Neurodiversity and Mindfulness: Making mindfulness accessible to allMar 30, 2022
It’s never anyone’s fault when mindfulness doesn’t work for them. Without considering our own and others neurodiversity when practicing mindfulness we might be causing unnecessary challenges and even harm, limiting the transformative potential of mindfulness.

Featured Speaker: Sue Hutton MSW/RSW
Sue Hutton MSW/RSW started her formal path in mindfulness training in 1985. Sue's 30+ year career as a social worker and concentration on disability advocacy allows her to add a special perspective to traditional mindfulness techniques. Sue's specialized focus is on mindfulness & neurodiversity and accessibility. Sue has had the privilege of teaching over a thousand people mindfulness in a wide range of communities - from the disability community, cancer care, education settings and more. Sue completed Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) intensive for leaders in 2007, and has since modified the MBSR tools in research with the CAMH Azrieli Adult Neurodevelopmental Centre programs for autistic adults and caregivers. In Sue's eyes, each person brings their perfect and unique self to mindfulness and deserves an accessible path to learning the practices. Sue focuses the majority of her work these days on supporting mindfulness in neurodiverse communities - their support staff and caregivers.
