In the times of Corona, disinfection and hygiene are again becoming the focus of general interest. The population is encouraged to wash their hands and spray rooms with disinfectants. This means: We are fighting the virus. It's like war - we focus on wiping out the enemy. We want to survive ourselves. This is good and normal.
Monastery medicine guides us to a deeper dimension of life and our body. It teaches us not only to fight. It focuses on the good. In this it resembles nature. Because even a tree concentrates on producing good fruit. It does not have any focus on anything bad.
Monastery medicine had no technical examinations and no medical laboratory. It has a different approach to the body. It has a very differentiated grid of perception: see - hear - smell - taste - touch. Every perception opens an access to healing. Perception with the senses is like to go through a door just into the heart.
