Creating a Vibrant Life Beyond Worry, Panic, and Anxiety


Learn to move beyond worry and live in the present with more joy, optimism, and confidence. Instead of avoiding anxiety-arousing situations and limiting your personal growth, you can face anxiety using new skills—ones that empower you to realize your true potential.

Join founder and director of the Vermont Center for Anxiety Care, Paul Foxman, as he teaches you how and why anxiety develops, as well as what steps you can take to reduce and prevent anxiety. Through self-assessment tools, breathing practices, visualization, mind-body regulation, and yoga, you will:

  • Identify your personal anxiety patterns (e.g., worry, fear, obsessive thinking, self-doubt, social phobia, avoidance).
  • Acquire strategies for reducing anxiety by cultivating positive replacements.
  • Design a stress-management program and map your personal path to a vibrant life.
  • Learn to be more comfortable with uncertainty, ambiguity, and unpredictability.

Return home understanding how to counteract the key sources of your anxiety so you can create new neural pathways toward positive states of being.

NOTE This program is appropriate for anyone especially mental health professionals interested in improving their effectiveness when working with anxious clients.
