During this two hour course, you will learn about the paradox of anxiety - how accepting our anxiety gently is actually the key to calming it. You will come to see how anxiety is an understandable and appropriate experience while still finding freedom from anxiety. We will be guiding you through short practices to provide relief from anxiety. Finally, you will learn to trust your innate ability to handle life and expand beyond just "surviving", recognizing that this is what it means to be truly resilient. You will have lifetime access to this course and can move through the content at your own pace.
In a brief two hours of your valuable time, this course will teach you a no-fail approach to find freedom from anxiety. The course delivery modalities include a combination of brief videos, guided audio practices, content summaries and multiple choice reflection quizzes. All the modules will be available to you immediately and you can move through the content at your own pace.

"The five minute video modules are particularly helpful for busy lawyers (and busy other people) to have bite-size strategies that can be quickly and easily accessed in moments of need. I've watched other courses/programs on anxiety and meditation and while they often make helpful points, I never complete them or engage the strategies because I can't find the time." Alissa C., lawyer
"You said so many things that resonated with me (I took notes lol) which is so validating, and your overall compassionate, soothing natures create a true sense of support. It felt as if you were walking alongside me in each module, and this sense of support and "rooting" for me, helps me to internalize that and feel that way towards myself."
"Melanie and Ellen are cornerstones of calm. They immediately remind me that more than anxiety is possible for me." VS, lawyer
"My self critical voice has now been replaced with a gentle approach that values caring for myself."
