About the Author

Wietske Vriezen was born in Wassenaar, Holland. She grew up there and in Scotland. She is a longtime practitioner in Thich Nhat Hanh's community. After having travelled and moved around a bit, she settled down in the city of Rotterdam where she works as a psychologist with gifted children. Ever since she was young, she has loved drawing and making little books.

In the year 2000 Wietske met Thich Nhat Hanh on a retreat in Holland and was touched deeply by the practice. Since then, she has spent time practicing in Plum Village and in the local sanghas in The Hague and Rotterdam. Also she has explored different spiritual paths, only to rediscover what she feels is a profound beauty and wisdom in the Buddhist path as Thây teaches it. 

"The words may sometimes appear to be simple, but I discover more and more what depth and riches lie beneath when I really try to practice them in my own life. The practice brings me peace, joy, a sense of stability and a healthy direction to go in. I have also experienced how warm and supportive it is to practice within a Sangha, to grow together with friends going in the same direction."

I love everything I have read by Thich Nhat Hanh. This is no exception! The book explains each movement and has easy to follow diagrams. The video is wonderful and goes through each movement with a Zen monk, brother Michael, and then with Thich Nhat Hanh. The movements are gentle and simple, yet definitely invoke the mind body connection and create a sense of calm and balance. My 78 year old mother in law has health problems and really needs to "move." She enjoyed this!

A deceptively simple and delightful book which gives 10 extremely useful exercises which can be done, either as given or modified for those who are less mobile. Meditation in movement. I recommend them for more elderly people who are having difficulties with balance, and therefore these particular exercises are crucial in helping to prevent falls.

I love this book-DVD. I use it in my classroom. The children love doing these movements to get the day going. My students all have Autism, I find it helps many of them to relax. We followed the DVD for a few days, now we move together without it. We pick and choose which movements to do each day as all 10 would take a bit too much time. I highly recommend this for everyone.

I sit a lot so I don't care to sit and meditate too. I was looking for a book on moving meditation and came across this book. It had some great reviews so decided to take a look. The explanations are simple and straightforward. Subjects covered are what is mindfulness, the "seven miracles of mindfulness", and breathing and moving mindfully. Thank goodness are no long winded, high minded explanations. Who has time in this busy age to plow through pages and pages about this and that? The short explanations are complete enough and I don't think anyone will be sorry doing these ten simple movements during a workday break or in the morning to refresh, calm, and energize the mind and body. A few of the movements may be difficult if you don't have good balance, but you can brace yourself with something sturdy that won't move. Wietske Vriezen illustrates the movements with her charming and cheerful drawings. There are few pages about Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, and one of his short poems. The DVD demonstrates the 10 movements. You can also see the movements in videos on YouTube. I appreciate the book has a sturdy hard cover and the pages are bound by an inner metal comb binding so the book and pages can lie flat.

The book is a pleasure to read, really fun inclusive illustrations and clear directions, and it's great having the DVD so you can also try following along. I do these with my mom and my daughter, it works great for all three generations. I gave a copy to my daughter's preschool teacher and they now start the day with these movements in her class. Highly highly recommended!

As a mental health practioner I find Thich Nhat Hanh's work very useful and regularly recommend it to people. This book is no exception. In fact, I will probably recommend it more. It's rich illustrations add to the descriptions of the moves making it user friendly for both adults and children. Families wanting to teach their children how to slow down and live in the present should find this book helpful. And, in an educationally simple manner, the introduction introduces the reader to mindfulness in a manner that is not overwhelming. I remain a fan of this very peaceful man.

I was disappointed to find that there is no equivalent of the DVD on the Kindle edition. You would think that there would be digital video included! Well, I couldn't find it and I am returning the Kindle version to purchase the complete version in hardcopy.

It would have been kind for Amazon to let us know this before making a purchase.
