Transforming Fear: How to turn stress and anxiety into well-being

Teacher: Albert Buhr
Cost: 2 days’ accommodation + R350 surcharge
Dates: Friday 14 September 2018 - Sunday 16 September 2018

albert buhr smlTo reduce the suffering in the world, we need the skills to reduce our own. This workshop will teach you the practical, effective tools to do exactly that. Unless it is released, stress gets locked into our bodies, accumulating until it erupts in panic, aggression or illness. Only a bold and brave reorientation can heal the roots of the growing epidemic of anxiety and depression that psychiatry has failed to quell with its quick-fix suppression of symptoms. Deep relaxation is an art, and the doorway to profound bliss.

As a member of Harvard's Langer Mindfulness Institute he has taken his workshops to an international audience. His book, Angel of Fear, was published in 2016.
