I will be presenting “Burnout: Soul Loss & Recovery in Health Care” at this free virtual international symposium sponsored by The Doctor as Humanist, McGraw Hill, Sechenov University, and Universidad Anáhuac México.
David and Suzanne continue their moving discussion around ‘doing better than rushing to return to normal’ after things shift once again with COVID 19.
This episode dwells in the land of opportunity: What could things look like for us as a people, a world, an environment should we thoughtfully, purposefully move with the new things ushered in despite the chaos vs desperately trying to ‘get back’ to what was once upon a time—back then?
There is such beauty in their words!
I will borrow a saying from David: “Like pinatas of wisdom…”

David and Suzanne do some wrestling for us in this episode:
The push to ‘return to normal’ after a stretch of chaos.
*What could we miss as a people, a nation, a world?
*What questions could we be asking of ourselves right now, and one another?
*What gems could be squandered if we skip past this pause before the return?
Their thoughts will cause you to slow your pace and move ahead with more intention and quite possibly in a different direction.
Listening to them share is very centering. And probably something you will want to repeat!

*What if we slowed the rush to return?
Seattle psychiatrist David Kopacz and Vermont educator/community activist Suzanne Richman extend an invitation to us all. It is not a passive request. By its very essence, the word ‘invitation’ suggests action, a response. These powerful TLA thought leaders ask us to RSVP to the call to reflect before we return.
There are 3 parts to the core invitation. Each part is a meal-of-thought in itself.
