Thomas Moore talks about medicine in Glasgow
Doctor Bob Leckridge posts his reactions to meeting Thomas Moore and to hearing Moore lecture in Glasgow this week under Thomas Moore — care of the soul". Leckridge writes about his own first consultations using integrative medicine: "The process of a holistic, non-judgemental, compassionate consultation forms a strong (what Thomas would call “soul”) connection. The patient feels heard, they feel felt, they feel understood. However, I thought it was great to be reminded that we are all unknowable, that we all have unfathomable depths. It sets up a certain humility of practice and of living." He reports that Moore started his talk with a focus on mystery and "how none of us is completely knowable."
