'Resilience' Opening A Success

Posted by Gregory Tapler (Creator)

I am completely humbled by my experience with Resilience.  The reception was more than I could have imagined.  The story I heard that touched me the greatest was when I arrived before everyone else to ensure the show was ready.  The woman at the front desk told me that the residents were sitting in the room staring at the images for what seemed to be hours...saying nothing - smiling - crying. 

I like to think they were remembering times of old...memories of loved ones; of happy times; of friends.  I am aware of the grief they also experience and am fully open to holding that space for them to heal.

I created a short video as a THANK YOU to all of you who supported me in this.

Blessings and light,
