Messages & Music for Sustaining the Heart of Healthcare (Gary Malkin and Michael Stillwater, 2005) The Care for the Journey audio resource is a CD of spoken messages from leaders in compassionate care supported by original scored music. It is used by health professionals and healing practitioners as a continuing education tool and for inspirational self-renewal.
Developed by the creators of Graceful Passages: A Companion for Living and Dying, a leading palliative care resource, this CD helps strengthen skills and capacity for emotional presence, relational medicine, and healing dialogue. The role and impact of grief and loss, communication skills, and self-care practices are explored. This work is a spiritual practice. When we touch another person physically, we’re touching more than just their body. We’re touching their mind, we’re touching their heart, we’re touching their very soul.
