Once I asked the man to whom I served my apprenticeship to become a mara’kame, ” How would you describe what healing is to a five year old?” He is an unassuming man. Slight in physical appearance. Deeply perceptive and intelligent. A fabulous sense of humor. He thought for a moment and said ” How would I describe what healing is to a five year old? I would tell her that healing is love.”
