Mindfulness and Anxiety

September 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
114 Mt. Auburn St., Conference Room 406
HLS student reading outside

To feel occasional anxiety is a natural human experience, but for many anxiety can become a source of ongoing distress, capable of interfering with everyday life. Many of our efforts to avoid anxiety may involve distracting ourselves from it, or pushing it away, but this provides only temporary relief. Mindfulness, on the other hand, offers a pathway to meet the experience of anxiety, and in doing so, restore valued activity, rather than allowing ourselves to be dominated by fear and avoidance. This workshop will introduce the use of mindfulness as a way to understand and respond to the experience of anxiety.
