Suicides, the health profession and dentistry

Chaired by Neil Gamble this conversation with Dr Rachel Hall, Dr Rachel Mascord and Rebecca Asquith ponders the subject of suicides.

  • How can it be that there are so many suicides in the world today?
  • Why is the youth of New Zealand, ostensibly a peaceful, wealthy country with an amazing sporting pedigree, leading (by a long way) the suicide rates of all other countries?
  • Why does the health profession, that we turn to for health and wellbeing leadership, have so many suicides, disproportionately more than the public?
  • What is it about dentistry that also tops many of the suicide leagues?

These and related matters are discussed by four people who have been developing a way of living that is different from most of humanity – a way of life that is based on the experiences of The Ageless Wisdom and the teachings of Serge Benhayon; a way of life that is based on Self-Care and of serving a universal purpose.
