Patient Salon Webinar - our community stays strong!

Due to Covid-19, our March Patient Salon, which normally takes place in our beautiful "Living Room", takes place as an online webinar.

In our March Patient Salon Dr Chrisabelle Yeoh and Giselle Cooke gave us some more insight as to how to build up our immune system in those challenging times.

Sharing the opening poem:

A Poem

What if you thought of it
as the Jews consider the Sabbath—
the most sacred of times?
Cease from travel.
Cease from buying and selling.
Give up, just for now,
on trying to make the world
different than it is.
Sing. Pray. Touch only those
to whom you commit your life.
Center down.

And when your body has become still,
reach out with your heart.
Know that we are connected
in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.
Know that our lives
are in one another’s hands.
Do not reach out your hands.
Reach out your heart.
Reach out your words.
Reach out all the tendrils
of compassion that move, invisibly,
where we cannot touch.

Promise this world your love–
for better or for worse,
in sickness and in health,
so long as we all shall live.
