This blog is a collection of articles and resources that I find interesting and/or important. I hope that these resources can catalyze change and facilitate a continued conversation about the role nurses play in creating not only a just healthcare system, but also a just society.
If you have come to help me you are wasting your time. … But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.

I believe that the above quotes are equally applicable to the self as they are to society. My practice as a buddhist is to be a fully present steward of the physical, psychological, social, and environmental aspects of my existence as a mean of benefitting all beings. This blog is a means of nursing universal buddha-nature.
