Second Meet Up!
We'll be watching episodes 2 & 3 of How to Keep a Mummy!
Adolescence is a time when youths encounter new challenges in personal identity and interpersonal relationships. Autism spectrum disorders impact an individual’s ability to engage with his or her peers and the environment around them. The additional challenges presented to those with ASD make these transitions even more difficult, leading to increased comorbid mood disorders such as depression. Recognizing and addressing mental health disorders in autistic adolescents is challenging and research is limited, but understanding the connections between ASD and depression can allow us to minimize depressive symptoms.
Join an interactive discussion centered around developing our understanding of autism spectrum disorders and how the symptoms overlap with those of depressive disorder and other mood disorders. Together, we will address difficulties that arise at each stage of a child’s development and discuss ways to make life’s greatest transitions easier.

Relax and melt away stress with the power of Breath and Sound Meditation. In meditation the mind-body system experiences deep rest as it transitions from an active state to a more relaxed and restorative state. While there are many forms of meditation, sound meditation is a practice used for centuries for physical healing, clarity of mind and deep meditation. In this form of meditation we will simply connect with the breath and soothing sound vibrations of Alchemy Crystal bowls to relax the mind and body. Join this 8 week sound meditation program to quiet your mind and learn to switch off the external noises and connect with your inner self. Please register for each individual class.
