Breath Anchors in Neurodiversity-Informed Mindfulness - Interactive Workshop

member events Jan 24, 2024

Practice new techniques and learning about single and combined breath anchors in neurodiversity-informed breath practices. Engage in sharing in a combined learning and community discussion forum. 

Our first workshop we will explore practices developed in the science-backed research on neurodiversity and mindfulness.  We will experience a practice and observe how we respond to a set of single or combined breath anchors. These are tools developed in the research being conducted at the CAMH Azrieli Adult Neurodevelopmental Centre.  Participants will then have an opportunity to share with the broader community in breakout rooms how we find the tools, and explore other ways of increasing accessibility in our mindfulness groups and practices. 

  • Learning: Deepen the practice of neurodiversity-informed breath tools and share knowledge with community in group discussion 
  • Practice: Explore single or combined breath anchor techniques 

LIVE Session: Tuesday, Feb 13th, 2024 - 5:00 - 6:30 PM ET / 2:00 - 3:30 PM PT / 10:00 - 11:30 PM GMT / 11:00 PM - 12:30 AM CEST
