Video of Victoria Sweet at Westminster Town Hall Forum

On September 22, 2020, the Westminster Town Hall Forum in Minneapolis shared a live video interview of Victoria Sweet with guest moderator Cathy Wurzer of Minnesota Public Radio and End in Mind.

Below is a recording of the discussion between Victoria Sweet and Cathy Wurzer.

Victoria Sweet is a doctor and professor who advocates for health care to be personal, face-to-face, and attentive to both the body and the soul, a practice she has dubbed “slow medicine.” Her first book, God’s Hotel: A Doctor, a Hospital, and a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Medicine, traces her evolving understanding of the body as “a machine to be fixed” to an older, pre-modern understanding of the body as “a garden to be tended.” Her second book, Slow Medicine: The Way to Healing, explores her insights into medicine as both an art and a science that is relational, personal, even spiritual.
