24 Jun 3rd Annual Memory Bridge Retreat
Memory Bridge hosted their third annual 5-day training retreat at the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Center in Bloomington, Indiana. This year’s retreat attracted participants from all over the world, including, the U.K. and Australia. The retreat provided 12 participants an experience-centered learning journey that positioned people with dementia in the roles of teacher, guide, and companion. In addition to the one-to-one and group visits with the Buddies, the training incorporated presentation, daily meditation, I-Land mapping, literature discussions, drumming, and peer-to-peer and intragroup sharing.
