Facing life/death human experiences every day, nurses confront unexplained phenomena which do not conform to common explanatory scientific models. This collected work includes short vignettes written by nurses who answered the call-out by Jean Watson to share their profound nursing miracles and mysteries. It acts as a forum where miracles and mysteries can be shared and honored, and to highlight “unknowns;” allowing for the reality of miracles to come back into our life and world.

When we [nurses] are in the presence of patients who entrust their care to us, we may be knowingly or unknowingly entering very sacred spiritual space.” Cynthia Holle

“This wonderful book shares with each of us the power of love and compassion to change lives.” James R. Doty, M.D. Professor of Neurosurgery and New York Times bestselling author.

There is nothing else to say, other than to invite you to read, appreciate, bow down, and relish the deliciousness of life’s wondrous unknowns – that can only be considered a miracle.” Jean Watson

Miracles and Mysteries is a vivid glimpse into the daily life of nurses. These accounts show why nursing is the most admired profession in our society, and why nurses’ key attributes — compassion, empathy, love, and professional skills — are qualities everyone should aspire to.” Larry Dossey, MD Author:  One Mind:  How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
