2017 Memory Bridge Retreat
The 5th annual Memory Bridge Training Retreat, co-sponsored with the Memory Bridge Foundation, will be held June 1 - 6 at the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center in Bloomington, Indiana. Participants from across the world share in 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.
