One of the few books focused completely on mindful walking and walking meditation. This revised edition of the best-selling title (nearly 80,000 copies sold to date) includes over 30 percent new material-including new walking meditation poems and practices-and provides a practical and inspirational introduction to this important practice. Written in Thich Nhat Hanh's clear and accessible style, Long Road Turns To Joy reminds us that we "walk not in order to arrive, but walk just for walking." Touching the earth with our feet is an opportunity to live in the here and now. Thich Nhat Hanh reminds us to enjoy each step and each breath in order to regain peace in difficult moments. The simple practice of walking with attention and mindfulness can bring the spirit of prayer into our everyday life. This book will appeal to anyone who would like to get more out of walking, from long-time meditators to those who are just looking for a way to make their walk around the block more meaningful.

I came across this book quite by accident, many years ago, while browsing the "Philosophy" section in a bookstore. In perusing it I discovered that I had been essentially doing this at times but unaware that I was. A simple (not to be confused with easy) technique that can be incorporated into everyday life. While it is walking for the sake of walking it can be utilized in "walking from A to B" This is the book that led me into deeper studies of Buddhism. ( )

nice and wise pocket guide, useful during walking ( )

At the entrance of the walking meditation path of a Zen temple in Vietnam, a large stone is carved with these words: "With each step, a breeze will rise." The breeze is the peace and joy that blow away the heat of sorrow. When you walk this way, you do it for yourself and for all beings.

A long title for such a short book. This book can easily be slipped into a pocket when you are going for a walk, as the cover is the size and shape of a postcard. Walking meditation is about being in the moment, not thinking about the past or future, and letting the contact of your feet with the Earth bring you peace. I read it on the train to work this morning. I will leave a trail of imaginary flowers on my way back to the station after work today, because out of all the themes for walking meditation in this book, my favourite is this one:

When the baby Buddha was born, he took seven steps, and a lotus flower appeared under each step. When you practice walking meditation, you can do the same. Visualize a lotus, a tulip or a gardenia blooming under each step the moment your foot touches the ground. If you practice beautifully like this, your friends will see fields of flowers everywhere you walk. ( )

This is a delightful little book, which brought me peace and calm just by reading it.

Thich Nhat Hanh is a wise Zen master, who lives in exile in France, in a community called Plum Village. He tells us we must learn to make "peaceful, anxiety-free" steps. Walking with mindfulness brings us "real happiness".

He teaches us how to walk noticing our breath and the number of steps we take whilst breathing in and out. If we take three steps while breathing in and four steps while breathing out, we can say to ourselves, for instance, "In, in, in" and "Out, out, out, out", one word for each step. At the same time we might imagine we're walking majestically like a tiger. We should keep a "half-smile" on our face while we walk. When we focus on the present moment in this way, all our worries disappear.

You can practise the walking meditation on the way to your car, or up and down the stairs. If possible, however, walk in a park or some other place where you're in contact with nature.

Hanh tells us that the Buddha imprinted peace and joy in the Earth with each step he took, When we walk as he did, we continue this work.

The book includes photos of Thich Nhat Hanh and others practising the walking meditation, some of the photos being from his community in Plum Village.

Towards the end of the book we are presented with examples of the author's poems. For example, the following little gem, entitled "Walking Peace":

Peace is the walk.
Happiness is the walk.

Walk for yourself
and you walk for everyone.

I highly recommend this peaceful little book. However, I must point out that it takes practice to coordinate one's breathing with one's steps and thus perform the meditation correctly. But practice makes perfect. ( )
