Where is our true home? Is it a particular place with particular people within a particular culture? What if we had to leave our “home”? Or lost the people we held most dear? Or grew up in a culture vastly different to that of our parents’?

In this deeply moving talk, Sister Dinh Nghiem (“Adornment with Concentration”) shares her experience as a child of a refugee family, the death of her father, finding Thay as her teacher and touching peace in the practice of dwelling truly in the present moment.

The talk was given as part of a themed retreat for young people of Asian heritage who were born or grew up in the west.

this talk was recorded in Lower Hamlet, Plum Village France on 4th June 2023.
