This book delves into the concept of caring for the caregivers. Many healthcare professionals become exhausted and burned out in their work; creating space for themselves seems to be the only way to prevent their caring roles from doing them more harm than good. Also addressed are the complications between professionals and lay care givers as both groups become separated. This can result in the division of knowledge and practices. It is this separation that is addressed in this book. The book claims that without the right relationship between professionals and care givers, sacred space won't reveal itself. Without awareness for the presence of the sacred space, true healing and caring cannot emerge.
