The month of February evokes thoughts of couples, roses, chocolate, date nights, and romance. We want to impress, spoil, and dote on loved ones. During this time it’s important to remember that real love starts within. I see February as a time for self-reflection, growth, and change—a time to connect with who we are, who we want to be, and feeling comfortable in our own skin. This inner work is what illuminates our outer beauty.
Ubuntu articulates a basic understanding, caring, respect and compassion for others. Ubuntu is a belief in a universal bond of sharing that unites all of humanity - the conviction that no person can be truly full while his neighbor remains hungry. It represents a world-view that sees humanity as a web of family, rather than a mass of individuals. This philosophy affirms that a person is a person through other people, that we are all related, interdependent and connected to each other. This is similar to what we know as compassion, compassion for ourselves, our families, our community, the global community and the earth.

What is spiritual practice? Furthermore, do you have one? Simply put, I define spiritual practice as something you do every single day that draws you deeper into who you really are by connecting you with your divine self. Please don't be put off by the word spiritual here! Spiritual doesn't have to entail -- though it often does -- meditation cushions, prayer beads, chant books, yoga mats or any other such paraphernalia. A spiritual practice might be baking, gardening, running, knitting, playing piano, painting, hiking, meditating, golfing, doing yoga, tai chi or calligraphy. It is not so much about the form but about the profound and connective quality of the time spent within it.
When I went to medical school, nobody ever taught me that medicine was a spiritual practice - but it is. Or at least, in Pink Medicine, it will be. You might not think so. After all, philosophers like Descartes have been perpetuating the notion of mind-body dualism, suggesting that body, mind, and spirit have absolutely nothing to do with each other. But I beg to differ.
