Rachel Remen: The Soul of Medicine
"The heart has had a very central role in medicine. Aristotle describes the temples of Asclepius, which was the first medical center. He described this as a group of buildings with courtyards and, in one of the courtyards of the temples of Asclepius there was a statue of Venus, the goddess of love. What that's about is that the perspective of the heart is central to the practice of medicine." In t... posted on Jan 28 2020, 2,083 reads

 

United in Change
"The 2016 election laid bare how divided our country was, each side seemingly incapable of seeing the others' viewpoints. News reports were filled with stories about the raging poles of the political spectrum, no room any longer for the middle, on climate or anything else. The months leading up to the election and the time since had left me feeling beaten down, like a child of parents on the verge... posted on Jan 27 2020, 2,495 reads

 

Understanding King's Nonviolence
"In Kingian Nonviolence, a philosophy developed out of the teachings of Martin Luther King Jr., there is a distinction made between nonviolence spelled with a hyphen, and nonviolence spelled without a hyphen. 'Non-violence' is essentially two words: 'without' 'violence.' When spelled this way, it only describes the absence of violence. As long as I am "not being violent," I am practicing non-viole... posted on Jan 26 2020, 1,849 reads

Treatable Deaths are Also Violence
"In 2009, after completing my medical residency at a county hospital in Los Angeles I signed up to split my time between San Francisco and some of the most economically destitute parts of the planet. It was a simple calculation about where to best use my skills. In an academic medical center in San Francisco, there could be 50 doctors on one floor. If I disappeared hardly anyone would notice.

How to Overcome a False Growth Mindset
"It all started when my Australian colleague Susan Mackie informed me that she was seeing more and more false growth mindset.

Speaking of Nature
"We have a special grammar for personhood. We would never say of our late neighbor, "It is buried in Oakwood Cemetery." Such language would be deeply disrespectful and would rob him of his humanity. We use instead a special grammar for humans: we distinguish them with the use of he or she, a grammar of personhood for both living and dead Homo sapiens. Yet we say of the oriole warbling comfort to m... posted on Jan 19 2020, 2,688 reads
