It is probably just a coincident that today(July 29, 2010) the conversations about healing have had increased visibility. Two of my favorite authors converged on the national stage. Abraham Verghese was part of a segment on the McNeil Newshour, titled "Hands-on Healing" and Atul Gawande was having conversations on his essay in the New Yorker, "Letting Go: What should medicine do when it can't save your life?"(August 2, 2010).
These authors continue to be strong voices of reflection and healing. Keep listening!
