Today I was teaching a man with Stage IV cancer. I am not thinking about getting him to change. I look to create a space where he can let go of unnecessary stress so that he can feel even just a little bit better.
"Taking responsibility for one's health and future is the most important part of one's own healing process. I practice this myself, and encourage students to do the same. It's not something the medical profession can give to us; it is something we have to create and maintain for ourselves."
