Anxiety, Fear, and the Brain


Dr. Sara Lazar




Dr. Sara Lazar introduces a mindfulness practice to help participants ground themselves. She emphasizes the importance of curiosity and acceptance in observing one's thoughts and sensations, focusing on the breath to cultivate a sense of gratitude and presence.


Good morning again, everybody. We're going to start off with a short mindfulness practice session just to bring ourselves into the room or into the body because our mind could be all over the place. Some of you may have been worrying about not getting into the room yet.

So we are going to now start with three beautiful deep breaths. You can keep your eyes open. If you prefer, you can close your eyes and just check in with the weather of your mind at this moment. Also, check in with your body and how it's feeling. Just accept whatever arises in this moment, whatever your body's feeling, and whatever the weather is like in the mind.
