Most of us live in a constant state of fear--of our past, of illness and aging and death, and of losing the things we treasure most. But it doesn't have to be this way, promises Zen master and Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh. Drawing on a lifetime of mindfulness in action, Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to use the practice of living in the present to acknowledge and embrace our fears, recognize their origins, and render them powerless. He guides us through practical exercises for transforming fear into clarity. Not only are we are able to handle challenging emotions as they arise, but we can summon feelings of well-being and contentment, no matter what the unknown may bring. Rooted in the moment, we have the capacity to restore balance and happiness and be present with what is beautiful and affirming inside us and around us, every day.--From publisher description.

The varieties of things people fear and how they fear them are all discussed and meditation exercises are given, from the really simple to the intermediate. Clear, organized, and useful.

An easy introduction to Nhat Hanh's Buddhist teaching. As I read it I thought it could be useful to people who get caught up in their own worries and anxiety. It presents a useful perspective on anxiety.
