Sister Dang Nghiem speaks on “Mindfulness as Medicine”
This distinguished lecture series engages the rich history of Buddhist thought and ethical action to advance critical dialogues on ethics, humanity, and MIT’s mission “to develop in each member of the MIT community the ability and passion to work wisely, creatively, and effectively for the betterment of humankind.”
Sister Dang Nghiem is a monastic disciple and translator of Zen Master Thích Nhất Hạnh, celebrated by Martin Luther King Jr. as “an apostle of peace and nonviolence.”Born in Vietnam during the Tet Offensive and coming to the US as a refugee, Sister Dang Nghiem attended medical school and became a physician before deciding to enter monastic life. She will present her public lecture on March 7, and together with Sister Truc Nghiem will lead a meditation session the following day.
