 Anxiety – Understanding it Differently | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Attempts to overcoming or at least reduce anxiety tend to fail.  Perhaps our efforts fail because we are applying the wrong understanding, and therefore the wrong model for changing it.  Anxiety isn’t the kind of thing that responds to our intellect.
