About Dr Mel & the SquidMinders

You’re here?! Welcome to our Patreon Page!! 🦑🧠We’re making all sort of experiments here, with squid brains, comics for blind and sighted, living libraries and lots of other crazy projects. We’re excited to share them with YOU! We’re very excited. Enthusiastic. A little manic perhaps. This is some of the best work of our lives so we’re thrilled to be inviting you in to play in our pool!

ow can you SQUID your Squid Brain?
Many of our most popular experiments (the ones we really want to send you!) are designed to help people develop mindfulness and situational-awareness habits. Kids, parents and adults can transform their thinking and reactions by learning how to see and work with the squid-like brains we all have.

SQUID is a 5-step method for turning on analytical thinking, anytime something seems not wrong:

Can you Stopand ask Questions to better Understand?Can you Imagineyour choices, then Decideon a plan?

The squid brain we want to SQUID represents our whole "nerved out" nervous system, which runs on reactive autopilot most of the time.

We’ve got a quick story to introduce the squid brain and teach people how to manage it better: “You and Your Squid Brain ~ Can You Think Before You Ink?”

In two minutes, this poem can help change perspectives on how to work with our primal and reactive brains, the driving forces behind everything we say and do.

Every kid and adult facing emotional distress can benefit. Seriously. Check it out and see what you think. We’d love to send you a copy and can make personalized videos for anyone you’d like.
