It can’t be easy to be healed in a soulless concrete box with characterless windows, inhospitable corridors and  purely functional wards. The spirit needs healing as well as the body.

THE SPACE BETWEEN

Here is an e-book of annotated images taken from my talk on Healing Spaces from The Space Between 2 Conference of The Highland Hospice Oct 09. it mainly sets the scene by exploring the healing space within us and between us, and then links this to the external space around us - the latter is then followed up in more details elsewhere on this page.
