FACES 2018 Conference Program:

Friends And Caregivers, Encephalitis Survivors (F.A.C.E.S.) will enjoy interacting and learning from each other as well as from the following presenters.

Anita Cheung Anita says, “meditation saved my life.” When still in university, she struggled with anxiety and depression. When her mental health problems caused her to hit rock bottom, Anita was referred to a therapist who taught her the meditation tools that made it possible for her to manage her own mental health.
Coming out of that experience, Anita wanted to share the practice with as many people as possible, in hopes to make a difference to at least one person. In partnership with a clinical psychologist and a local business person, Anita started Moment Meditation – a beautiful meditation studio located in the heart of Vancouver Canada. She says, “
We base the Moment Meditation method on an understanding of the brain and how meditation can support it."

She consults with patients in their diagnosis or recovery journey to provide guidance. She is also the author of a book called “Brain Wreck.” In the past two years, Becky has played an instrumental role in developing guidelines for an encephalitis rehabilitation toolkit with infectious disease, neurology and academia across the globe.
