A descriptive piece drawing on the author’s circle based group dmt sessions details the relational qualities and approaches to the work. Reflective vignettes from other authors’ personal experiences with people with dementia set the tone for this work that is described as soul connecting and enlivening. Working within an aged care home setting, the author discusses both the practicalities of working in this setting and the ways-of-being that supports the goals of dmt for this program. (pp 28-31)
