Thích Nhất Hạnh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist who now lives in southwest France where he was in exile for many years. Born Nguyễn Xuân Bảo, Thích Nhất Hạnh joined a Zen (Vietnamese: Thiền) monastery at the age of 16, and studied Buddhism as a novitiate. Upon his ordination as a monk in 1949, he assumed the Dharma name Thích Nhất Hạnh. Thích is an honorary family name used by all Vietnamese monks and nuns, meaning that they are part of the Shakya (Shakyamuni Buddha) clan. He is often considered the most influential living figure in the lineage of Lâm Tế (Vietnamese Rinzai) Thiền, and perhaps also in Zen Buddhism as a whole.

Thich Nhat Hanh isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.

Breathing In, Breathing Out

This classic Plum Village song helps us to enjoy our breathing. When you breathe and visualize a flower, a dewdrop, a mountain, Mother Earth and their qualities like freshness, solidity, spaciousness, you also nourish those elements inside of you.
