Mindfulness for Autism
Dates: Tuesdays, 17 January - 21 March 2023 (excluding 14 February)
Time: 10am - 11am
Target Audience: Autistic individuals & their families in Scotland (18+)

Mindfulness for Autism is a strengths-focused mindfulness approach that provides recovery and counteracts the negative sensory impact of the world for autistic adults and their carers. It also aims to reduce the impact of stress, isolation and fragmentation in autistic people and family members/carers of autistic people and aims to break this negative cycle, helping people to live a more self-aware, empowered and fulfilling life.

Topics include:
· Mindful communication
· Sensory sensitivities
· Mindfulness and emotions
· Mindful relationships
· Self-care and compassion
· Masking and the authentic self

The facilitated group dialogue part of each session is important because thinking, experiences and stories are shared, in order to create a cohesive community of mindfulness friends. As experienced facilitators, we intuitively address the needs of participants in a semi-structured way, making our events a constructive setting for autistic people who normally find gatherings problematic.
