Hello, my little fear: Sister Giac Nghiem about strong emotions

Peace, Teaching

Sister Giac Nghiem explains how we can become good friends with our strong emotions. It is like becoming friends with E.T., an unknown extra-terrestrial. At first we might be scared, but we can transform our fear into understanding, love and care.

“When fear comes up in us, we tend to run away. We are scared. Breathing in and breathing out we simply can turn fear into our best friend.”

This teaching is part of a series of teachings about how to handle our strong emotions.

Recorded during the Rains Retreat, Plum Village, December 2020.

Watch also The Way Out (La Sortie) and To Live Awake (Vivre Éveillé), two films in which taking care of our strong emotions plays an important role. You can find all our films here: mindful films.
