ABOUT THE TALK

Discover how to unlearn the bad mental habit of worrying and become calmer and happier. Problems, worry, anxiety, and unhappiness are no more than negative thinking; they are feelings and do not exist outside the mind. Through practicing meditation and mindfulness, we learn to control our thoughts and let go of negative, self-defeating states of mind.
