Sister Annabel Laity (Chan Duc, True Virtue) was born in England, and studied Classics and Sanskrit before going to India to study and practice with Tibetan nuns. She has been a disciple of Thich Nhat Hanh since 1986, and in 1988, in India, she was the first woman from the West to be ordained as a nun by Thich Nhat Hanh. She became a Dharma Teacher in 1990, and was Director of Practice at Plum Village for many years. She was installed as abbess at the Green Mountain Dharma Center in the US in 1998 and named to head the United Buddhist Church (UBC). As a much-loved senior Monastic Dharma Teacher of the Order of Interbeing, she travels widely, leading meditation retreats and giving talks throughout the world. In 2000, she was the first Western nun to teach the Dharma in Thailand. Sr. True Virtue has translated books of Thich Nhat Hanh, writes on Buddhist ethics and practice, and is the Advisor and Editor of the Mindfulness Bell – a Journal of the Art of Mindful Living published by Plum Village. She is now Dean of Practice at the European Institute of Applied Buddhism in Germany.
