To Medicine,

The words Love and Medicine are rarely used in the same sentence these days. Yet love is the heart of everything we are, so why not make it the heart of everything we do?

More than anything, we want to be loved and to be able to love, fully and freely in return. We go into medicine because we love people and we want to help them, but along the way our medical training and our intense daily practice of medicine can wear us down and we can lose our connection with the love that impulsed us to become doctors in the first place. But that love never dies… it lies dormant, sometimes deeply buried under layers of pain, hurt and the behaviours we take on to try and cope with difficult feelings, waiting to be reignited once again.

The roots of medicine are true, steeped in ancient traditions where medicine was not just an art, craft, or science, but was a way of life, a way that was lived by its practitioners, who inspired others to live that way too. For us to return to being true practitioners of medicine, we need to restore that living way, starting with ourselves. And that means connecting with our hearts, and reigniting our love for ourselves, for each other, and for medicine.

We invite you to join us on this journey of restoring true medicine to life.

Taking a break is not a time to escape from our bodies and our lives, but a time to enjoy being in our bodies even more deeply, and to appreciate ourselves, just for who we are.

Hi this is Anne Malatt with self-care moments and this is a moment on conversation. We spend a lot of our lives in conversation, talking to and about each other and life – what is the quality of that conversation and is this even something that we consider?

Self-care moments: Drinking

If you think you may be drinking too much alcohol, you probably are, knowing that even one drink is not good for you. So consider looking at why you drink and you may just find that waiting inside you is a younger you who does not like the taste of alcohol, but who loves you, just as you are … and let that essence of you and the knowing of your body, guide your way through life.

Self-care moments: Eating

I love eating food and always have. I have come to understand that there is a purpose to food beyond stimulating and satisfying the senses.

Swimming is an absolute joy for me. I love the feeling of being weightless in the water and gliding along in a rhythmic, flowing way.
