Health knowledge made personal
My name is Daniel Albrant and I'm a doctoral trained and licensed pharmacist with 20+ years of clinical experience. Most of my practice life has been spent caring for the sickest of persons in intensive care units (ICUs). Over the last several years I have been focusing more on end-of-life issues (a very common event in ICU life) and resultant spiritual issues. Since 1996, I have been a health care consultant to many different clients, but have focused on health improvements within the existing health care system. I have found our healthcare system to be broken beyond repair, and without the resources and insight to offer the type of programs that I am now being compelled to provide. It goes without saying, that no health care system can offer the holistic care that can be offered through this type of non-profit approach nor will the system ever truly (in my opinion) address issues of spirituality adequately. Further, I am a trained Stephen Minister and Leader with almost 10 years of leadership experience and caring under this high quality program. This experience has prepared me to be a compassionate advocate for all I serve. Finally, I have developed and implemented new programs and processes throughout my career. I am also a recognized speaker, writer and educator on issues of health and wellness. I write my blog from this perspective, a view which attempts to return spirituality to its rightful place of enabling and empowering health, wellness and wholeness.
My new 501c3 public charity, Possibilities Journey, Inc. [ www.possjrny.org] and its associated blog, exist to help to identify life opportunities (possibilities) and create new imaginings for hope to flower through connection, coherence, agency and blessing. Initiatives for this will include (but not be limited to) empowering healthy behaviors, providing health and wellness education, supporting spiritual growth through healing services and sacred listening, providing support to all persons through small group ministries, training layity to be health and wellness ministers, providing a unique practice setting for training new practitioners of all disciplines, gathering research data on this approach to wholeness, and serving as a model for all spiritual and faith communities to follow.
