Thank you for mentioning that book. I'm going out to get it from my local library today. I've been scouring information to help my father and that book sounds like a good source. (He has trouble with walking and handwriting due to some undiagnosed neurodegeneration.) I really want to get him into a pool, but that isn't likely to happen. That's a shame since the pool would challenge his systems in a good and gentle way while maybe providing a greater sense of ease and freedom.

Apparently the mindfulness and thoughtfulness of the TI way can lead to better living. ^_-
