by Michele Harper
The author of this eloquent memoir is an ER doctor and a practitioner of yoga and meditation. Here she recounts how she overcame racist colleagues, a background of domestic violence, and the trauma of seeing suffering people every day at work by coming to recognize that brokenness can be a gift, an opportunity to find a new way of life. Through tales of some of her most memorable patients, she tells how she seeks to heal the human body and spirit.
