Healing

A Woman's Journey From Doctor To Nun

This extraordinary autobiography by Sister Dang Nghiem takes the reader from the rice fields of Vietnam to the peaceful surrounding of Thich Nhat Hanh’s monastery in Plum Village where she took refuge.

There she gained a deep understanding of the Buddhist teachings of mindfulness forged in the fire of her own life experience. Ordained as a nun by Thich Nhat Hanh, who gave her the name “Dang Nghiem,” (adornment with nondiscrimination) Healing shows how the insights gained by her personal experiences now enable Sister Dang Nghiem to become a support and resource for others. With humour, insight, and an irrepressible sense of joy, Sister Dang Nghiem’s story demonstrates how one woman’s unique path can provide clarity and guidance for everyone.
