In this final Dharma talk of our 2022 Science & Action Retreat, Sr Chan Duc shares her experience, lessons from our teacher zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, and concrete guidance for overcoming the painful sense of being a separate self-entity, existing separately from our loved ones, our community, and the life surrounding us.
