A woman smiling - black and white.

Reading Time: 14 minutes Sitting quietly this morning, as I listened to the universe for inspirational writing to share, I was taken back through my past, to my days of hard suffering.

Reading Time: 4 minutes “To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” (Lewis B. Smedes) Sometimes we are hurt by someone or something so deeply that it seems we can’t put the situation aside.

An abstract painting of a person with their eyes covered with yellow paint,

Reading Time: 4 minutes I have seen people who are hurt and depressed spiral into crippling depression rather suddenly, losing their energy and desire to live. A lot of people face depression—at least 264 million people world-wide—and that statistic is pre-pandemic (WHO, 2020).

Reading Time: 6 minutes This edition of Healers Magazine, “The Other Pandemic: Integrative Medicine’s Defining Moment,” is the least successful in accommodating those living in bad faith; still, so long as we don’t trigger anyone, maybe that’s for the best.

How can I REALLY help people? My parents wanted me to be a doctor, and I […]

An abstract painting containing a woman's portrait, various animals and a couple of floting eyes.

Reading Time: 4 minutes We have all been tested over the past months—some physically, others mentally and spiritually—as we attempt to make sense of a pandemic. I notice my thoughts jumping from wondering how we will get through this, to hoping for a healthier planet, to feeling for those who are experiencing sickness and have lost loved ones, back […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes They say time heals all wounds. Unfortunately, time also has a way of opening the deepest ones back up periodically. The Events that Define Us There are a handful of moments in our lives that change us in some way: e.g., the day you gain or lose someone you love, the day your beliefs about […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes When I started my nursing career back in 2001, I was a mature student but I didn’t feel that way faced with individuals, families and communities during their most emotive times due to death and thereafter grief.
