Understandably, many try to cure, overcome or ‘get rid of’ their anxiety so that they can live more peacefully without its intrusion or destruction to their everyday lives. This book invites readers to experiment with an alternative – and somewhat paradoxical – approach of welcoming anxiety when it arrives; getting to know it well, as one might welcome – and become deeply connected to – a helpful friend. Rather than rejecting this valid human experience we all share to a greater or lesser degree, this book takes a holistic and integrative approach to both anxiety itself and wellbeing overall.
