There are 3 cds in this set.

I was not overly impressed with Touching the Earth and gave it only 3 stars.

Teachings on Love, however, blew me away. Definitely worth 5 stars! Truly, if more people were to approach their relationships with the kind of compassion and honesty that Thich Nhat Hanh encourages, fewer people would ever get married. To be this transparent and vulnerable requires a great deal from both people in the relationship and love, true love whether romantic or platonic, rarely ascend so high.

The Art of Mindful Living is also very good. Anyone familiar with Thich Nhat Hanh's teachings has probably heard this all before but hearing a truth reiterated doesn't lessen the merit of the teaching.

Over all, a 4 star collection.
