A brand new Book Club Group is starting at the Yoga Path, to be held on Tuesday Nights 7:30 starting January 24 through February 7 You do not have to be a current student of the Path or practicing yoga. You just need to read a book. The book we be studying is Healing: A Woman’s Journey from Doctor to Nun by Sister Dang Nghiem, a Vietnamese Buddhist nun.
“This extraordinary story takes the reader from Saigon, to the California coast, to a monastery in the southwest France. Huong Huynh was born to a Vietnamese mother and a U.S. soldier in the midst of war. She dedicated her life to healing and transforming the suffering of other people, first as a medical doctor and then as a nun. Ordained by Zen Master Thich Chat Hanh, who gave her the name —Dang Nghiem—(adornment with nondiscrimination), she finally experienced her own healing. With humor, insight, and an irrepressible sense of joy, Sister Dang Nghiem’s story offers clarity and guidance for anyone who has dealt with suffering and loss.
About the Author
Sister Dang Nghiem was born in central Vietnam in 1968 during the Tet Offensive. Her mother was Vietnamese; her father was a U.S. soldier.
