This creative thesis project is intended to guide mindfulness instructors in offering a curriculum meant to instruct adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as well as potentially their families, teachers, and healthcare professionals in the use of mindfulness practices and principles to better manage the effects of ADHD on the adults’ personal and professional lives. The thesis is composed of a literature review and academic rationale discussion for the applicability of the principles and practices provided as well as a lesson plan and resources for the curriculum such as a syllabus, class presentation slides, and guided audio meditation recordings. The curriculum is meant to take place two times a week in group sessions for a total of four weeks.
