Ask Amy: Does anxiety have meaning, or is it just current-moment experience?

Holden wonders whether there is something to see in anxiety, or whether it’s just what he is experiencing in the moment.

Maybe it’s both? Even if there is something to see and learn from anxiety, you’ll see that in the current moment, right?

He’s also wondering if trauma creates anxiety.

Listen in to see how–either way–looking at the current-moment-ness of anxiety makes so much sense.
