View Autism from Spiritual Perspective

I am really delighted that I shall be leading a 15-mins Brain Yoga session in a public community event called “Walk For Autism” next Saturday, 8th November from 7.30 am – 12.00pm at PathLight School. This event is organised by Youth Executive Committee from People Association Ang Mo Kio GRC (Group Representation Constituency) & Seng Kang SMC (Single Member Constituency). The aim of this event is to educate the public about autism and bring awareness about how we can support these children and their parents.

Fundamentally, we are all spiritual beings having a human experience, we can only be understood from the space of Wholeness.
