Love Is Listening: Dementia Without Loneliness Screening

  • Gainesville First United Methodist Church 2780 Thompson Bridge Road Gainesville United States (map)

October 24 / 6:30pm / Great Room

From “Love Is Listening: Dementia Without Loneliness will open your heart to a new way of being with people with dementia-a way that turns awkward to flow, isolation to intimacy, and loneliness to companionship. Although 70% of us know someone with dementia, many still struggle to connect with those in this condition. This documentary begins a journey from fear to presence.”

From “Love Is Listening: Dementia Without Loneliness brings globally recognized authorities in the arts, science, and spiritual traditions together to reveal how we can move from fear to being with people with dementia–indeed, with anyone who disturbs us. This documentary marks a new day in our understanding of what it means to truly listen.”

Join us for a screening of the film followed by conversation with producer Michael Verde. Questions? Contact Rev. Carolyn Clifton.
