The human tragedy story can be so overwhelming that it obliterates the soul journey story that is also present and far more powerful. Discovering it through my mother’s journey with dementia makes my own spirit more joyful.
On Sunday, September 18, 2016 I had the distinct honour of attending the Gift of the Hit book launch and, invited by Peter Davison, reading an excerpt from my Chapter in the book. The video is 5 minutes. There is the version that Peter Davison recorded and edited here and the one my son took, which is less steady, here. My voice stays remarkably strong as I relay the minute we left my mother behind in long term care, her confusion, what it was like to walk the corridors to get to her room, the tragedy of rapid deterioration and the soul story that began to fully show up when I reached her consciousness in a meditative state.

Really inspiring and made me even more determined to work hard towards my goal of raising funds for Alzheimer’s Research UK. Thank you x
Thank you for your determination and your focus. Good luck with the fund raising effort and thank you for your reflections here.
Beautiful…thank you. Watching it, I foresaw a time in my life when I will remember this.
No words for you – just lots of love. ❤
