Rounding out the book, Nhat Hanh describes how mindfulness practice can go beyond benefiting the self. He shows how relations between people, between nations and between humans and the environment can be improved, thus providing a unique perspective to understanding social, political and environmental relations. With understanding, compassion and peace naturally flow. Whether it is for personal or interpersonal development, an aid to peacebuilding efforts or satisfying a need for greater environmental awareness, many regard Peace is Every Step as a reference manual–regularly referring to it for direction on their path to mindfulness and a better life for all.
