Présentation de l'éditeur

A Buddhist monk of Japanese origin, trained in mindfulness, moves to Canada. Near his small apartment in Quebec City is a park, a real little urban oasis located by a high school. The monk takes a contemplative stroll there everyday; all is light and harmony, until...

"This was one of the most significant encounters of my life. An encounter that was a little like the first time I met my spiritual teachers. But it was also very different: it was more brutal and violent than anything I had ever experienced."

THE WALKER: A TALE OF MINDFULNESS, LOSS AND RESILIENCE combines humor and drama, poetry and reflections on happiness, interdependence, nature, acceptance and memories.... It is sure to delight contemporary readers, from the most busy, skeptical ones to the more contemplative. A bowl of fresh air!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Walker: A Tale of Mindfulness, Loss and Resilience 21 mars 2014
Par L. Woods - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a short writing in which the author, a Buddhist monk, helps readers to see how by observing nature and meditating on the interdependence of all things, we can become a little bit more unstuck from our misperceptions of the tragedies of our lives. We can go back to a child's mind, with infinite possibilities, and see everything just for what it is, not for the emotional burden that we turn the world into. It isn't preachy or academic, but a gentle story, a few minutes of beneficial reading.

the novella about a buddhist monk and what happens on one of his daily walks deals with how one deals with the ordinary events that we all run into in one form or another each day.
in its way, the story is a bit like COFFINMAN: THE JOURNAL OF A BUDDHIST MORTICIAN by Shinmon Aoki (Author), Wayne S. Yokoyama (Translator).
a short read that one will keep going back to.

We are always in need of a reminder how dynamic life is. It's reality cannot be captured but we can try if we are mindful and this story makes you look around. I recommend this for anyone looking to see and feel more
