REVIEWS WALK WITH ME A Journey Into Mindfulness featuring Thich Nhat Hanh Directed by Marc J. Francis and Max Pugh Speakit Films; Fall 2017; 1h 28 mins Walk with Me begins with actor Benedict Cumberbatch narrating the words of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh: “I am often on the verge of tears or laughter. But beneath all these emotions, what else is there? How can I touch it? If there isn’t anything, why would I be so certain that there is?” This film by Marc J. Francis and Max Pugh is a look inside Thich Nhat Hanh’s Plum Village sangha—the calm ordinariness of washing the dishes, walking in the woods, attending ordination ceremo- nies, and being in the present moment for it all. With sparse narration and dialogue, Walk with Me’s use of silence allows its viewers to breathe and relax along with those who have dedicated their lives to being mindful—whether it is tend- ing the garden or writing a letter with your trusty Yoda doll propped up beside you. THE LOST ART OF GOOD CONVERSATION A Mindful Way to Connect with Others and Enrich Everyday Life By Sakyong Mipham Harmony Books, 2017; 222 pp., $19.95 (cloth) We don’t really know how to talk to each other anymore, says Sakyong Mipham. What’s more, in The Lost Art of Good Conversation, the head of Shambhala argues that our exis- tence is diminished by the constant white noise, incessant chatter, and superficial give-and-take of modern day communication. The point of his latest book is that it doesn’t have to be that way. By using the basic prin- ciples of the Shambhala tradition—meditation and a sincere belief in our inherent wisdom, compassion, and courage—we can “reconnect with the sun of goodness in our hearts and use speech to awaken naturally good qualities in ourselves and oth- ers.” This book is for anyone who wants practical tips on how to be more present in their daily lives—and to learn to speak with others in a way that “moves from simply communicating prac- tical bits of information to celebrating human connectedness, to expressing the inexpressible.” Compassionate Approaches to Aging and Dying BJ Miller, M.D. Vassar Byrd, M.A .
