We’re often so caught up in our insecurities and fears – thinking about the past or worrying about the future – that we miss the very moment we’re in. We escape the present moment, seeking comfort from old, habitual behaviors. Yet our uneasiness and discomfort linger as a backdrop in our lives. In this unique video, Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., ABPP offers Eastern and Western practical wisdom for finding joy, self-understanding, and freedom from our insecurities by living fully and consciously in the present. With anecdotes, exercises, and demonstration, Linehan guides you step-by-step through six fundamental mindfulness skills that prepare the foundation for a “Wise Mind” and living fully awake and free in daily life.
This DVD is part of a four video set, From Chaos to Freedom DBT Skills Training videos.
