Each of My Steps is a Prayer

A DVD experience of the Viet Nam pilgrimage with Thich Nhat Hanh that occurred earlier this year is now available. Using videomaking skills developed making educational pieces on Native American reservations, I did my best to express the power, lessons and beauty of the trip; at least as I experienced them as part of the International Plum Village Sangha. I believe when the sounds and images are experienced one can't help but be moved by the powerful intention of this pilgrimage of peace and reconciliation. Optional subtitles identify locations in scenes. Versions available in NTSC and PAL, for American and Europe.

There are many wonderful accounts of this extraordinary Viet Nam trip manifesting, including the current Mindfulness Bell and an upcoming story in the Shambala Sun. If you'd like a copy of this video please click on the above image for the ordering details.

Smiling to your
inner beauty
and peace,
