In the Oxford Dictionary of Nursing, healing is defined as “making whole, both by restoring injured or diseased tissue and, more generally, by returning to full and independent function”, which feels like fixing, mending a broken tissue, organ, or function.

Yes, healing can be the mending of something broken, but it can also be the return to a previous, healthier way of being; a reconnection with a more nurturing community; finding our way back to our roots, our identity, and reconnecting with ourselves. It is a process of getting better.

What does healing mean to you?
