Oprah Winfrey interviews the Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, in a meeting, which will bring forward interesting queries: how to apply Buddhism to everyday modern situations, how to improve our way of relating with others and even the biography of Thich Nhat Hanh himself. Indeed, such a story not only will prove to move even the hardest of souls, but will open our view to strength and a way of living worth following.
Ante la presencia de un sentimiento doloroso en nuestro interior tendemos a buscar la forma de taparlo y dejarlo de lado, pero debemos conectar con su energía para llegar a la compasión y al alivio. Las emociones vienen y van, y no son las que determinan lo que somos, somos nosotros los que determinamos lo que son.

Sadhguru speaks about fear and how to overcome it. Rather than being an absolute reality, fear only exists in our mind, as its production. Thus, only by realising that fear does not exist by itself can one develop the mental discipline to overcome it.
Thich Nhat Hanh speaks about a new programme which will bring a new future: conscious teaching. Teachers and education institutions will be able to apply this system which, based upon Buddhist foundations of dharma but applied in a secular way, will enable teachers and students alike to establish a greater connection with both themselves and their environment, favouring a community structure in class which will not only help them to live better with fellow human beings, but ultimately helping them to reaching their deepest core.
A new future
