The Mindful Way through Anxiety: Break Free From Chronic Worry and Reclaim Your Life by Orsillo and Roemer

Guided mindfulness meditations by Angela Marino


"For many, anxiety, worry, or fear are stumbling blocks that can be extraordinarily difficult to overcome. The problem is, you can’t just “get over” anxiety. In fact, the very things most people do to try to feel better—avoiding feared situations, pushing worry out of mind—only make the problem worse."

This Naked Mind by Annie Grace

“I’ve never let myself trust love because I’ve never let myself trust pain. What if pain—like love—is just a place brave people visit? What if both require presence, staying on your mat, and being still? If this is true, then maybe instead of resisting the pain, I need to resist the easy buttons. Maybe my reliance on numbing is keeping me from the two things I was born for: learning and loving. I could go on hitting easy buttons until I die and feel no pain, but the cost of that decision could be that I’ll never learn, love, or be truly alive.” -Love Warrior

“Here. Right here, right now bring your mind to this place and time. Invite it, even if it resists, to sit and witness what it is to be alive. Let there be no ulterior motive in this moment but to be. Rest on the waves of breath and choose to experience all of it. Let thoughts float through and leave again, as the mind slowly settles like snow inside a shaken paperweight. This is all there is. Here. Right here and now.” -Kripalu Yoga
