The most beautiful five minutes and 22 seconds you will spend today. . . Thank you to Sue Robins (@suerobinsyvr), Nancy Stordahl (@nancyspoint) and many others who have recommended this to me. A conscious break like this is especially important to the freshly-diagnosed heart patient – who can often feel overwhelmed by pessimism and fear.
After you experience the gorgeous images and words (from Benedictine monk and author Brother David Steindl-Rast), please share with us how they impacted you.
Q: What message did you like from this little film?
NOTE FROM CAROLYN: I wrote more about adjusting to life as a heart patient in my book, “A Woman’s Guide to Living with Heart Disease” , published by Johns Hopkins University Press in 2017. You can ask for it at your local library or favourite bookshop, or order it online (paperback, hardcover or e-book) at Amazon, or order it directly from my publisher (use their code HTWN to save 20% off the list price).
