My Hippocratic Oath
I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:
I will honor the knowledge and legacy of the wisdom-holders who I follow, whose understanding comes bearing witness to the best and the worst in this world.
I will offer to the changemakers, all opportunities to make a difference for their healing and the healing of the world.
I will remember that this work is ongoing, an unbroken chain of transformation and evolution throughout history.
I will act in partnership with all people, with the heartfelt belief that we all desire to make a difference in the world.
I will put the most vulnerable and unseen at the center, knowing that lifting up their voices and experiences expands this world.
I will be fiercely and radically loving, leaning into the faith that each heartbreak creates more space into which abundance can flow.
I will listen for and call forth the unique gifts and resources people wish to contribute.
And I will remember that abundance and healing begins with my own self-care, allowing music, dance, meditation, nutrition, and fitness to multiply my own gifts.
Most especially, I will be unstoppable, knowing that the healing of the world occurs one story, one dream, and one action at a time.
If I am able to uphold this oath, may I reap the fruits of healing, abundance, and connection I work to harvest for and with others.
And may I become a wisdom-holder for others who come after me to remember and celebrate.
