Parallax Press is a nonprofit publisher, founded and inspired by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. We publish books on mindfulness in daily life and are committed to making these teachings accessible to everyone and preserving them for future generations. We do this work to alleviate suffering and contribute to a more just and joyful world.
Parallax was founded in 1986, with the publication of Thich Nhat Hanh’s book Being Peace. We have over 125 active titles in print, and our bestselling books have sold over 100,000 copies. Our books are available in 35 languages and in countries around the world. Parallax’s mission is to publish beautiful, well-crafted books that nourish happiness and show the connection between the inner and outer work for peace and justice. As a nonprofit publisher, we are committed to modeling a more sustainable and humane way of doing business. We offer an active free books program for people who are incarcerated. We also structure in daily meditation and mindfulness practices as part of the working day.
