    Abstract

    The sub title of this book, “The search for mindful dialogues” forms the focus of this chapter. The main title, “Community-based healthcare”, gives the context through which we have examined the concept and practice reality of mindful dialogues. In this chapter we are linking the research Diane conducted on mindful dialogues with other research Joy has been leading for some time with Diane and several others, about practice wisdom. (Block quotes in italics below, are derived from the latter research program to add to the many quotes in the book from Diane’s mindfulness thesis.)
