Start the New Year in Mindfulness with the SLN

Let the SLN help you and your siblings get 2021 started on the right foot! Join us for our second self-paced mindfulness course starting New Years Day! And sign up for the second live session in our mindfulness series on January 19th, 2021! More information and a link to registration below!

Learn mindfulness strategies to help cope with stress, enhance your relationships, and improve your overall health and well-being. This virtual mindfulness program is developed for adults with DD and their siblings.

You can participate in the mindfulness series by learning through the self-paced course and/or participating in the live Zoom sessions.  You can login to the self-paced course at any time convenient for you to learn strategies to enhance your life. Then, you can connect with others in a community of learning during the live Zoom sessions.

While we encourage you to complete the self-paced course before attending a live Zoom session, it is not required.

You can participate in all 3 topics or choose one or two.  You do not need to participate in session 1 in order to participate in the session 2 or 3.

We encourage siblings to participate with their brothers and sisters with disabilities, though it is not required.  Share this information with our siblings with and without disabilities and make it a whole family affair.  Even if you live in different locations, you can all participate remotely and encourage each other to learn and maintain mindfulness practices.

Groups are welcome to participate, such as friends who live together at a group home or other group setting.  Service providers can register and support groups to participate.

This project is a partnership of the Sibling Leadership Network, the Cognition Behavior and Mindfulness Clinic at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Illinois Self-Advocacy Alliance, and The Arc of Illinois. Funding provided in part by NCHPAD.
