2016 Memory Bridge Retreat
We're pleased to announce the 4th annual Memory Bridge Training Retreat, co-sponsored with the Memory Bridge Foundation. The 2016 training will be held June 17 - 22 at the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center in Bloomington, Indiana. We accepted applications from people across the world who share our dedication to ending the emotional and social isolation of people with dementia through learning how to be with them in spiritually sustaining ways. The design of the retreat is based on Memory Bridge’s I Am A Bridge Dementia Immersion Training, an experience-centered learning model that positions people with dementia in the roles of teacher, guide, and companion. To learn more about the retreat, you can visit the Memory Bridge or contact Jane Harlan-Simmons, who leads our part of the project.
