Dharma is my most influential spiritual life strategist so far this life. 11 years ago I was called to meet him and from day one he made it known, he saw me. His first words to me on my second class were "You are stiff, all twisted up" and he physically cued me to move. I could not even get control of that area of the body which was surprising because having been a dancer, that was rare but what was the most interesting thing is that I did not feel ashamed at my inability to follow his verbal cue. That stood out to me. Up until then, I usually did feel shame when being critiqued by any level of authority.

I believe that if you are serious about doing no harm and being more transparent at the same time, you may want to take a weekend to mull over a couple of feelings and facts.
The Present Cost Containment IS Changing The Process
According to the authors, an investigation of the cited large healthcare organizations uncovered "more than 260 patients have died since 2013 after in-and-out procedures at surgery centers across the country. Dozens — some as young as 2 — have perished after routine operations, such as colonoscopies and tonsillectomies.” ( Jewett and Alesia, 2018)
I have to say, I feel for those families. Earlier this year I went on a FB page rant after my son's "routine nasal surgery" HERE . My patient experience was...
