There are plenty of great ADHD resources on the internet these days but this course truly stands out.  After getting diagnosed, I learned hundreds of tips and tricks for ADHD organization, rejection sensitivity dysphoria, time blindness, and other internal booby traps.  The problem was remembering to use them! I had all sorts of clever words for why I wasn’t getting my stuff done, but I still wasn’t getting it done.

 

Instead of recycling the typical ADHD fires and all the ways to put them out, this course addresses on the deeper problems that cause the fires in the first place. When there are lifestyle tips, they are simple, effective, and based on personal experience. Just one listen through the course material has changed how I think about ADHD and improved how I relate to symptoms.

 

The paradox of meditating with ADHD is that learning how to focus and sit still is almost the same as “healing ADHD”, but ADHD makes it hard to learn the basics of meditation! As a therapist and meditation teacher with ADHD, Jude has a valuable perspective that combines professional training with lived experience. These guided meditations complement the course material and account for an experiential baseline that includes a hard time concentrating, excessive squirminess, and big feelings.

 

I have a fairly established meditation practice and got a ton out of this course, but I wish I’d had it when I started meditating and/or found out about ADHD so I’d have been able to more skillfully approach some of the predictable ADHD stumbling blocks. Excellent stuff! 

Explore the core strategies to overcome restlessness and distractibility

And find an inner sense of peace and wellbeing

  • Reduce Restlessness and Reactivity

    Your attitude and posture represent your baseline way of being - it’s your default. They're so ingrained that you mostly don’t even notice. The first module helps us shift our baseline to be more open and accepting, especially towards our inner experience, which dramatically reduces distress and reactivity. We go deeper in listening to the body. Feelings are our body's way of communicating with us; when we ignore them, our body has a tendency to start yelling, which makes us try to repress and ignore further - which just gets us caught in a painful feedback loop. This listening practice has been shown to greatly improve focus, even after doing it only once.

  • Self-Compassion and Overcoming the Barriers

    Chronic restlessness and distractibility often lead to feelings of inadequacy, feeling like we're is "too much", or feeling "not good enough". We explore a practice for cultivating self-compassion, as well as a practice for locating and overcoming the barriers to self-compassion.

  • Creating Traction, Overcoming Distraction

    We explore pragmatic and proven strategies to create more traction with the tasks we want to be doing, and overcome our distractible nature. Included is a short "power break", basically a rest and refocus practice that can be utilized while doing a task to cultivate the relaxed focus and motivation necessary to perform at our best. Also included is a practice to improve the skill of recognizing and releasing distracting thoughts, focusing on the skills we can develop to not feed into distractions.

I tried many different approaches to meditation before; my problem was that I quickly drifted to other thoughts during the second or third session. Meditation for ADHD is entirely different; it is easier and faster to focus and recover calm and focus every time I play the practices. Thanks!

I really liked and got a lot of good tips from this course. Jude's training in therapy and meditation is uniquely helpful to me. The whole notion of creating a space between fear and desires and seeing how they arise, noticing the, and just. being with the active sensations is a game changer for me. I would definitely do m ore courses from Jude in the future.

I'm a meditation teacher with ADHD. I've been practicing meditation for 2 decades and have been a content writer for popular meditation apps, including Calm and Open. For the first few years of meditating, my practice was terrible. But I eventually found the techniques that worked for my restless and distractible nervous system. This course is my best attempt to make these practices useful to others who often find themselves restless and distracted.
