The Long Road Turns to Joy, $9.95
"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.

Anyone Can Do It
Walking meditation is meditation while walking. We walk slowly, in a relaxed way, keeping a light smile on our lips. When we practice this way, we feel deeply at ease, and our steps are those of the most secure person on Earth. All our sorrows and anxieties drop away, and peace and joy fill our heart. Anyone can do it. It only takes a little time, a little mindfulness, and the wish to be happy.
Everything Depends on Your Steps
The seed of mindfulness is in us, but we usually forget to water it. We think that happiness is possible only in the future-when we get a house, a car, a Ph.D. We struggle in our mind and body, and we don't touch the peace and joy that are available right now-the blue sky, the green leaves, the eyes of our beloved. What is most important? Many people have passed exams and bought houses and cars, and yet they are still unhappy. What is most important in life is to find peace and to share it with others.To have peace, you can begin by walking peacefully. Everything depends on your steps.
