This guide is based on my experiences volunteering and working with people with special needs since 1995, and then developing my own disabilities in 2003. I began practicing mindfulness at that time as a way of coping and found the practices immensely helpful. I also discovered unique challenges to accessing traditional meditation practices, and very few available resources.
Mindfulness practices offer such gifts; I hope the guide helps support you and others in practice.
Many thanks to all those who have supported and encouraged me on this path. A big thanks to Devin for encouraging me to write this, and to Erik, Jan, Sujata, Sue Z, Kathleen, Dainei, Deirdre and Maddy for feedback in the writing process.
