Anxiety is a common experience for many in our modern world. Anxiety disorder is the most common mental illness in the United States affecting 40 million adults each year. Anxiety can range from normal fears and worries to debilitating panic attacks and crippling fear. Inspired by author Corrine Zupko's own terrifying experiences with anxiety disorder for nearly thirty years, From Anxiety to Love: A Radical New Approach for Letting Go of Fear and Finding Lasting Peace offers new wisdom that allows each of us to discover the source of our own anxiety and heal the problem at the root.
French philosopher, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin is attributed to saying, "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” This very topic of perspective is the subject of Chapter One titled, "A New Way of Seeing the World." Corrine explains that we are not who we think we are and that we mistakenly take ourselves to be our fear, our anxiety, and our worry but these are not the things that define us because our true eternal nature is love. When we experience anxiety, we are not identifying with our true nature and that is our cue that we have gotten off course. Will we choose fear or love?
Inspired by the healing processes from A Course in Miracles, Corrine offers practical steps that readers can use to work though anxiety, navigate difficult relationships, and resolve any other problems that might be bothering them. This is not just a book to read but rather a manual for uncovering the root cause of suffering and healing ourselves. At the end of each chapter, quotations and activities provide the tools needed to take action and begin healing anxiety right away.
"Inner peace is not an event: it's a process. It's not something we attain once and keep forever, but rather an experience that continues to deepen to the degree to which you're willing to get out of the way and allow peace to move through you," writes Corrine. By replacing fear with love and remembering our true nature, we are able to release and move beyond anxiety and experience a life full of love that is constantly helping us grow and evolve.

“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.”
Yogis have known the importance of the breath for thousands of years. The ancient sages taught us that “prana”, the vital force circulating through us, can be cultivated and channeled through a spectrum of breathing exercises.
Learning to breathe consciously and with awareness can be a valuable tool in helping to restore balance in the mind and body. Utilize the Breath video to create a controlled meditative breath.

One of our all time favorite teachers is the late Joseph Campbell. Joseph Campbell was a preeminent scholar, writer, and teacher who had a genius for finding the unifying symbols and metaphors in apparently distinct cultures and traditions. Campbell explores the enduring power of the universal myths that influence our lives daily and examines the myth-making process from the primitive past to the immediate present, returning always to the source from which all mythology springs: the creative imagination. He had a profound influence on millions of people--including Star Wars creator George Lucas. To Campbell, mythology was the “song of the universe, the music of the spheres.”
In the video below, Campbell discusses winged fish, the feathered serpent, the Bodhisattva, and the Christ -- all mythological images of a shift in consciousness. This video is a brief excerpt from interviews filmed with Joseph Campbell shortly before his death in 1987, previously unreleased by the Joseph Campbell Foundation.
