“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 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 video below to create a controlled and relaxed meditative breath. Adjust the speed by clicking the settings "gear" icon at the bottom right of the screen.
While in a panicked state, catching your breath and calming yourself is a very difficult task. The flower video is designed to assist you in getting your attack under control through a simple breathing exercise.
Things to remember while you’re breathing:
• Try to inhale through your nose and breathe in for about 4-5 seconds
• Exhale through your mouth slowly for 4-5 seconds
Did you know you can stop most panic attacks with a simple breathing exercise?
Anxiety in Order is a simple, free tool that uses this technique to help you regain control and calm down quickly during a panic attack. Anytime you feel one coming on, simply open the app and breathe along with the video. If you live with anxiety or feel debilitated because you’re scared of an impending panic attack, try it.

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.
