SORT BY Relevancy
This active, Medical Order is the last such organization, carrying on the work of monastic medicine, and we wish to have it preserved for the benefit of future generations as well as serve a lasting memory of a movement that contributed significantly to the Renaissance of today’s modern medicine. This heritage included languages, transcription, folk tales, ceremonies, etc. about traditional medicine, and all the medical and nursing skills that were handed down from generation to generation including surgery and ambulatory care. These traditions and practices reflect the spirit of members and communities of the doctors from Europe to the Americas, to the Philippines. This intangible heritage is at great risk as the natural and spiritual heritage must be preserved to the world for future posterity.
The new school emphasizes the biological sciences in relation to theistic evolution, bedside diagnosis, tropical medicine, laboratory, emergency medicine, minor surgery, chaplaincy, nursing, and rural primary care. Academic learning will work in concert with clinical rotations in the rural clinics sponsored and operated by the Order.
Description: The program is combined online studies with clinical rotations as service to the Order's Hospitals and primary care centers. The centers are currently located in Nevis, West Indies; Quito and Santo Domingo Ecuador; Malakoff, Texas; Cyprus; with other centers developing. Enrollment is limited to members of the Order having taken monastic vows.
Admittance into the School is by formal application with a referral of Knight in good standing. Upon application and confirmation, an appointment for personal interview is arranged.

Life wants each of us to know and express the magnificence within ourselves, and to honor that magnificence in each other.
Dr. Shani Fox’s passion for helping survivors reclaim an extraordinary life after cancer came as a “calling” in mid-life. The calling followed her observation that too many survivors, after completing acute cancer treatment, are left feeling unwell, unsupported and alone, wondering who to turn to that understands their needs.
Dr. Shani’s mission is that every survivor transition from acute treatment directly into loving, expert care aimed at supporting complete recovery, building resilience to future disease, and leveraging the hard-won wisdom of the cancer experience to create a life of peace and deep fulfillment.
Through her exquisite gifts of compassion and insights as physician and a life mastery coach, she is particularly skilled at helping patients overcome their fear of cancer recurrence, which may affect up to 96 percent of survivors.
Prompted by her father’s death in 2001, Dr. Shani, as she prefers to be called, discovered she wanted to make a direct, positive difference in the lives of others, as her dad had so lovingly modeled. Although her father died from cancer, it was how he lived for “28 bonus years” following a near-fatal car accident when Dr. Shani was 15 that most impacted her.
“With the understanding of life’s fragility tha t only such an experience can bring, he lived the remainder of his days to the fullest,” Dr. Shani shares. “He didn’t waste time or words. Every human interaction was sacred to him, and he spent every moment he could enjoying his family, leaving a legacy of happy memories to those who loved him.”
Sylvia Lafair, PhD, co-founder and President of Creative Energy options began her career in psychology to explore why people do what they do in personal relationships. Seeing the connection between how families behave and how work teams operate, she developed corporate team building activities to stop office politics and enhance team communication and collaboration.
She loves to tell the following story:
“My husband, Herb Kaufman and I had developed one of the most well respected personal growth centers in Philadelphia.
A participant in one of the seminars asked Sylvia if she would work with his senior leadership team. Her surprised response was “Why?” His response was ‘They’re fighting.” Her retort was “So what.” And what he said next led to a career change that has been amazing and totally unexpected.
He was thoughtful when he responded “Look, you work with families and you help them learn to get along better. My team is like a family and they need to learn to work together more effectively.”
“That,” as Dr. Sylvia Lafair said, “was when the light bulb went on. No one else had put the two together. Think of it this way, there are bosses like parents, co-workers like siblings, salaries like allowances, and even time outs called performance improvement plans.”
"My research shows that much as we like to believe our behavior is entirely rational, our thoughts and actions are often driven by the roles we learned in our families as children. And under pressure, we tend to revert to old patterns, often creating workplace drama that diverts attention from the business and undermines productivity. Once individuals see how their stress behavior shows up at work and what to do about it, they immediately take these new insights home with them.”
