Guided Meditations For All 

We are a neurodiverse world, and we all need different mindfulness practices. Some of our brains are wired to benefit from concrete, sense based meditations. Some of us benefit from using imagery in our meditations. Try the different practices and choose which one is best for you.

Concrete Guided Meditations - Plain Language

Many autistic adults and those of us who like concrete language tend to use these.

Three S's - Sight, Sound, Sensation

This 5 minute meditation can be used anywhere you are. Feel free to make it yours and use these grounding senses anytime. This can be useful for anxiety. 

Accessible Mindfulness Tools

Accessibility is different for everyone, and it is impossible to create one tool that will be right for everyone. In this practice Sue talks about accessiblity for the first few minutes, and leads a practice.

This walking meditation practice is to be done in your home. The tools here have been used in our CAMH Azrieli Mindfulness research groups. Please adapt to your needs if you use a mobility device or chair.

Sue Hutton started her path to mindfulness in 1985. She did professional training with Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and has since then taught over a thousand people in a wide range of communities.

Sue's career as a social worker and work in disability advocacy allow her to add a special perspective to traditional mindfulness techniques.

 

MAKING MINDFULNESS ACCESSIBLE

"I've taught mindfulness in developmental services, in the education system, in cancer care services, and in the prison system. I also lead clinical groups with autistic adults and their caregivers for research in mindfulness for neurodevelopmental disabilities at CAMH.

Teaching those with a disability, or cancer, caregivers, educators, and health professionals with the lens of my advocacy perspective has shown me the importance of making mindfulness accessible to anyone".                    

~ Sue Hutton
