SORT BY Relevancy
So excited to welcome to the #courageous #living podcast, She Writes Press author, Irene Allison of the upcoming non-fiction book, Stay, Breathe with Me. We'll be talking about the theme of courage as it relates to her work and upcoming book, Stay, Breathe with Me.
As she writes over at the She Writes blog, "it takes courage to share your writing with the world because everyone has something to say, sometimes in ways that nurture, sometimes in ways that scorch."
Serious, incurable illness is a drama of body, mind, and soul where symptoms and suffering cannot be separated from the person who is ill. Yet that is what happens in our modern medical system, a system so focused on technology and cure, it loses sight of the person behind the illness. The result is cruel and needless suffering. In Stay, Breathe with Me, the authors make the argument that it’s time to revive the art of care. If we fully embrace the human side of illness, if we remove the false barriers separating caregivers from the seriously ill, we can meet in that space of shared humanity and universal human needs.
This is the space of heart and compassion, where healing hands can be guided by the wisdom of the patient and where suffering can be eased. Informed by the voices of the seriously ill, their families, and the lifelong experience of a pioneer in palliative care, Stay, Breathe with Me illustrates how to bring heart back into healthcare and compassion for those who need it most.
