I’m delighted to announce that the Northern Ireland British Psychological Society and the School of Psychology at Queens University Belfast are sponsoring this public talk by Sister Insight from Plum Village.
Sister Tue Nghiem (Sister Insight) is a Senior Dharma Teacher within the Plum Village Mindfulness tradition. Plum Village is the mindfulness practice centre/Buddhist monastery in France founded by Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh (www.plumvillage.org ). Sister Insight ordained as a nun 22 years ago and lives her daily life practising mindfulness and leading mindfulness retreats around the world.
The talk will focus on how we can establish wellness by living peacefully.
Psychologists are interested in the contribution that this religious tradition has had on recently developed therapies such as mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and are interested in learning the origins and history of these ideas and approaches. We are hosting this event with an open stance towards learning from different perspectives on wellness. We look forward to this learning and invite members of the public to join with us in this endeavour.
Admission is FREE and open to everyone but booking is required. Voluntary donation will be suggested on the night. BOOKING via the BPS registration system is essential. BOOK ONLINE HERE. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
