On Sunday, March 24, join us for tea after service and meet the resilient author of “From Mountaineer to Stroke Survivor”, Remy Bernier. Remy started a new life in 2006 due to a stroke. Prior to his accident, he was thriving as an aspiring mountain guide. Now, the right hemisphere of Remy’s body is paralyzed, and his coordination, speech and vision have been affected. Remy has been attending the Calgary Buddhist Temple for several years and we are fortunate that he is an active member of our Sangha. He continues to raise the bar in everything he does, and he is an inspiration to the world.
This is an opportunity to learn about and from his experiences. “Is suffering a severe stroke the end of the world, or the beginning of a different kind of life?”
