remembering the heart of medicine

“To practice medicine with good spirit does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to bring your calm and loving heart right into the midst of it.”

When you bring your whole heart into your work, you tap into a lineage of healing that dates back to the time of Hippocrates, and invite mysteries and graces that often cannot be explained. The small room with the patient waiting on the examining table is its own kind of universe — a place where fears and hopes intersect with the precision of medical science. This can be a place of contraction or expansion, a place of routine or discovery. What really matters is having the courage to be fully present to what is happening in that moment. We invite you to join us on a continuous journey of rediscovery into the heart of your work and its personal meaning for you. Through on-line discussions, poetry, storytelling, journal writing, symbols and imagery — our intention is to provide a solid structure of support for you to explore the joys and challenges of a life of service and to feel part of a community of like-minded physicians. join us
