Curing Burnout

Curing Burnout

Curing Burnout

People often ask me about burnout, both colleagues and laypeople.  I appear to them to be asking so much of the healer, to give each day from the depths of their soul and to bring light into darkness.  How can I possibly keep from burning out?

Because when I need it most, the people I care for bring the light right back, that’s how.  On this last day of Chanukah, I thank everyone who has shared their light with me, no matter how much they were hurting at the time, to rekindle my own flame.  You are the reason my oil keeps burning, long after it should have burned out.
