Editorial Reviews


This book is a marvelous revelation... Michael builds upon his experiences in nursing to provide rich teaching tales from the everyday work of a hospital that point us toward love and kindness. I recommend this book most highly as an engaging and uplifting read that s both inspirational and educational perfect for both the beach and the classroom setting in health sciences and anthropology. --Lewis Mehl-Madrona, MD, PhD, author of Coyote Medicine

This book is an invitation to enter the territory of the boundless heart. Rich in from-the-soul stories, and rooted in deep recognition of our human kinship, it has much to teach us about healing, living, and loving. --Aura Glaser, author of A Call to Compassion

Drawing on his own struggles with the mysterious microbial demons of MS and a range of fascinating encounters with patients and doctors, Michael Ortiz Hill gives us a soul-stirring meditation on the nature of illness, life and death. Reading these stories on the healing qualities of compassion, you feel empowered and encouraged on your own journey toward wholeness. --Ralph Metzner, PhD, author of The Well of Remembrance and The Unfolding Self
