I am so glad my library had I copy of this book/cd/dvd. I really wanted to "check it out" and could not be made to pay retail price for this slim volume. I really like the content, but I would have felt ripped off had I purchased it. The DVD is 30 minutes of Hanh speaking in a short interview and briefly addressing a "class". Nothing therein that one cannot find in the text or in other books by this esteemed author. The CD features nearly 80 minutes of meditation guiding I feel was also a waste...more

Recommends it for: Anyone with an open mind and willingness to learn.
This is a wonderful book for anyone who wishes to practice a basic form of meditation. The book comes with a DVD which introduces you to Thich Nhat Hanh. Hanh explains some of the principals of Walking Meditation. His gentle voice and sense of humor immediately put me at ease.
This edition also comes with an audio CD that will lead the listener through several sessions of Walking Meditation of differing levels and lengths. The person doing the guided CD lessons is a woman with a clear, pleasan...more

This book comes with a CD and a DVD. This is Thich Nhat Hanh's teachings as filtered through Nguyen Anh-Huong. Her voice is the one that directs you through the guided meditations. She has a comforting voice, but it takes some getting used to.

The text is relatively short and to the point, but useful. Not as engaging as Thich Nhat Hanh's direct writings on walking meditation, but she includes direct quotations from him, in the book.

I have not watched the DVD yet, but it includes footage of Thic...more

Meh. I'm not really sure how to rate this book. I've read most of what's in here elsewhere, so I think I was expecting more. On the other hand, perhaps the beauty of the book and the practice it advocates lies in its simplicity. I wouldn't want to discourage someone from reading it if what they're looking for is a simple way to escape daily stress. Even if you are wary of meditation, learning to relax and just breathe is a valuable lesson.

This book would make a great tablebook. but besides that it contains a great intro to walking meditation. it comes with a dvd and cd. The cd contains guided meditions and the dvd has a video of a much younger Thay teaching a group of people (with several zen practitioners wearing their rakusu) about walking meditation.
Karin
I liked this very much. It's short, but really, it should be. Got it for my Kindle, so I can read it pretty much whenever I need to.

Patty Hankins

I don't have any idea about walking meditation. I am impressed. This is a very good book for meditation.

If you have trouble sitting still to meditate, learn how to do walking meditation. Most excellent!
