Overcoming Anxiety – week of 23 November to week of 14 December
Many people suffer from anxiety and stress at some time or other. Sometimes it is due to stressful work, sometimes due to problems at home, and sometimes due to difficult relationships.
On this course, learn how anxiety and stress, as well as other conditions such as tension, nervousness, worry and depression have their roots in our state of mind and show how we can reduce and eventually overcome these conditions by working on our mind with a combination of meditation and positive thinking.
