Healing is impossible in loneliness; it is the opposite of loneliness. Conviviality is healing.
To be healed we must come with all the other creatures to the feast of Creation.

A doctor, like anyone else who has to deal with human beings … cannot be a scientist;
he is either, like the surgeon, a craftsman, or, like the physician and the psychologist, an artist.
This means that in order to be a good doctor
a man must also have a good character, that is to say,
whatever weaknesses and foibles he may have, he must
love his fellow human beings in the concrete and
desire their good before his own.
- W. H. Auden

Wounding and healing are not opposites. They’re part of the same thing.
It is our wounds that enable us to be compassionate with the wounds of others.
It is our limitations that make us kind to the limitations of other people.
It is our loneliness that helps us to to find other people or to even
know they’re alone with an illness.
― Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D.
