We're teaming up with Still Harbor for a live show discussing the life and teachings of Sister Dang Nghiem. Read the wonderful interview she did with their magazine, Anchor.

In this interview with Sister Dang Nghiem, author of Healing: A Woman’s Journey from Doctor to Nun, we read the story of someone who has discerned a vocation of healing and presence. Sister D's wisdom in teaching and practicing mindfulness in order to be a healing presence for herself and others comes through her words.
