How to Walk is the fourth title in Parallax’s popular Mindfulness Essentials Series of how-to titles by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, introducing beginners and reminding seasoned practitioners of the essentials of mindfulness practice. Slow, concentrated walking while focusing on in- and out-breaths allows for a unique opportunity to be in the present. There is no need to arrive somewhere—each step is the arrival to concentration, joy, insight, and the momentary enlightenment of aliveness. When your foot touches the Earth with awareness, you make yourself alive and the Earth real, and you forget for one minute the searching, rushing, and longing that rob our daily lives of awareness and cause us to "sleepwalk" through life. Thich Nhat Hanh shares amusing stories of the impact mindful walking has on both the walker and those who notice him, and shows how mindful walking can be a technique for diminishing depression, recapturing wonder, and expressing gratitude. Pocket-sized, with original two color illustrations by Jason DeAntonis, How to Walk k is a unique gift for all ages, sharing a simple practice that can have a profound effect on practitioners.

When the image is distorted by our minds, it’s not the reality, and it causes lots of suffering." Relaxation is essential for accessing the tranquility and joy that lead to increased personal well-being. With sections on healing, relief from nonstop thinking, transforming unpleasant sounds, solitude, being peace, and more, How to Relax includes meditations you can do to help you achieve the benefits of relaxation no matter where you are.

Mindfulness is a technique of focused awareness that has its roots in Buddhism. It makes the present moment vividly tangible, heightens the senses, and increases our ability to think clearly and make positive life choices. The Art of Mindful Walking uses the concept of mindfulness to explore the activity of walking as an exercise for both body and mind. As an Anglican priest and former Priest-in-Ordinary to the Queen, a lecturer in Buddhism, and a devoted walker, Adam Ford is an inspiring guide with a refreshingly eclectic viewpoint. Contemplating the concept of purposeful walking, he applies the notion of mindfulness to walks ranging from a simple journey to work to a personal odyssey in the Australian outback. Exploring the idea of the walk as both medium and metaphor, and considering ideas of pilgrimage alongside the notion of the walk in literature, he draws on his personal experience of both spirituality and walking. Most of us have enjoyed moments of magic on a walk, from a simple feeling of wellbeing to a sense of awe at a special view. This book celebrates and enhances those moments: both for the hardened hiker and those who like to contemplate past walks from the comfort of their armchair.

Six million years ago, the evolving human brain existed only to instruct our bodies to move. In Mindful Walking, psychologist Hugh O'Donovan takes us back to this very basic connection between the brain and the body - movement -- and looks at how, by focussing on the simple act of moving, we can achieve inner peace and physical well-being. Bringing together the concept of mindfulness in movement along with the three paths of change for a better life - talking, meditation and walking - Mindful Walking shows us how we can better manage the internal and external distractions that clog our path to mental happiness while also improving our physical health. With simple exercises on how to incorporate mindful walking into our everyday lives: from walking up the stairs to walking in the park or climbing a mountain, Mindful Walking is for seasoned walkers, city amblers or people learning how to walk again after illness. Take your first steps on the journey to physical health and mental happiness.
