Walk With Me is a film that explores the monastic community around Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings.
I first came across Thich Nhat Hanh in Sister Chan Khong’s Learning True Love: Practicing Buddhism in a Time of War. The book humbly delved into their efforts for peace during the Vietnam War, their exile to France and their lifelong mindfulness and peace-building activities.
We’re pretty lucky in Southern California to have Deer Park Monastery in our backyard. You can stop by for a Day of Mindfulness or retreat throughout the year. But mindfulness doesn’t even need a drive to a Buddhist monastery. You can practice right now. You don’t have to go anywhere, do anything, be anyone but yourself.
We’re hosting the ONLY screening in South Orange County- at the Aliso Viejo Edwards 20 on Thursday, September 21st at 7:30 PM. The film is quite beautifully done and watching it on the big screen will be a unique experience.
Tickets are $14 (which is set by Edwards, and I don’t make anything for being a Movie Captain). We have to sell at least 50 tickets before the theater can be reserved, so I hope you will consider buying your ticket and watching this important film.
Here’s the link for tickets.
Here’s the trailer.
“In our daily lives, we may see the people around us, but if we lack mindfulness, they are just phantoms, not real people, and we ourselves are also ghosts. Practicing mindfulness enables us to become a real person. When we are a real person, we see real people around us, and life is present in all its richness.” -Thich Nhat Hanh
