Meet other medical professionals in San Diego

The second Osler Symposium invites people in health professions to San Diego, California from 20 October to 23 October 2012, for Doctoring in the 21st Century: Embracing the Challenge at the Catamaran Hotel.

Thomas Moore participates in different sessions on Tuesday 23 October 2012. His description under Faculty & Storytellers reads: "As a psychotherapist I’ve been in a healing role for thirty-five years. In all that time, my practice has healed me as well as my clients. I also know that if I do any good, it is because of how I have tended my life and person. I truly believe that everyone — parents, teachers, lovers and friends — is called to be a healer."

Moore writes in a recent blog post: "This is a special gathering of doctors under the leadership of a caring and effective leader, Janice Mancuso. Doctors talk to each other about their experience of being doctors. We had the first symposium last year in Albuquerque, and I was moved and impressed by what happened there. I wish all doctors could spend a few days with Janice and her friends and be refreshed. I will talk about the doctor as a spiritual guide. It’s part of the job, though a part that has been forgotten in recent years with the gradual increase of the science/fact archetype in medicine. All you have to do is look at effective medical practitioners around the globe and at the history of Western medicine to see how soul and spirit have always been part of medical care and healing."
