Dementia: A Great Break

I will be heading home after breakfast today..  Madhyamaka has been a great place for respite: lovely people and great meditation sessions.

The news from home has been good with Maureen being very settled. It will be inuteresting to see how I’m received on my return.

Seeing the progress Dorde has made since my last visit has been heartening and inspiring.  He suffered serious brain damage from falling out of a tree but continues to make progress with his speech impediment and his mobility. His teaching on meditation are as effective as any I have experienced.
