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. 

If you are interested in finding out more about the group, including our current session times, please contact:
