“Since happiness and suffering are parts of the mind, if we want to avoid suffering and find true happiness we need to understand the nature and functions of the mind.” – How to Transform Your Life, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Anxiety has become an epidemic in our society these days. Even if you solve the external problem that you’re worried about, the mind of anxiety finds something else to fixate on. Then there is the feeling of general anxiety that doesn’t seem to be about anything in particular. Depression almost always seems to go with anxiety, so that even when the overactive mind calms down, you sink into feelings of discouragement and hopelessness. Are you ready for a different approach to these horrible problems?

The Buddhist approach centers around meditation as a tool to re-empower your own mind, from the inside out. By understanding the mind and understanding karma, solutions can be found that are impossible otherwise. Start at the beginning of the series if you can, but if you cannot then start when you are able.
