When learning to play the didgeridoo, one of the first skills to master is that of circular breathing.
Circular breathing is a technique that allows the player to maintain an expulsion of air into the instrument whilst at the same time breathing in.
It has the effect of allowing continuity in a harmony that would otherwise be interrupted, jolty, discontinuous.
Nurses are busy people.
They epitomise perpetual motion.
But in doing, they also need to listen, observe, engage.
If they can’t do both, then the problems they solve are merely their own, not the patient’s.
Excellence in care!
And it will make you....
A healer as well as a nurse.
