This is a group for all health care providers, doctors, nurses, dentists,hygienists,home care providers,etc. I started this group as place where colleagues enter into meaningful dialogue on a chosen topic related to the fundamental experience of doctoring, nursing and healthcare — topics such as grief, grace, healing, courage, mystery, intimacy, service and other similar subjects. Each person contributes a story on the topic drawn from their own healthcare practice — or reads a poem or a piece from world literature on the meeting topic.
These discussions are circles of exploration, discovery and sharing. Uncovering meaning is antecedent to finding deeper satisfaction in service work. Over time, the dialogue within a supportive community of colleagues can have the positive effect of deepening each person’s heart connection to their day-to-day work and to their patients, as well as to their connection to the lineage of medicine and healing.
