“There is no way to happiness - happiness is the way”. - Thich Nhat Hanh
Come on a contemplative journey following in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, and experiencing 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 extracts from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. Walk With Me is a 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.
Walk With Me 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.
Join us for this wondrous evening of film, live music, chocolate tasting and a yummy locally made vegan gluten-free food!

LIVE MUSIC with LUKE BENNETT
After having grown up falling asleep to the sounds of Fleetwood Mac, Tracy Chapman and Dire Straits, it wasn’t until 14 years of age that Launceston born Luke Bennett started to learn the guitar, and find his own way in music... from years of being a bedroom guitarist it wasn’t until Luke had finished college and adopted a nomadic lifestyle that he found songwriting to be a natural expression that followed.
Displaying catchy pop sensibilities that resemble Artists such as John Mayer and Sting and fusing them with the stripped back earthiness of songwriters such as Xavier Rudd and Jack Johnson, Luke Bennett’s sound is sure to feed the soul.
Writing songs that express the richness of life and its adventure’s whilst delving into deeper questions and internal desires, at just 23years this young singer songwriter is one to keep an eye out for…
Luke’s influences include Mark Knopfler, Lindsey Buckingham, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Sting and The Police, The Beautiful Girls, Donovan Frankenreiter, Josh Owen, John Butler Trio and many more...
