Cultivating Curiosity, Letting Go of Anxiety

Slide from Daniel Hardy’s Meditation

If you missed Dan’s thought-provoking meditation on Sunday the 7th, you can still watch it, here on Youtube. 

Perhaps you’d like to ponder answers to these questions: 

– Can you recall a moment of uncertainty about something important to you? How did it feel?

– Can you recall a recent experience of getting lost in curiosity? How did it feel?

– How was curiosity treated in your faith journey? Was it welcomed/encouraged or discouraged?

For those who didn’t jot down the book title to which he referred, it’s Unwinding Anxiety: New Science Shows How to Break the Cycles of Worry and Fear to Heal Your Mind, by Judson Brewer MD, PhD.

(Dr. Brewer is an internationally renowned addiction psychiatrist and neuroscientist. He is an associate professor in the School of Public Health, and Medical School at Brown University. His 2016 TED talk, “A Simple Way to Break a Bad Habit,” has been viewed over 16 million times.)
