Children and Anxiety

cedric test

Anxiety disorders are on the rise and affect up to 20% of kids. Turnaround was developed as a way to directly treat children quickly, creatively and effectively.

It is a 10-part audio program with accompanying workbook that is  based on years of research and experience including the rigorous standards of a random controlled study.

It will teach your child what anxiety is, how it works, and how to overcome it. Turnaround is truly a unique program because it speaks directly to your child, it can be used at home, is available immediately and proven effective.

Mindfulness and Meditation

Ram Dass talks about how we can be present and utterly accepting of each moment life as it is in the here and now, and uses stories such as the Sermon on the Mount and the teachings of Ramakrishna to illustrate concepts such as finding the sacred in the “profane”, grasping and why we do it, yin and yang duality and oneness, and unconditional love.  These talks are a primer on the fundamental underpinnings of so many spiritual practices popular today.

In this new online program, “Healing, Laughter, and Miracles,” Bernie dives deep into these philosophies, offering sage advice based on his extensive career helping people through difficult times. His enthusiasm for laughter, storytelling, meditation, and the healing power of the mind have helped patients and their families manage life-threatening illness for over thirty years.

This mp3 collection of programs from Jon Kabat-Zinn is comprised of a complete set of his seminal works that constitute the core practice curriculum of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) in the Stress Reduction Clinic.

In this new online program, StreetSmart Wisdom: Mindfulness In The Digital Age, Jon Kabat-Zinn, scientist, author, and Founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Steve Stein, Publisher at BetterListen/WisdomFeed, discuss the ever-growing importance of mindful living in the 21st century.
