Olivia Ames Hoblitzelle will share discoveries she made with her husband Harrison as they traveled the long road of his dementia. Both long time Buddhist meditators and teachers, Olivia and “Hob” made the decision to approach his diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease through the lens of the Buddhist concept of mindfulness. Ms. Hoblitzelle will offer spiritual insights from their unique journey as well as give practical suggestions that will help us minister more effectively to persons living with dementia and their caregivers. Her acclaimed book, Ten Thousand Joys and Ten Thousand Sorrows has been recommended by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and has received several awards including the Gold Medal: Independent Publisher Book Award. Olivia is an author, therapist and teacher. She is now focusing on elder issues, spirituality and conscious aging.
