We arrived on Monday, March 7th–a day late, due to a plane breakdown in Rochester that forced us to miss our flight over. After a night in Newark and some fancy footwork, we managed to get another flight out on Sunday, via Stockholm.
Taking the train to Middlefart on the island of Funen, we were warmly greeted at the Brøgården inn and conference center, meeting up with our friends, Eden Denmark coordinators Karin Dahl and Aase Porsnose, and UK coordinators June Burgess and Paul Bailey. We started with a bit of “convivium” (good food and pastry!):
The Eden Networking conference was attended by about 65 Eden Associates from all over Denmark. Each day’s meeting is traditionally ushered in by a song:
I spoke about my dementia work before dinner, and Paul added his thoughts on the benefits of Eden for enlightened care of people with dementia. June and Paul joined me for a discussion panel afterward.
We then collapsed into bed before day 2 (next post).
