Jaisa Sulit

Bio: Jaisa Sulit is a registered occupational therapist who has been practicing in Ontario since 2004. She is also a teacher who has held instructor and lecturer status at the University of Toronto's Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy from 2005 to 2015.

While driving a motorcycle in 2010, Jaisa got into an accident that left her with a spinal cord injury and paralysis from the waist down. As a therapist-turned-patient, Jaisa integrated both traditional and non-traditional ways of healing. She completed a mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) program that helped her to cope with stress, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. Learning more than how to walk again, she learned how to reinhabit her body in ways she had never done before. Jaisa has gone on to become a qualified MBSR teacher through the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and has been teaching mindfulness to students, patients, and clinicians across Canada since 2012.
