Letting Go of Anxiety

In this series Paige will explore methods, meditations and ways of thinking derived from Buddha’s teachings that will help us become fearless in the face of adversity and deal with our negative emotions, especially the mind of anxiety, more confidently and effectively.  As we learn to connect with the natural peace and joy of our own root mind, we will develop a sense of our deep, indestructible nature, our power and potential for happiness, and our sense that we have everything we need within in order to be fine; thus, nothing to fear.  We can turn our attention to others, become courageous in our desire to benefit them, and ultimately transform anything into the spiritual path.
