Contents and Overview
This course begins by delving into mindfulness in relationships so you can use every relationship as a means to explore compassion in deep and meaningful ways.
You’ll uncover the ways in which you’ve been hurt by loved ones, and how your actions have hurt them. This will lead you to the concept of interbeing so you can see others for who they really are, and you’ll develop an understanding that you’re connected to everyone.
As you deepen your mindfulness practice, you’ll uncover how to look beyond notions that create suffering. As a result, you’ll liberate yourself from seeing the world as being separate from you, and you’ll recognize that everything is part of a greater whole.
Finally, you’ll discover that what you do, say, and consume can have consequences for loved ones and yourself. Ultimately, you’ll develop behaviors that promote peace and compassion for all.
By accessing the Four Nutriments, an important Buddhist teaching, you’ll even start to explore the richness of life through mindfulness and the Three Doors of Liberation.
Once you complete this course, you’ll have the tools to fully understand how mindfulness can improve your life in many ways, from your connection to your inner Self, to your relationships with others.
You’ll have the ability to bring about positive changes in the way you speak and behave daily, thereby enhancing peace and compassion everywhere you go.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who is interested in learning Buddhist teachings from a master like Thich Nhat Hanh
- Anyone who wishes to expand their mindfulness practice
- Anyone who hopes to spread love and compassion

Sounds True was founded in 1985 by Tami Simon with a clear mission: to disseminate spiritual wisdom. Since starting out as a project with one woman and her tape recorder, we have grown into a multimedia publishing company with more than 80 employees, a library of more than 600 titles featuring some of the leading teachers and visionaries of our time, and an ever-expanding family of customers from across the world. In more than two decades of growth, change, and evolution, Sounds True has maintained its focus on its overriding purpose, as summed up in our Vision Statement:
Sounds True exists to inspire, support, and serve personal transformation and spiritual awakening.
Sounds True is an independent multimedia publishing company that embraces the world's major spiritual traditions, as well as the arts and humanities, embodied by the leading authors, teachers, and visionary artists of our time. Our approach to publishing is not dependent on a single format or technology—rather, we strive with every title to preserve the essential "living wisdom" of the author, artist, or spiritual teacher. It is our goal to create products that not only provide information to a reader or listener, but that also embody the essential quality of a wisdom transmission between a teacher and a student.
Throughout the years, Sounds True has developed a guiding philosophy that we call "multiple bottom lines." Our dedication to this principle is embodied in our Mission Statement:
The mission of Sounds True is to find teachers and artists who serve as a gateway to spiritual awakening and to produce, publish, and distribute their work with beauty, intelligence, and integrity. We treat our authors, vendors, and partners in the same way we would want to be treated. We work flexibly and efficiently together to create a cooperative, loving environment that honors respectful authenticity and individual growth. We maintain a healthy level of profitability so that we are an independent and sustainable employee-owned organization.
The three essential bottom lines for Sounds True are the integrity of our purpose, the well-being of our people, and the maintaining of healthy profits. All three of these priorities are important in the decisions we make as a company. It is our conviction that each of these bottom lines must be healthy for the company to prosper as a whole.
In our history as a publisher, Sounds True has produced a wide variety of formats in order to fulfill our goal of disseminating spiritual wisdom.
