Lisa Ernst, meditation teacher and founder of One Dharma Nashville, and Terry Huff, LCSW, psychotherapist specializing in adults with ADHD, will offer a meditation workshop for adults with the diagnosis of ADD or ADHD. The workshop will include lecture, practice, and discussion and will address the following:

1. Why meditate if you have ADHD?
2. Basics of practice
3. Different practices for:
a. selective attention (focusing)
b. open awareness (expanding)
c. compassion (for self and other)

Research shows that mindfulness practice improves concentration, attention regulation (as in disengaging from one task and start another), self-observation (of mental activity), working memory, and emotion regulation.
