9781452584386: Forty Years of Sacred Space: Life Lessons from a Doctor's Notebook

After forty-three years in the sacred space of caring for patients, Dr. Donovan shares his observations and thoughts about illness and healing. He believes illness serves us by acting as life's transformative process. As such, the journey through our illness may be precisely the very experiential journey we need to realize our healing and ourselves more fully. After all, we don't "get" cancer. Cancer, like any illness, is a process. We "are" the cancer we manifest. Our cancer arises out of our own tissues and cellular make up. To rid our self of our cancer is to rid our self of a part of our self. Instead of thinking about illness as something we "get" something separate from ourselves needing to be removed or defeated, Dr. Donovan thinks we might well do better viewing our illness as a transformational journey that must be undertaken and completed for our healing to emerge. We can't get rid of our selves but we can transform ourselves and our illness provides us with that opportunity. It allows us our healing.

About the Author:

Dr. Donovan is a Primary Care Naturopathic Physician, author and educator voted by his peers as one of Seattle's "Top Doctors" in the Seattle Metropolitan Magazine. He has also served as an adjunct Clinical Professor of Medicine at Bastyr University for many years and was one of 23 physicians featured in Burton Goldberg's book, An Alternative Medicine Definitive Guide to Cancer. He has over 40 years of professional patient care experience. Dr. Donovan is also a poet, artist and musician. When he is not seeing patients at University Health Clinic, he can be commonly found puttering in his garden at home in Shoreline, Washington with a cup of tea or glass of wine waxing philosophical or "jamming" on guitar with his son.
