The old (or Classic) Doctor Who series built up a loyal American cult following, with regular conventions and other activitie ...more

What a beautiful and precious little book. Thich Nhat Hanh never ceases to amaze me that he can write so much meaning into his wonderful little books. The "mindfulness movements" that are the centre of this book are great low-stress exercises and definitely made me feel better when I was a little stressed. They don't take too long and are a great way to stop during the day and practice some mindful breathing. They will continue to be a part of my daily repertoire.

Love this cute little thing! And the ten mindful movements! Just tried them after a crazy day, coming home exhausted and stressed out. Instead of collapsing on the couch with a thousand thougts whirling in my head I put on the dvd, did the program and felt grounded, calm and more like myself afterwards. The movements are lovely actually, feels good and does good :)
This book is a gem! I always enjoy Nhat Hanh's work. This one feels especially magical because of the beautiful illustrations included. The ten mindful movements then are described carefully in the book, or you can watch them on the accompanying DVD. I just found them to be a great way to really wake up into the body, to quiet the mind, and start the day. :)

I really enjoyed this book. Although I practice yoga, I don't always have the time I would like, and this is a nice way to still check out and check in with myself. It has also proven a great way to engage my children. My toddler is especially willing to engage in the process with me, which is enjoyable for both of us. My son is a little more resistant, being 9, but he's capable of doing all of the poses, and when he's in the mood, it's a good way to relax together. The book is highly accessible ...more

10 mindful movements are described in detailed brevity. The illustrations are wonderful - very inclusive and welcoming. I'm hoping the book will be a great addition to my classroom library - the book as a whole is very kid-friendly. Will try the DVD with students soon.

I'll use this book and it's movements along with the dvd for teaching children and adults. Another way to bring attention to the body and mind and preparing for yoga and meditation.

I enjoyed the exercises. Very calming.

This is a reprint (with DVD!) of a book that came out a decade ago from Thay and the other fine folks at Plum Village (where I'd love to spend time some day) Now entering my 5th month of both a)being extremely mindful of my movements and b)losing my shit, I figured it'd be good for me. I can't do a lot of yoga poses without fear of dislocating a hip or two, but these are fairly simple and gentle, so I think I'll be cool. As long as I don't have to cross my legs, which is now forbidden. :(
Short book, but the 10 movements are well laid out and easy to follow. Worth the read.

A wonderful little book! This would be an excellent and thoughtful gift. It's just a little picture book/DVD with very easy exercises that bring your mind to the present and leave you with a long-lasting feeling of well-being.

Great ideas for movement practice with children or older folks. I may do some of these with my students during our "brain breaks."

Not really calibrated to the kind of exercise I like. It's a little too quiet. That's probably the point. Good for kids though.

“If we bring mindfulness into every aspect of our life, we cannot help but experience life’s miracles.   THE FIRST MIRACLE is to be present and able to touch deeply the miracles of life, like the blue sky, a flower, the smile of a child.   THE SECOND MIRACLE is to make the other—the sky, a flower, a child—present also. Then we have the opportunity to see each other deeply.   THE THIRD MIRACLE is to nourish the object of your attention with full awareness and appropriate attention.   THE FOURTH MIRACLE is to relieve the suffering of others.” 0 likes
