'Walk With Me' follows a community of Zen Buddhist monks and nuns who have dedicated their lives to mastering the art of mindfulness with their world-famous teacher Thich Nhat Hanh. Filmed over three years in France and the USA, this intimate and meditative film travels deep inside a world that seems far from our everyday, and reveals how the monastics transform suffering in themselves and in others through their deep enquiry into the nature of existence, suffering, and their true selves.Written by
Utterly moving. Beautifully captured through sound and raw cinematography. I loved the ambiguity through the close-ups and snippets into seemingly very different lives and moments in time. This for me reflected the mysterious life we are all experiencing. Coming and going, glimpses of happiness and misery. All at different stages, young and old. Wealthy and poor.
Yet through all of it the calm reminder of our timeless awareness. The monks and master graciously sowing seeds of mindfulness and dharma (the eightfold path). I am beyond grateful and brought to tears at the raw beauty captured in this film. I was seeing & hearing it all; the bell, the trees, ants, sun, smiles, tears; as if for the first time. I can imagine this way of life at Plum Village and how this way is fertile for love and bliss to fruit and be shared through the practice.
I felt the touch and essence of being human and also the soft reminders into the understanding that everything is interconnected. Like the cloud becoming the rain and appearing in our tea cup.
Thank you to all who made this film possible. This is another seed in a world that is in great need of mindful caretakers.
