A Soul Care Community
Hosted by Erica Hooper

Nurse Yourself is a coming home for nurses to a regular practice of soul care. Soul Care takes one beyond self-care, going deeper, focusing on nourishing the innermost aspects of one’s being. It involves activities and practices that connect you with your core values, purpose, and sense of meaning. Soul Care is about tending to the spiritual and existential dimensions of life.

The primary aim of Soul Care is to nurture a deep sense of peace, of fulfillment. It is about aligning your life with your deeper values and purpose, fostering a sense of wholeness and authenticity. It is through attending to our deeper values and purpose that we can replenish and fill up our own cup. This not only gives us the energy to invest in basic self-care, but it also shifts our caregiving of others from a place of depletion to a place of abundance.

By joining the Nurse Yourself community and events, you will be invited to invest in yourself, nurture and love yourself, surrounded by others on the same path. You will experience the abundance of energy and joy that comes from giving time to the wonder and uniqueness of who you are. Stay tuned for event and community details.

A Conversation with David Weill, MD

Calling for Change to Instill Humanity Back into Healthcare

Dr. David Weill, previously Director of the Heart-Lung Transplant Program at Stanford University Medical Center, is on a mission to shed light on the things that need to change in healthcare and champion the priority of humanity over profits. Joining us on The Nursing Way, he will share insights and talk about the freedom that, as a novel, his new book All That Really Matters has afforded him in exposing some hard truths.

Bio (in his own words)

It has been my privilege and passion to work in the life-changing practice of organ transplantation. During my exciting career, including 11 years as Director of the Lung and Heart-Lung Transplant Program and founder of the Center for Advanced Lung Disease at Stanford University Medical Center, I saw first-hand the amazing and challenging aspects of transplantation and its effects on patients and transplant team members. Today, I help patients, patient’s families, and transplant teams navigate their transplantation journey to reach optimal outcomes. I am an author and a consultant to leading transplant programs and in occupational lung disease. Through these roles I’ve discovered the power of sharing my experience with others through writing and speaking. Today, I’m using that experience to reach out, inform and encourage all who are affected by organ transplantation.

Nurses as Healers & Story Tellers
