WATCH A MASTER OF MIND­FUL­NESS AT WORK

Walk with Me might sound like an Aaron Sorkin char­ac­ter de­mand­ing a pede­con­fer­ence, but this doc­u­men­tary is ac­tu­ally quite the op­po­site (and all the di­a­logue in the film is more or less con­densed into the trailer). It’s an 88-minute so­journ at Plum Vil­lage, the med­i­ta­tion cen­tre in south­west France run by Viet­namese Zen Bud­dhist monk Thích Nhát Hanh, one of the lead­ing pro­po­nents of mind­ful­ness, who teaches his fol­low­ers to ap­pre­ci­ate the here and now.

Or as he more monkily puts it: “The past is no longer there. The fu­ture is not yet there. There’s only the present mo­ment.” —
