Guided Meditations For All

Finding creative ways to each person's unique path to mindfulness

sue camh pic .jpg

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 focuses much of her work these days on supporting mindfulness in neurodiverse communities and caregivers. 

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
