    Easing Fear:
    Mindfulness Skills in Times of Crisis

    Mark Levine, M.D., Psy.D

    When we feel stressed we naturally focus on negative thoughts and feelings. Some negative emotions are useful. Fear protects us from danger. Anger is a useful response to a threat and sadness helps us heal from loss. But many negative emotions such as depression, anxiety, panic, frustration or despair impair our ability to see and solve problems. They often prevent us from taking positive action and tend to be self-fulfilling because they influence how we perceive and engage with the world. These negative emotions add to our stress and can even make us ill. And yet it is possible to train our attention in a different way that frees us from this struggle with negative thoughts and feelings.

    It is possible to influence the mental conditions and neurochemistry in which all thoughts, emotions and sensations are formed and connected.By training a gentle curious attitude of attention to whatever arises, even stressful thoughts and emotions, we can create healthy mental conditions which can gradually reduce suffering. 

    Please join us to learn: 

    • The difference between stress and suffering
    • How negative thoughts create suffering
    • Why negative thoughts are so compelling
    • How awareness protects us from negative thoughts 
    • How awareness enhances happiness
    • The evidence that mindfulness changes the brain
    • Practical skills for reducing stress and enhancing happiness
