Description: In the 25 years since it was coined, the term “neurodiversity” has come to describe a wonderfully complicated set of beliefs. Our collective understanding of neurodiversity-related concepts holds varied, and sometimes intense, opinions and emotions. With all the potential inclusivity offered by the movement to embrace the umbrella of processing differences among humans, we still have to unshackle ourselves from ableist entrenchment in order to fully embrace the freedom offered by an understanding of neurodiverse ideals. This 3-day, in person study group for healers will address these concepts and provide opportunities for exploration through experiential activities and guided dialogue.

Who Should Attend: Healers (all neurotypes) who work in a variety of settings serving neurodivergent children and adults which may include (but is not limited to) educators, mental health practitioners, medical professionals, case managers, clergy, etc.
