"Norway"       Photo by Joel Anderson


June 2019 President Monthly Ezine

I was quite fortunate and grateful to spend twelve days in May presenting my research in dementia family caregiving in the Centre for Medicine and Aging (SESAM) at the Stavanger University Hospital in Stavanger, Norway; meeting with existing and new collaborators from the SESAM, the University of Exeter, and King's College London; and consulting with SESAM staff regarding media strategy and engaged scholarship. But as with everything in life, it's been the people and the stories that have made it all memorable and have helped to create the good moments, or gode øyeblikk. So whether it has been laughing over a good dinner at Skagen on the harbor, appreciating the opportunities to connect with international colleagues from across Europe in meaningful conversations, walking through Gamle Stavanger, cruising up the fjords, dipping my toes in the North Sea, having my first sip of aquavit, having impromptu conversations about Healing Touch and energy with my Norwegian friends, or wandering through fantastically colored rhododendrons in peak bloom, this trip has been filled with good moments for me that I've been sharing on Twitter. And I'm very grateful to my friends and colleagues in Stavanger for helping me to collect a skattekiste or treasure chest of good moments.

Quarterly Group Read

The read chosen for the second quarter of 2019 is Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst by Robert Sapolsky. Though not always explicitly stated, cellular memory and energetics are woven all through this book, and Dr. Sapolsky deftly explains the biological consequences our environment have on our bodies and behavior.

Online Discussion Groups

I am hosting online Zoom sessions every other month to provide a space for support, connection, and dialogue with me in a small group setting. Use this link to submit your interest in the sessions scheduled for 2019. Dates and more information about the sessions can be found on the online form.

Meditation for June

This video and soundscape remind me of the beauty and feeling of Norway. I think it is a perfect backdrop for reflection as we approach the upcoming solstice.
