Product description


''Loving, practical, and kind, The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down is a beautiful reminder of the rewards of living wisely.'' --Jack Kornfield, bestselling author of A Path with Heart and The Wise Heart

''This book is wonderful -- straight from the heart of a wise, kind teacher. Written simply and with gentle humor, it will help you find lasting happiness in a changing world.'' --Rick Hanson, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of Buddha's Brain and Hardwiring Happiness

''The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down proves what the Wise have always taught: As goes our attention, so comes our experience. The more we attend to living in the present moment, the richer becomes our experience of it . . . and of our own higher possibilities.'' --Guy Finley, bestselling author of The Secret of Letting Go

''Filled with gems of wisdom, this book will lift up your heart and enliven your spirit.'' --Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

''Full of insightful and practical advice -- and wonderfully portable, like a daily guidebook. I read it with great interest.'' --Bhante Gunaratana, author of Mindfulness in Plain English

''A book for our time -- filled with universal truths, beautifully expressed and lovingly illustrated. Every short paragraph is self-contained -- each its own seed sending roots into the deepest and most timeless wisdom. This is a book to keep close at hand.'' --Mark Williams, co-author of Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World

''Haemin Sunim has offered us a remarkable gift, a compendium of practical wisdom. It is accessible brilliance.'' --Allan Lokos, founder and guiding teacher, Community Meditation Center, NYC; author of Through the Flames, Patience, and Pocket Peace

''Full of wisdom and love, this is a book to keep as a dear companion. Hold it close. With its simple yet deeply profound messages, it will become a wise friend to turn to again and again. Haemin Sunim bridges East and West in his own life story and his writing. Truly this is a gem.'' --Vidyamala Burch, founder and codirector of Breathworks and coauthor of You Are Not Your Pain

''A remarkable guide to how to live a life of unpretentious authenticity and compassionate engagement. In Haemin Suni's brief essays and aphorisms, the insights of Buddhism have fully become the stuff of life itself.'' --Robert Buswell, Director of Buddhist Studies, UCLA

''Perfect for readers looking for a respite from busy lives and tumultuous times . . . Sunim evokes a calm assuredness in his philosophy, reminiscent of Lebanese-American poet Kahlil Gibran.'' --Publishers Weekly
