Join Deborah Grassman, author of The Hero Within: Redeeming the Destiny We Were Born to Fulfill and Peace at Last: Stories of Hope and Healing for Veterans and Their Families as she collaborates with non-religious based authors and philosophers such as Frankl, Nouwen, and Peck to develop a map for successful suffering.
This map opens new vistas for healthcare providers as they interact with their patients. Utilizing her experience of hospice in India, Deborah will also highlight the power of "and" along with the tyranny of "or," facilitating integration of experience without compartmentalization.
