Slightly different focus provides guidance for caregivers looking after the ill among us. The title is: "Medicine and Compassion" by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche and David R. Shlim, M.D. A blend of Eastern and Western medicine emphasizes how compassion for the patient enhances the medical encounter, helps patients feel better, and actually can extend life. Compassion, our natural state, is defined as the heartfelt desire to relieve the suffering of others. You will find the book both fascinating and hopeful that health promotion can begin with more compassionate health providers. Location to be announced.  Contact: Nanette 360-671-1686.
