In May 1998, more than four hundred practitioners from around the world joined Thich Nhat Hanh's first 21-day retreat in north America in vermont to experience mindfulness. The path of Emancipation, which tanscribes this retreat, comprises an in-depth instruction in the 'Sixteen ways of breathing" front the Discourse on the full Awareness of Breathing. When Thich Nhat Hanh discovered this discourse, he said,"I felt I was the happiest person in the world."
