For three days at a time, you can Increase your effective Vitality by 1 (even above its natural Maximum) - and Increase your Serenity by 1 at the same time. The ability even works in duels, and was much practiced by famous duelists of more civilized ages.
Note, however, that this talent can only come into play if your Stress is 3 or less.
