Healing takes many forms and can mean many things to different people. Going to the doctor and pharmacist can be part of the process of becoming healthy again. Accessing our internal power to engage in the process of becoming and/or remembering our wholeness may be part of healing. From an Indigenous perspective, healing is a process, rarely a one-time event. We each can choose to be “good medicine” or “bad medicine” for ourselves or others. Good medicine is anyone or anything that brings into alignment the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical. Bad medicine is anyone or anything that takes our spiritual, mental, emotional and physical wellbeing out of alignment. The desire to be happy and to avoid suffering means that we can draw on the gift of healing in our lives daily, helping us become the whole, healthy human being we want to be.
In the living room conversations, participants will be able to take turns talking to share and learn.
Facilitated by library staff members, these conversations offer a simple, sociable, and structured way to practice communicating across differences while building understanding and relationships.
