    E11: Spiritual Care & Atttentiveness

    [Part 2] Dr. Elizabeth Johnston Taylor unpacks her definition of spiritual care by sharing stories of discernment and learning in her work with patients and research.
    Publications by Dr. Taylor
    “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” - Rainer Maria Rilke
