Dr. Lichtenstein believes that education, like medicine, is an art. He views education as a co-creation in which everyone is a student on a journey of self-discovery. He believes this process pertains to that territory we call the "self" and our relationship with  others and the world. It is Dr. Lichtenstein's deepest wish to facilitate a safe, respectful and supported environment where everyone feels invited to participate in active, playful and joyful discussion, learning and self-reflection.
