Meditation Group for People with Aphasia/ Stroke
A Meditation Group for People with Aphasia/Stroke has been run at the Health and Wellness Centre since 2018, led by Dr Britta Biedermann. The group is mainly run as a community service but has also contributed to valuable research at Curtin.
The goal for attendees of the group is to find calmness in stressful and overwhelming situations and to find a break in the midst of the daily everyday life and a break from the verbal communication people with aphasia sometimes find challenging.
Other aims of the group include:
- Learning to meditate as a new skill and finding out what meditation technique works best for each individual
- Learning meditation techniques including body scan, breath count and awareness of sounds that present around us
- Potential contributions to Aphasia and Speech Pathology research at Curtin
The Meditation Group for People with Aphasia/ Stroke meets for 1 hour weekly over the semester, with attendees joining both in-person and online. Times and days are subject to change.
