Walk With Me: A Journey Into Mindfulness Featuring Thich Nhat Hanh
Sun, October 29
Sun, October 29, 5:00 pm– 6:30 pm
Walk With Me (click the title for the trailer) is a documentary film that seeks to portray Thich Nhat Hanh's teachings and trace Plum Village monastics' journeys as mindfulness practitioners. According to the film's website:
With unprecedented access, ‘Walk With Me’ takes us deep inside the world-famous monastery of Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, and captures the life of a monastic community who have given up all their possessions for one common purpose – to practice the art of mindfulness. Filmed over three years, this visceral film is a meditation on a community determined to develop a deep sense of presence, not just for themselves but for all those they love. As the seasons come and go, the monastics’ inner journey is amplified by insights from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals, narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.
The movie is a meditative experience of the seasons of monastic life. Each screening listed below will be held only if a sufficient number of tickets are pre-sold for that screening.
