Transcript – Getting to know Dad
What’s your relationship like with your Dad?
I started to think about mine when I realised that my Dad was becoming quite elderly and infirm. It hit home to me that if I didn’t do something about it soon I wasn’t going to have much time left with him on this earth. It might be too late. I didn’t want my later life filled with regret by not having something about this.
But I was too late. He developed dementia and a few years later he died.
However, my meditation practice has still been of huge benefit to me because I have used it to investigate the differences that we still had between us.
