on how to cultivate peace, freedom and happiness

We live in challenging times. To live awake, in harmony and truly connected is an art. The basic condition of this art is to come home to yourself and be fully present. But how to do that?

In this film we travel with Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and his community to Spain and with young monastics to Latin America. We see how practitioners are invited to return home to themselves, through the practice of mindfulness. The simple practice of mindful walking, mindful breathing, total relaxation and sharing in groups, moves and transforms the practitioners deeply, often even within a couple of days. It’s like a miracle.

One of the practitioners shares in the film: “It has been an enriching experience in every sense. It shows me another way of living life. With more compassion, with more understanding, with more love, more calm. And to find true happiness.”

Do you want to wake up too?

For people of all ages, children and adults.

This film is also available with French subtitles: Vivre Éveillé. and in the original Spanish version: Vivir Despiertos.

This film is released online on 31 October 2019.
