Walk With Me

At DESERT SONG HEALING ARTS CENTER Saturday, May 18 at 7:15pm

PHX Film Collective is proud to partner with Desert Song Healing Arts Center for this special outdoor screening of “Walk With Me.”

"Slow down and breathe. This contemplative journey follows in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and is a rare insight into life within a monastic community. The sun rises. Everything is calm and still. Life is beautifully serene as Benedict Cumberbatch’s composed, meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. So begins Max Pugh and Marc J Francis’ fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one’s life to mindfulness. With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in the South West of France, Walk With Me captures the daily routine and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to develop a deep sense of presence. It is an insightful rumination on the pursuit of happiness, living in the present and our attachment to material things – a welcome remedy to the stresses of city life and a world in turmoil.”- Laure Bonneville, London Film Festival

Walking and breathing - two of our basic functions, one autonomic, one intentional. Before we walk into the garden to sit and watch our PHX Film Collective movie, "Walk With Me," we'll start with a few breathing, stretching and relaxation exercises to prepare our mind and spirit.  Plan to arrive around 7:00 pm to lay on your blanket or yoga mat on the garden.  Then, join us indoors at 7:15 pm for some pre-movie yoga, which will allow you to stretch out from your day and prepare yourself for a wonderful movie experience at Desert Song Yoga & Healing Arts. 

Location: Desert Song Healing Arts Center 3232 N 20th St, Phoenix
