For those of us who experience anxiety, the thought of attending an in-person course – even a course on something like mindfulness – can itself feel overwhelming.

This two week audio and video course is designed for those who struggle with anxiety. Delivered by a facilitator who herself experienced debilitating anxiety for many years, she describes how a return to gentle body-based awareness can help to restore an overwhelmed nervous system.

The course includes 8 x 10-minute teachings available in video or audio format, as well as recorded practices for you to listen to in your own timing,  plus access to monthly live facilitated drop-in sessions where you will share a practice with other participants of courses run by The Heart Movement and have the opportunity to ask questions and gain support from an experienced facilitator.

You will also gain access to a dedicated group on The Heart Movement App in which you can chat with other participants and facilitators, ask questions, and share inspiration and resources.
