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. In the introductory workshop, “Mindfulness and Anxiety’ course, participants learned how the use of mindfulness as a way to understand and respond to the experience of anxiety. In this session, the instructor will go further into how Mindfulness 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.
