Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do you constantly feel anxious? Do you have panic attacks that make you feel as though you are about to lose control? You are not alone. In fact, anxiety disorders are among the most common mental health conditions faced by our society. Perhaps youve tried therapy or medication and have not found any real, lasting relief for your symptoms. So where do you go from here?

Calming the Rush of Panic will introduce you to the practices of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR)—a proven-effective meditational method developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn—as a way to work through episodes of panic. After an informative introduction to MBSR, you will be guided through a number of exploratory practices and meditations to transform your panic into peace." Each chapter in the book contains informational background on the topic, guided meditations, and up to 10 practices that let you put the information and skills you will learn into action.

The book promotes mindfulness-based practices and exercises to help you deal with the physical, emotional, and mental effects of panic, and inside you will learn foundational MBSR meditation practices, including mindful breathing, sitting meditation, and loving-kindness meditation. If your fear response is out of sync with the situations you find yourself in, this book will show you that your thoughts are just thoughts—they are just one part of you.

This quick, accessible book is the first to use an MBSR approach to specifically target panic attacks and panic disorder, and its goal is to show you what exists beyond your panic—a life filled with a greater sense of calm, connection, and happiness.

Synopsis:

The best-selling author of Calming Your Anxious Mind offers a wealth of daily mindfulness meditations you can use every day to manage chronic anxiety, restore calm, and feel at peace.

Synopsis:

Trying to control your anxious thoughts can backfire, making them more prevalent, not less. The best way to calm these common feelings is by attuning yourself to your thoughts in a nonjudgmental, attentive manner, acknowledging your anxieties but choosing to act rather than react.

From the author of Calming Your Anxious Mind comes Daily Mediations for Calming Your Anxious Mind, a collection of more than sixty-four daily mindfulness-based meditations to help you engage with the present moment, manage stress and anxiety, and rediscover the joy in living. Each meditation contains an easy-to-learn visualization exercise, affirmation, or activity, with meditations grouped into four sections: relaxing and feeling safe, embracing joys and fears, befriending your anxious mind and body, and connecting to the web of life.

This book is a treasure-nourishing, sustaining, and skillfully crafted. Calling their approach to the release from anxiety 'the way of awareness, ' the authors have shaped a warm, authentic rendering of mindfulness practice into direct, easily understandable language. Step by step, they lead us into substantive, well-documented methods for becoming intimately familiar with an inner terrain and integrating what is discovered in this interior realm into a way of being that is the key to freeing us from the imprisoning tyranny of anxiety and fear.

-Saki F. Santorelli, Ed.D., executive director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society and associate professor of medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and author of Heal Thyself
