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

The Long Road Turns to Joy provides a practical and inspirational introduction to walking meditation. Thich Nhat Hanh teaches us to "walk not in order to arrive, walk just for walking." As we walk, we practice conscious breathing. This keeps our steps calm and peaceful, giving a deep sense of ease. Practicing this can bring a spirit of prayer into everyday life.
