Description

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, as many as 40 million adults in the US suffer from some kind of anxiety disorder-and it's a growing issue for kids as well. For anyone troubled by obsessive thoughts, insomnia, and other manifestations of anxiety, counselor Sheryl Paul offers a shelter in the storm. In The Wisdom of Anxiety, Paul reveals that anxiety, like any emotion, is a signal-a clear bodily invitation to heal and renew your trust in your choices, self-image, and core values.

Weaving together practical exercises, Jungian analysis, and lyrical personal stories, Paul offers drug-free approaches for accessing the gifts in different kinds of anxiety, including the existential anxiety around questions of the soul and spirit. The Wisdom of Anxiety also gives special attention to the anxiety summoned by life's transitions, from universal concerns like the change of the seasons to major events such as a career change, marriage, or pregnancy.

Review quote

"In this wisdom-drenched book, Sheryl Paul's perspective on the epidemic of anxiety paves the way for a seismic shift toward a more equanimous and compassionate world. The Wisdom of Anxiety serves as a well-lit pathway to the truth of who we are and to how to navigate life when paralyzed by anxiety, depression, overwhelm, and a sense of hopelessness. This is a manifesto for our certain return to wholeness." --Alanis Morissette, singer-songwriter

"A rare and radical book that is so deeply wise it will change you from the inside out. Filled with practical wisdom and insights that will make you laugh out loud, The Wisdom of Anxiety is a book for our times; we need it now more than ever." --Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, PhD, author of Wounds into Wisdom and With Roots in Heaven
