciously and ethically in the modern world. Originally formulated under the fiery pressures of the Vietnam War, Interbeing is a call to collective awakening and a guidebook for getting there. The Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings are a radical expression of Buddhist ethics and morality that offer essential insights for existing mindfully, and creating change that lasts.⠀
