Perhaps the most common impediment to our wellbeing and happiness is the almost universal experience of stress and anxiety. These negative states of mind frequently interfere with our ability to perform our daily tasks, our capacity to cope with unexpected or challenging situations, and our chances of experiencing a contented and fulfilling life.

In this series,  we will identify precisely the inner causes of these mental ailments, how they develop and become habitual, and how we can begin to reduce and ultimately overcome them. By applying this understanding and experience to our daily lives, we will lighten the heavy load that stress and anxiety bring to us.
