Contemplative Practice

Contemplative practice in palliative care involves cultivating mindfulness, emotional self-regulation and balance in the face of suffering.  We turn toward suffering, bear witness and choose wisely our responses to patients, their families and our colleagues.

"Our willingness to see, to hold ourselves closely just as we are, while being this way with another, is a revealing and deeply healing expression of care.”  Saki Santorelli Heal Thyself, Lessons on Mindfulness in Medicine
