On this journey of life, we all have moments of fear, doubt, loneliness, and disconnection. We might question our purpose or seek answers in places and things that don't serve us. As a result, we end up feeling more disconnected than before, suffering from a kind of emotional and spiritual heart disease. However, suffering can be transforational leading to powerful and long-lasting healing.
For over thirty-five years, Dr. Nuño healed patients' hearts. As one of America's former leading cardiac surgeos, Dr. Nuno dedicated his life to repair the heart muscle and extending people's lives. Fixing "broken" hearts gave him a unique and intimate view into the poser of the heart. Even coming face to face with death and losing patients, there is a beauty that can exist even in loss.
The Spirit of the Heart is a collection of heart-warming stories that resonate at the core of our humanness. This book offers readers a unique blend of his perspective-that of doctor, of patient, of father, and son- of teacher of students and student of life. He graciously offers the insights he has gained from occupying a front-row seat at some of life's most real and raw moments. These tender stories teach us about what it means to be human, to be connected to others, to love, to live, to forgive.
