The Mindfulness Solution to Anxiety
Drawing on techniques and perspectives from two seemingly different traditions, this second edition of the self-help classic Calming Your Anxious Mind offers you a powerful and profound approach to overcoming anxiety, fear, and panic. From the evidence-based tradition of Western medicine, learn the role your thoughts and emotions play in anxiety. And, from the tradition of meditation and the inquiry into meaning and purpose, discover your own potential for presence and stillness, kindness and compassion-and the tremendous power these states give you to heal and transform your life.
Use this encouraging, step-by-step program to:
- Learn about the mechanism of anxiety and the body's fear system
- Develop a healing mindfulness practice-one breath at a time
- Start on the path to presence, stillness, compassion, and loving kindness
- Practice acceptance during mindfulness meditation
- Feel safe while opening up to fearful and anxious feelings

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I absolutely loved this book!! I suffer from panic attacks and phobias and this book has truly given me some wonderful tips to manage my stress and anxiety more effectively. I am still working on practicing the meditation at this point, so I definitely haven't mastered it, but I plan to continue practicing and hopefully I can get rid of my anxiety and panic for good. I have tried many other books and I have been reading a variety of them for several years, so it is very refreshing to finally read one that I feel could actually make a difference in my life.
