I suffer from ADHD and general anxiety and depression.  I gave up prescription psych medication a few years ago after I came to realize they are generally toxic and unsafe.  I gave up alcohol and nicotine a little over a year ago.  Meditation seems to be the next natural step in slowing my thoughts and finding peace in myself.  With ADHD, I tend to have trouble following through with new endeavors once the novelty has worn off.  Through meditation, I am hoping to find focus and purpose, allowing me to finally move forward with my life.

Dear Mike,

Welcome to the course!

Just to let you know – there have been a couple of clinical studies conducted with school children with ADHD in Australia in which after just 6 weeks of by-weekly in-person meetings + regular Sahaja Yoga meditation at home, the symptoms of ADHD were reduced by 35%, with 55% reduction in medication, plus other improvements. 

So hopefully it will work for you as well!

Please stay in touch and let us know how it goes,

Wishing you all the best,

Mar’yana
