Loving Our Neighbors
It is 2022 and we have issues. From global crises (think pandemic and climate change) to personal challenges like our own mental health or family relationships, we are not in great shape at the moment.
But we also have hope. And resources. And wisdom. And each other. For that reason, our program theme for 2022 is “Loving Our Neighbors.” This is ancient wisdom that couldn’t be more relevant today. There are lots of questions to explore with you: How broadly do you define neighbor? (Spoiler alert: we are with all the great spiritual teachers who defined it very inclusively.) Is loving someone the same as liking them? Where is the line between loving others and loving ourselves?
If you are interested in exploring how we can better love our neighbors, we hope that you will join us in some way shape or form this year. Sign up for a LumZoom event like a book group, PT for the Soul, or a Saturday retreat. Or maybe just read the newsletter or monthly e-news. Check out this website for other resources, and see you soon!
We miss being together, but think you've done well with the difficult times, to offer other ways of connecting.

January 17th, 2022
I would like to take this opportunity to extend my gratitude for the opportunities for growth and meaningful reflection afforded by the Physicians Colleagues program. The type of introspection and discussion amongst peers provided by the program does not come instinctually to me, and the fact that it has influenced my outlook on practice and life underscores the depth of the program. The program has encouraged me to think reflectively, and act proactively, regarding how I function as a physician, and more importantly, as a person. I returned from the retreat energized, which is perfect timing for when our family gratefully ushers in a new life.
