Sister Kinh Nghiem, also known as “Sister Reverence,” has been trained directly with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh as his attendant in Plum Village, France, and assisted him on his teaching tours around the world. She has been a senior Teacher at Deer Park Monastery, California for the last 8 years.
Brother Phap Linh, also known as “Brother Spirit,” is a musician and seeker. He has composed many of the community’s most beloved chants, and is also pioneering Plum Village’s “yogi and scientist” retreats, exploring how the wisdom of mindfulness and neuroscience can lead to paths of healing.
Sister Hien Nghiem is a passionate advocate of engaged Buddhism and community building. Also known as “Sister Dedication,” she devotes her time and energy to finding creative ways to apply ancient Buddhist wisdom to the challenges of our time.
We’ve also got a pop-up London Mindfulness Hub happening (our 3rd year in a row), where monastics will lead a number of events and Days of Mindfulness in May. You are very much welcome to attend and connect with us. More info and booking here.
