Adapting Meditations for Special Needs

adapting meditations…so they fit purrfectly.

This guide is based on my experiences volunteering and working with people with special needs since 1995, and having my own disabilities since 2003. I began practicing mindfulness at that time as a way of coping and found it immensely helpful. I also discovered unique challenges to meditation practices, and few available resources.

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 and Maddy for feedback in the writing process.
