Course objectives:

  • Apply a mindful approach to transform the emotional, physical and mental experiences of anxiety
  • Define terms and behaviors related to anxiety
  • Discuss the behavioral and psychological manifestations of anxiety including the three states of mind
  • Utilize five guided practices for working with anxiety

Stress isn't good or bad, it's just a part of life. The trouble starts when we don't know how to work with it effectively. Through a unique approach that combines simple mindfulness practices and breakthrough insights from cognitive therapy, Free Yourself from Anxiety gives you a powerful antidote to the debilitating effects and emotional suffering of everyday stress.

Join clinical psychologist and Columbia University professor Dr. Erin Olivo for a liberating program to help you transform your experience of anxiety and return to a life of wholeness and balance.

In session one, Dr. Olivo discusses the three major ways stress manifests itself—physically, psychologically, and behaviorally—and explains the remarkable and scientifically validated changes we can initiate through regular mindfulness practice.

In session two, she leads you safely through five guided mindfulness meditations to relax and calm the body, bring your full and open attention to your experience in the moment, create a healing space to work with your anxiety, and much more.

You can't get away from stress, but you can learn to manage it with wisdom and compassion. Whether used to complement an existing treatment plan or as part of a daily approach to building your resilience, Free Yourself from Anxiety gives you a toolbox of skills for success in today's demanding world.

Good as basic mindfulness meditation. Hasn't helped much in mitigating my anxieties, though.
But, I think my problems go deeper
than mere anxieties. Has not been a waste of time. Does help me a little bit. Could benefit you a lot.
