Dates: Tuesdays, 19 April - 21 June
Time: 10am - 11am
Target Audience: Autistic individuals & families from Scotland (18+)
A holistic mindful lifestyle that incorporates mindful stillness, mindful movement (chi-gong & yoga), body, mind and emotional attention, compassion, healing and healthy diet, relationships, learning and community, can directly address and counteract the negative impacts of autism and modern living. As a mindfulness group facilitator, Jonny Drury, himself diagnosed with Asperger’s and ADHD, intuitively addresses the needs of the group participants in a semi-structured way, using guided mindfulness meditation as the vehicle to self-discovery, healing and wholeness. As a regular group and solo practice, encouraged via remote learning and direct communication available with the facilitator, the benefits of a strengths-focussed mindful lifestyle aim to reduce the impact of stress, isolation, confusion and fragmentation.
The 10-week series will be themed around ‘TBC’ and themed sessions will consist of a facilitator’s talk on the various aspects above, a guided meditation and a Q&A style section.
