Presented in a beautiful and uniquely usable way the gift set includes a travel size altar with a guided meditation; a CD with Thich Nhat Hanh's step-by-step instruction; and a booklet with biographical information about the author and artist as well as background on mindfulness practice.

Calm Ease Smile Breathe helps you create your own sacred space wherever you need it most. The results can lead to letting go of our worries and experiencing more deeply the life around us and our own aliveness in the present moment.
