Many People Feel Lost
When It Comes To Dementia.
This Project is About A New Story
A Story Of Remembering
A Story Of Connection
A Story Of Deep Listening
May peace be with all our loved ones on the journey to remembering in a place of ease and connection.
This is the new story of dementia. A story of Remembering.
Dementia, we have felt it, avoided it, and some have given up hope.
Dementia induces a grief process that can at times extend for years without clarity.
DEMENTIA CAN BE A STORY OF COMING TOGETHER.
The silent illness that creeps up on individuals has stumped health professionals since its inception as to its complex differing forms and sometimes undiagnosable symptoms.
can we still find ways to come together and connect with our loved ones and hear their requests on a deeper level?
The answer in our hearts and now experience is
Yes, we can!
In this audio clip i invite you to hear the initial glimpse of remembering.
Servicing North & Central Vancouver Island, Canada. Travel to and from client destination will be charged at client's expense.
~ I meet with Families or Individuals, preferably with your Loved One present, so we an uncover sources of relational dynamics and behavioural challenges in a safe and objective space, so we can clear trauma and unprocessed grief which frees our relationships up immensely.
COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS & HEALING CIRCLES
~ When we come together with questions, seeking answers, to hear diverse opinions and open up to a child-like curiosity, we never know what Clarity can emerge. I am blessed to hold space for this deeper inquiry to emerge.
ONLINE COURSE OFFERINGS (coming soon)
~ Connect in an online format with others from around the globe who share similar challenges and difficulties in caring or concerning for a Loved One with dementia. We will learn modes of objective listening, hear expert testimonials and interviews from less than mainstream perspectives. Ancient you may call them, as Truth has no time value, Truth is what we are seeking here...
PRIVATE FAMILY SERVICES -finding meaning in our relationship to dementia
Listening is 90% of what one truly requires in order to initiate a greater sense of validation and purpose in this world, to receive their own clarity, that is the Gift of this work.
Far too often we are caught in a subjective mess of bias that prevents us from seeing the Truth of our situations. That is Life.
In my work, I meet with families or individuals and their Loved Ones to get a real-life glimpse at challenges and struggles. Every behavioural and relational challenge has a resolution, that is a given.
When we can sit in an objective space we can see with clarity our connection in all of the stories and trauma that is playing out. Things can then change.
Finding Meaning in Relating to Dementia
When we come together in circle, magic happens.
Creating meaningful, impactful, and safe space for people to consider their relationship to this illness is what we need more than anything in my opinion.
My vision for this is simple.
Give people who are relating to Dementia something to think about, opening up to new perspectives of finding meaning.
When we ask questions, we find meaning.
When we are vulnerable, we become Empowered.
When we are objective, we become Clearer.
When we are Clearer, our connection to the people in our Life makes more sense, it becomes more meaningful.
In this Workshop, we will learn why certain behaviours may be being displayed by your loved one, and its connection to You.
Finding Meaning in Relating to Dementia
This is a new story of Remembering Through Dementia
We are putting together some amazing content with this course, its construction is underway.
Amazing video content, philosophical inquiry and contemplations, live interviews with wisdom keepers, awareness exercises, meditations, creative exercises and so much more!
Let's come together, wherever we are at, to explore the deeper implications of our connection to Dementia and how that may serve us going forward. With Love, Jon.

THIS WORK AND INQUIRY

When we give ourselves permission to express and be heard, we open up new avenues in our self that allow a greater freedom to connect with those we are truly most close with.
When we can investigate the messages our loved ones are communicating with us, in their thoughts, emotions, body language and verbal response, we can be provided with reassurance. Verbally or not, there is clarity and a calling out that in our experience needs to be heard.
In spite of Fear, there is Love, and let us help you evoke Love in this journey through dementia. For all of your loved ones.
SYSTEMS OF WITNESSING AND
When we can experience the rewards of our time spent together, we make an impression and can potentially create more self-belief in our Loved ones that they do have the ability to realize change.
Our loved ones are alive and awake inside, but some of them may have reached states where they are incommunicable.
The sense you may feel that they are alive and awake is the wakefulness of their consciousness. Some would call it the Soul, which I do, some would claim in the Scientific community it is the Electro-Magnetic-Field that surrounds all sentient objects in the Universe, or some in New Age communities may communicate it as the Aura.
Regardless of terminology, like Nature, an intelligence exists that is always communicating gifts of clarity, growth, health and connection.
Our schedule of visitation and therapy will be mutually agreed to after commencing work. Multiple sessions are advised to view progress over time.
NATURE, WITHIN AND WITHOUT GUIDES US TO WHERE WE TRULY FEEL BELONGING, HEARD, CONNECTED, AND AT PEACE.
We will connect with Nature.
Nature lies within and without. It is our common language, it cannot be fully suppressed as Nature is impacting us all around and we cannot help but access it once in a while, even if we are not conscious of it.
It speaks within us and it speaks to us all around in all of the sentience in the entire Universe. Loved ones suffering from dementia are not exempt from this. Some would say, I would agree, that these loved ones are close to the other side of our earthly veil, they are closer to the ancestral realms that have guided and supported humanity forever. What are they actually experiencing?
How do I connect to the new story of Remembering in my family?
Our work simply is based on having conversations and following our intuition as to questions to ask, placement positions to assume in relativity to one another, forms of talk-therapy and sound therapy, we even allow our clients to dream what it is that being communicated for enhanced clarity.
When our loved ones can communicate verbally we are given even more clues as to either what they need to communicate and why it is being said, however verbal communication is never required to communicate with one's true essence.
FEES FOR SERVICE
As in Nature, I freely share our gifts with those who wish to receive them and offer this service using a PWYV (Pay What You Value) Model.
On average, people have generally paid me $150 CDN on average for those who need an estimate. I am open to more if you choose to express that way or less if that is your only way you feel you can commit.
For a session of my time in this work, before, during and after, we generally set aside 2 hours for a session to allow for integrating any realizations back into our day-to-day, so I feel $150 on average is reasonable. Travel expense will be covered by the client.
With this model, I also open up to donations for anyone with access to financial resources willing to share and invest in a brighter future. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for continuing to support me :)
