The Long Road Turns to Joy: A Guide to Walking Meditation
"Try it, your walking will never be the same!"
The Long Road Turns to Joy provides a practical and inspirational introduction to walking meditation. Thich Nhat Hanh teaches us to "walk not in order to arrive, walk just for walking." As we walk, we practice conscious breathing. This keeps our steps calm and peaceful, giving a deep sense of ease. Practicing this can bring a spirit of prayer into everyday life.

It's a wonderful little book. I do, however, wonder about something. The instructions for walking meditation include holding all senses awake and nursing a little smile on your face. But the pictures of walkers mostly show people with eyes closed and nothing on their face that is even vaguely reminiscent of a smile. I hope that a revised edition of the material shows people looking as if they are following the instructions. :o)
