Spirituality, Health and Healing: The difference between the logic of science and the logic of practice.
Synopsis: The logic of science and the logic of practice are different, and in many ways, incompatible. What difference does this difference actually make? When we translate scientific theory into practice, it does not account for the holistic meaning context of practice, the many situations that don't quite fit the theory, the circumstances that make fit impossible, or the fact that practice is a living, embodied experience, not an abstract concept. We will not abandon science, but we will explore together the life-giving and theory producing knowing of the logic of practice and how temporary breakdowns actually help us to understand the logic of practice and reconnect with the intentions, hopes and dreams that brought us all into health care in the first place.
