Einstein said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” Coming from a background of experience with both social and privatized healthcare systems, I am convinced that simply adjusting socio-political methods for delivery is not enough to solve the current healthcare crisis.
One of the most important phenomena on my journey to evolve from a linear medical model to a multidimensional model of healing was not just to broaden my toolbox with extra modalities of healing, but to radically transform my relationship with the client from one where I was caught in a fatalistic perspective (diagnostic), with no other outcome in addressing the symptoms, to one of a greater awareness. This evolution of consciousness made possible many results—from spontaneous remissions to personal growth—within an environment that acknowledged the subjectivity as well as the objectivity of the experience.
Medical health care needs first to be reformed at its base, as the real cost of healing is directly associated with how healing is practiced in this society. What I mean by its base is the way in which doctors and healthcare practitioners are initially trained and educated regarding the art of healing.
