      Claire, one of the Meditation Society of America's members from
      Australia, has a technique that she shared with us recently that comes
      from her personal experience with ADD. She was taught long ago, that
      when she couldn't focus on a subject in school, to visualize herself
      using a lasso to throw at the object of her concentration and see it
      being hauled in, much as a cowboy/girl would do to a steer (she really
      saw this happen daily as a child, as she grew up on cattle ranch).
      She has found that Concentration has become much more under her
      command by using this same methodology when sitting in Meditation. She
      reports that previously when trying to meditate, she would become
      distracted, and lose focus on the object of her meditation within one
      or two minutes. Now that she has implimented her childhood ADD
      technique, she hauls in her mind very quickly, and can easily refocus
      on her meditation, and now can stay with it for a very long time. So,
      maybe you don't learn everything you ever needed to know in
      kindergarten, and some things from elementary school also will be of
      help:-) In any event, perhaps this method will be of benefit to you,
      and if so, great!
