The 2002 annual Spirituality & Healing in Medicine conference convened in Boston in December. Two new sponsors—The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences and The George Washington Institute for Spirituality and Health—joined with Harvard Medical School and the Mind/Body Medical Institute to support this year's event.
When Honor Hill told how a young woman was healed of deafness through the power of forgiveness, one could hear a pin drop. A Christian Science healer, Ms. Hill's riveting eyewitness account of this event, before a packed audience of more than 500, put an exclamation point on this year's Spirituality & Healing in Medicine conference. The conference theme was "The Importance of Forgiveness."
One thing came through loud and clear: Forgiveness heals.
