Full Description

In No Mud, No Lotus, Thich Nhat Hanh teaches that the secret to happiness is to acknowledge and transform suffering, not to run away from it. Nhat Hanh shares how the practices of stopping, mindful breathing, and deep concentration can generate the energy of mindfulness within our daily lives.

No Mud, No Lotus introduces ways to be in touch with suffering without being overwhelmed by it. With his signature clarity and sense of joy, Thich Nhat Hanh helps us recognize the wonders inside us and around us that we tend to take for granted.

This book fell on my lap just when I needed it most. My life had changed suddenly and dramatically, and I was left wondering how to stay present with suffering while continuing to celebrate the precious gifts the universe continued to offer. For me, there is no greater medicine than a good book and a heartfelt yoga practice. This workshop is designed for those who love both the shared community of a book club and the self-healing nature of practicing yoga…a powerful combination!

“When you love someone, you have to offer that person the best you have. The best thing we can offer another person is our true presence.”

“Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between inner peace and peace on earth.”
– His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Amy Yapp
When Amy first tried a yoga class as a busy, young elementary school teacher many years ago, she decided it “wasn’t for her”. Ten years later and recovering from some serious health challenges, she decided to give “that yoga thing” another try. It was that second class after a decade hiatus that profoundly changed her life. She walked away standing taller, breathing better and knowing she had found something integral to her future. A born teacher, Amy couldn’t help sharing what she had experienced with others and began teaching yoga in 2003. Amy is honored and grateful to have completed her 200 hour teacher training with Shawn Shaw, Johnny Gillespie and Diana Hoscheit of Empowered Yoga . Always focusing on healing and prevention, Amy’s teaching has a strong foundation built upon core work, alignment-based poses and tension relieving breath work to restore and empower her students at their own pace. She believes in challenging herself and those around her, but is committed to listening to the body and making sure every class has a healthy dose of fun. Delight and connection are at the heart of every class.
