Chapter 1                          What Is Self?


Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hanh wrote about the practice he called the Island of Self:

When the Buddha was eighty years old and knew, he wasn’t going to live much longer, he offered the practice of the “Island of Self” to his students. He said that there is a safe island within yourself that you can go back to every time you feel afraid, unstable, or in despair. Go home to the island of self, inside of you and take refuge there and you will be safe. The island of self is just one breath away. With the practice of mindful breathing or mindful walking, we can come home to our island straight away.
