"People often say that laughter is the best medicine, but it's not. Really, I think it is more accurate to say that friendship is the best medicine."

"Bringing fun, friendship and the joy of service back into health care."
And friendship with oneself has to be present before we can extend friendship to others, be it patients, family or other loved ones. We ache to know ourselves at the most profound depth - who are we? For this we need to step into the 'laboratory of the mind' - meditation.
