Dear Friends,

We all know someone who is hyper, impatient, talks a lot, can’t listen well, can’t finish or even start a task, and gets reactive fast.

These are some of challenges that teens and adults with ADHD have to deal with day after day.

Depression, anxiety, reactivity, and impulsive behavior are mostly due to not understanding how this brain type works, not fitting in, and not knowing how to leverage the strengths and brilliance of this unique nervous system.

Adults with ADHD are not constantly late because they don’t care! It’s because their brain doesn’t have a relationship with time.

They don’t procrastinate because they are lazy or irresponsible. It’s because their attention has lost its anchor or interest.

They’re not distracted because they’re inattentive. It’s because they live in the present moment.

They just don’t have the proper training to use their strengths and live in a neurotypical world. Their brilliance and creativity is hindered by lacking this training.

Our MLO courses educate and train this brilliant brain through tailored mindfulness practices, designed for adults with ADHD, to improve self-awareness, calmness, timeliness, motivation to stay with tasks, and patience in making wiser choices and actions.


The Adult ADHD training series begins with MLO 130, which covers the foundational understanding of how the ADHD brain differs from the Neurotypical, its strengths, and challenges with tools to improve capacities and skills for more consistent reliability and responsible living.

The following courses in this series review some of those fundamentals and areas that need development for more cohesive transformation and optimization.

*Our ADHD courses were taught through UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center for three years.
