ADHD Mindfulness program will help heal and optimize your life. You are creative and brilliant, however, prone to procrastinate, be unorganized, live with clutter, easily get distracted, leave tasks unfinished, and forget important commitments. Too many ideas invigorate but hold you back from progress. All of this is due to misunderstood and untrained neurodiversity.
Statistics show about 80% of society is Neurotypical. Hence, their brains function similarly to each other and are different from yours. You don’t learn from natural consequences because your attention lives in the present moment and forgets the moment that just passed. It is hard to keep up with things because the world and conventional systems around you are made by and for the Neurotypicals, not your brain. As a result, it’s as though you constantly fail or do not fit in, feel restless with too much energy or not enough, show up at the last minute, and feel anxious and depressed.
In this course, we educate you and your family about your brain’s unique characteristics, and natural strengths, and help you heal from self-judgment, inner pains, and doubts. You learn Mindfulness tools to improve self-awareness, focus, and take better control of life and relationships. You get to work on rewiring your brain to become more effective and efficient.
This is an eight-series educational and training program with Mindfulness techniques specific to the ADHD nervous system. These Mindfulness, meditation, and other practices are suitable for the way the ADHD brain can absorb. Science indicates Mindful Awareness can reduce worry, anxiety, forgetfulness, impulsive reactions, and hypersensitivity, improving joy, timeliness, memory, and presence. With proper training and practice, you can rewire your brain, and minimize tardiness, fogginess, and confusion. You are naturally present. Learn how to use this natural strength to improve all other aspects of your life. Courses may be taken by themselves or as a program. We highly recommend taking all these courses as the first course offers an overview and some techniques and the following provide opportunities for deeper understanding, practice, and optimization.
