You'll learn how your mind can trap you, keeping you stuck and struggling in anxiety and fear. You'll also discover ways to nurture your capacity for acceptance, mindfulness, kindness, and compassion, and use these qualities to shift your focus away from anxiety and onto what you really want your life to be about. Finally, you'll learn how to let go ofthe trauma and painful past experiences that can fuel your anxiety.

No matter what kind of anxiety problem you're struggling with, this workbook can guide you toward a more vibrant and purposeful life.
