Healer Archetype

July 15, 2013 , ,

Healers have obstacles to overcome in learning to practice their arts.  Today many must endure heavy hazing in the hospital residency period to become an MD.  The apparent cruelty is set up to show the prospect what to expect when entering a medical career.  Overworked and tired, those who survive will become the next generation of MD’s.  The training may not include any advise on self care or setting a healthy example.  Empathy is not taught, but acquired.  The mythical Chrion represents the fortitude and wisdom required to heal the bodies or souls of others.  The positive healer uses energy and talents wisely to benefit everyone.  The shadow healer harms others, sometimes unwittingly. The present system of health care in the United States qualifies, in my opinion, as a wounded healer that has yet to acquire empathy for the patient.
