Slow down and breathe. This contemplative journey into the world of mindfulness and the Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, is a rare insight into life within a monastic community and what it means to devote one's life to mindfulness.

With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in rural 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 (amplified by insights from Thich Nhat Hanh's early journals, which Cumberbatch reads) 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.
