Letting Go of Anxiety

In this series Justine will explore mindfulness methods, meditations and ways of thinking derived from Buddha’s teachings that will help us to become fearless in the face of adversity and deal with our negative emotions more confidently and effectively.
Connecting to the natural joy within our mind opens us up to recognizing and identifying with the potential for happiness, love and other good qualities that exist within each and everyone of us. This empowers us with a sense of purpose in our life, an inner drive to actualize our unbelievable potential so that we can of be real benefit to our family, friends and everyone throughout our world. The emphasis will be on how to integrate our practice of training the mind with every aspect of our life: work, family, friends, down-time etc.
