The teachings tell us that the world needs us tremendously, but that we have to start with ourselves. In service-oriented careers like medicine, striking that balance can be a particular challenge. How do we live our lives and lean into service in ways that nourish and continue to wake us up, allowing us to meaningfully and sustainably be there for others? This will be a personal reflection on the roles of dharma practice, and of unique programs such as Shambhala Sun Summer Camp, in providing a rich, gentle training for living a life in service.
