This lovely reflective booklet describes the seven values that are considered most important in healthcare / for healthcare practitioners. These values form the basis of each module in the Values in Healthcare programme. The booklet can be used as a gift and/or to promote the programme.
Values in Healthcare is a modular development programme which will help healthcare professionals and teams to support themselves and their patients.

“Where does love come from?
Love is intrinsic to human nature. But when we lose sight of the fact that we are love, inside, we chase after it outside of ourselves instead. When we let go of selfish desires, we become free of worry and ill-feeling and our lives become loving through and through. This is very healing.”
“Healing the self”
As I consciously change the quality of my thoughts and ensure they are peaceful and positive, my mind becomes strong. Then, my heart becomes happy and is able to create good feelings. These positive thoughts and feelings generate a kind of power inside. As this power accumulates within, it helps remove the sorrow of the heart and mind. It is this power that heals the self.”
“Heath, Wealth and Happiness”
What is real wealth? It is happiness. Courage and faith are also my wealth. Stay happy and share that happiness with others. It is not a question of just pleasing oneself by satisfying or fulfilling one’s desires. When I am free from any desires, others would not feel the need to please me in order to keep me happy. There is just the deep and pure wish that others remain deeply happy.”
