Meditation + Talk: Dealing with Worries and Releasing Anxiety

Meditation + Talk: Dealing with Worries and Releasing Anxiety

In this meditation, talk, and discussion from my Wednesday Night Meditation, we start with a 45-minute meditation in Releasing Anxiety, Finding Peace. Then, as this is a time of much concern, I offer a talk on Dealing with Worries.

I hope you find it helpful, and you are welcome to join my free Wednesday Meditations – open to everyone!

Dealing with Worries and Releasing Anxiety | Learn why we worry and how to let it go, and do a guided meditation on releasing anxiety and finding peace, with Rick Hanson in his Wednesday Meditations.

Practicing Dāna: Cultivating Generosity

These teachings are offered freely, at no charge. And if you like, you may wish to participate in the age-old tradition of generosity through making an offering yourself – called “dāna” – to support Rick and the Wednesday Meditations. Generosity itself is a beautiful practice that opens and gladdens the heart, relaxes the contraction of “self,” and ripples out into the world to touch many people – and perhaps, eventually, even oneself.

Additionally, many expressions of generosity are not about money. People offer attention, encouragement, and patience many times a day. Sometimes we withhold when it would be so easy, actually, to listen quietly for another minute or to offer a word of appreciation or simply a look that says, “I’m with you.” Try being a little more generous for a day and see what happens.
