Alive and Being Present

2 Comments March 16, 2009 / Posted in Uncategorized

Walking along the beach on the eastern coast of the Indian Ocean and the western shore of the Australian continent, the breeze I felt most likely originated in Africa. Maybe not. However, the thought was one of how everything is connected. This because of that. Here because of there. The feel of my feet sinking into the wet sand. It’s good to be alive and present. And on your next breath, what are you aware of?

    Had the same experience at the same place two days ago, what a coincidence!

    Having seen the film and listened to the audio conmapion .something strikes me as unique about this film experience, as opposed to other resources I have ever seen. It is that the genuine and very clever invitation is to imagine myself and my loved ones in this situation, to acknowledge and understand what I want and need and to translate this into what society and care homes must provide because those are also universal needs. It has personalised it for me, made it harder to ignore and easier to perceive that’s the beauty of this approach. It will be transformative when used as part of training with teams who are open to really living the core values for quality care. It is clear, through Andy’s consideration of what this actually means in practice why and how these values are essential and I applaud Andy and the team at Frameworks 4 Change for the skillful way they have addressed this often elusive area.
