 May - Walk With Me: A Journey into Mindfulness2017, 1 hr 33 mins

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.

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.

Official Selection at the SXSW Film Festival.

The Community Resiliency programs are co-sponsored by Stevenson Grange #121 and Stevenson Community Library. For program information, please call Mary Repar at (360) 726-7052 or e-mail repar@saw.net.
