Dharma Talks / Breathing Peace and Love |  “Spirituality, Science & Action” Retreat, Talk #1  

Sr Lăng Nghiêm

In this Dharma Talk offered on the first day of our 2022 Science retreat, Sr. Lang Nghiem (“Sister Hero”) presents concrete daily practices to help us master our mind. Thanks to the practice of mindfulness, we can intervene in the neural pathways that dictate our ways of being and create new neural pathways that manifest love, understanding, acceptance, generosity and compassion. Can you accept the challenge of turning your scientific investigation inwards and being at the same time the scientist and the lab?

Sister Lang Nghiem shares the principle, method and tools that you will need to invest in as you evolve through this fascinating experiment. However, in order not to lose track, please keep in mind Mindfulness is not only a means, it is a way of life in itself.
