Mindfulness Bell Magazine

The Mindfulness Bell is a journal of the art of mindful living, published three times a year by the Community of Mindful Living in the USA. It is an inspiration and teaching resource for those practicing mindfulness in daily life.

Each issue includes a teaching by Thich Nhat Hanh, plus  essays, stories, and teachings by monastic and lay practitioners. Illustrated with photos, artwork, and poems, each issue reflects the deepening mindfulness practice of the worldwide Sangha.
