If you’re feeling anxious, very anxious, or deeply anxious right now, it may help to know that your anxiety is normal and necessary. You need your anxiety, and there are supportive skills and practices to help you work with anxiety instead of being overwhelmed by it.

Most of us have been taught to feel ashamed or afraid of our anxiety, or to treat it as a sign of weakness. Some even talk about anxiety as an epidemic, as if it’s a serious disease that’s also contagious. But none of that is helpful or true.

Anxiety is an essential emotion with an important job to do: it helps you prepare for the future, organize yourself, and gather the energy you need to get things done.

When you can reframe your anxiety and learn how to work with it intentionally, it can help you focus, plan, take action, complete your tasks, and fulfill your goals. 

A weekend workshop to help you embrace and understand your anxiety

Luckily, there are many ways to support your anxiety so that you can soothe and focus yourself, gather the energy and information you need, and work gracefully with it instead of fighting against it.

Join me online for a supportive 2-day workshop where you’ll develop new skills, explore ways of befriending and embracing your anxiety.

You’ll learn new practices to help you engage with the energy and foresight your anxiety brings to you, and you’ll also learn how to work with your anxiety when it pairs up with other emotions such as fear, panic, or shame.

We’ll also explore the often-unseen genius in procrastination, and learn how to identify whether your natural motivational style includes procrastination (and how to honor and welcome it in yourself and others).

This 2-day live online workshop is open to everyone.
