Summary
Lori Arviso Alvord, M.D. (Assistant Professor of Surgery and Associate Dean of Multicultural and Student Affairs, Dartmouth Medical School, Hanover, New Hampshire), the first Navajo woman to become a surgeon, read from her book (The Scalpel and the Silver Bear: The First Navajo Woman Surgeon Combines Western Medicine and Traditional Healing) a passage on a Navajo healing ceremony called the "Night Chant." Dr. Alvord discused how Navajo healing and wellness (especially mental wellness) is based on living in harmony, in balance with all of creation (i.e. with other human relationships, the earth, and the animals), in a manner called the "Beauty Way." Navajo spirituality includes positive mental imagery and the use of art (music, dance, costumes, rugs, jewelry, etc.). In conclusion, Dr. Alvord suggested there are many ways to bring balance, nature, and beauty into many aspects of medical care.
