How to Walk

(Book #4 in the Mindfulness Essentials series)

$9.95

Book Overview: How to Walk

An introduction to mindful walking, which can be done anywhere, at any time--even on a commute to work or school.

The fourth book in the bestselling Mindfulness Essentials series, a back-to-basics collection from world-renowned Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh that introduces everyone to the essentials of mindfulness practice.

Slow, concentrated walking while focusing on in- and out-breaths allows for a unique opportunity to be in the present. There is no need to arrive somewhere--each step is the arrival to concentration, joy, insight, and the momentary enlightenment of aliveness. When your foot touches the Earth with awareness, you make yourself alive and the Earth real, and you forget for one minute the searching, rushing, and longing that rob our daily lives of awareness and cause us to "sleepwalk" through life.

Thich Nhat Hanh shares amusing stories of the impact mindful walking has on both the walker and those who notice him, and shows how mindful walking can be a technique for diminishing depression, recapturing wonder, and expressing gratitude. Pocket-sized, with original two color illustrations by Jason DeAntonis, How to Walk is a unique gift for all ages, sharing a simple practice that can have a profound effect on practitioners.

"The monk who taught the world mindfulness."
-- TIME

"Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal inner peace and peace on earth."
-- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

"Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thich Nhat Hanh, globally recognized as a spiritual leader, Zen Master, and vocal peace activist, has dedicated his life to transforming suffering and promoting peace in individuals, communities, and the world. Born in Vietnam in 1926, he became a monk at the early age of 16, subsequently gaining recognition for his key role in initiating the "Engaged Buddhism" movement, merging traditional practices with modern societal and humanitarian concerns. Nhat Hanh's extensive body of work includes over 100 books on mindfulness, meditation, and Buddhism, with notable works such as "The Miracle of Mindfulness" and "Peace Is Every Step." His teachings emphasize the intricate interconnectedness of all life, offering transformative perspectives on dealing with anger, fostering compassion, and nurturing peaceful relationships. His compelling insights have significantly influenced the field of mindfulness in the West, earning him the title "The Father of Mindfulness." Beyond his writings, Thich Nhat Hanh founded the Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism in France, the epicenter of his humanitarian work. Known for his active opposition to the Vietnam War, he has strived for peaceful reconciliation and conflict resolution, even getting nominated by Martin Luther King Jr. for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. Today, he remains a luminary figure, spreading insightful wisdom central to personal growth and universal peace.
