    The Invisibility of Respiratory Therapists

    Posted by Harry Leen on May 18, 2020 2:50:06 PM

    A traditional philosophical conundrum begins with “If a tree falls in a forest……”, but how about this one, if respiratory therapists are invisible to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, do we really exist? The answer is, of course, yes. We are at the bedside, treating afflicted patients, and often in close proximity to the airway. We provide breathing treatments, assist in intubation, and institute and monitor mechanical ventilation. These interventions drastically increase our chances of contracting the virus, and thus we risk our lives in the process.  So why are we not identified in the media alongside nurses and physicians, or if we are, it is under the general description of healthcare workers? What can be done to increase our visibility as a healthcare profession? Let’s examine this issue.

    Searching for Good Vibrations in Troubled Times

    Posted by Brian Luke Seaward on Apr 16, 2020 10:27:24 AM

    Forty years ago I met the renowned energy healer, Olga Worrall, and the experience changed my life. It was nothing she did per se, just that it was amazing to meet someone of this caliber, so authentic, so sincere, so serene. A day after meeting Ogla, I had perhaps THE most spiritual incident.; best described as something between a full Kundalini experience and a brilliant light from a near-death experience all while meditating. Those of you who know me well, know that I have had several mystical experiences throughout my life, beginning as a child. But on that day, things became validated. So many dangling pieces fell into place during this mystical experience, I no longer felt like an outsider. Moreover, it drove my passion and curiosity to learn more about the mind-body-spirit connection, and this has charted my career and life ever since.
