DIG Coaching Practice Presents "ADHD: Controlling Your Attention Using Attention Exercises" on Attention Talk Radio with Host Jeff Copper and Gregg Krech, ToDo Institute
Host Jeff Copper interviews Gregg Krech of the ToDo Institute on attention, meditation, and exercises to improve the ability to control what we pay attention to. For those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), struggling to control attention, this show may shift the paradigm on what meditation is and how it works when paying attention to the now.
Gregg Krech and his wife, Linda Anderson Krech, are founders and operators of the ToDo Institute, a nonprofit center in Monkton, Vermont, that offers educational programs on Japanese psychology. Gregg encountered Buddhism and Eastern philosophy during his undergraduate years at Northern Illinois University. He went on to study Zen in the US and Japan and has been a practicing Buddhist for more than thirty years. He has traveled extensively in Asia and worked with orphans in refugee camps of Laos and Cambodia where he saw the tragedies of war. Today, he is one of the leading authorities on Japanese psychology in the US. He is the author of Naikan: Gratitude, Grace, and the Japanese Art of Self-Reflection (Stone Bridge Press) and A Natural Approach to Mental Wellness. He is also editor of the ToDo Institute’s quarterly journal: Thirty Thousand Days: A Journal for Purposeful Living.
