A Caregivers Guide to Harmony
The Dance of Caring explores the wisdom of circles through the Native American Hoop Dance, a sacred expression of the beauty and fluidity of life and the interconnectedness we all share. This book is an invitation to caregivers to be expansive in their own being and give care from a place of abundance, strength, and harmony.
“Wow! How powerful! This is an outstanding book that can bring inspiration to anyone in a caregiving role.”

Kathy Douglas, nurse and filmmaker, has created an in-depth exploration of the complexity, challenges, sorrows and joys of being a nurse, seen through the voices and lives of nurses today. The film shows what it means to be a nurse in today’s world and the many roles nurses play from the front line to the board-room. The world of healthcare is entering a time of tremendous change and by deepening the understanding of nursing we can assure that the role and value of nursing is well represented in that change. We are striving for a future where policy makers and healthcare leaders are making well informed decisions, where the public has a better understanding of nurses (beyond TV and news perceptions), where nurses are inspired towards excellence and diversity of roles, and where others are inspired to join the profession of nursing.
