Product description


The simple practice of walking with attention and mindfulness can bring a spirit of prayer into everyday life. This book concentrates on this form of meditation, whilst walking and taking in the sights and atmosphere. It instructs in "walking not in order to arrive, walking just for walking".

From the Publisher

"Walking just for 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." —Thich Nhat Hanh

In this beautiful, pocket-sized book, Thich Nhat Hanh teaches his well-known method of "walking just for walking." Learn to enjoy each step, each breath, the blue sky, and the many sights and fragrances along the path. In his inspiring commentary, Thich Nhat Hanh reveals how this simple practice has helped him regain peace and serenity in difficult moments.

Written in the clear, accessible style for which Thich Nhat Hanh’s work has become well-known, The Long Road Turns to Joy offers an important practice that brings a spirit of gentle mindfulness into our everyday lives. Includes photos of walking meditation from around the world.

"Try it, your walking will never be the same!" —Yoga Journal
