Inspired by her recent work, Sue will introduce an array of compassion-based insights and practices to foster a safe and welcoming environment. Autistic scholar Jan Wozniak, working alongside Sue will share the importance for neurodivergent meditators in savoring moments of joy in a world that is not always accommodating for neurodivergent people.
