Beyond Anxiety: An Unshakeable Confidence

Day of Practice: On-Demand

Learn to loosen your grip on anxiety, and embrace the truths of life

Do you find yourself caught up in fear and anxiety? Do you sometimes disproportionally focus on sources of concern and difficulty? Can you get overwhelmed by personal, social or global problems?

Anxiety is one of the afflictions of our age. Lost in what could possibly happen, we lose touch with what is right now, and with how to meet situations simply and effectively.

In addition to personal matters, the Covid pandemic, political divisiveness, economic strain and our increasing ecological collapse can further add to a state of fearful uncertainty and concern.

This Day of Practice with Sangha Live founding teacher Martin Aylward explores the nature, phenomenology and understanding of anxiety. Understanding our patterning and recognizing the origins of anxiety can lead to the emergence of unshakeable confidence, allowing us to face anything in life with openness of heart and freeness of mind.

Join this session to learn to:

  • Discriminate between momentary, habitual and existential anxiety
  • Befriend, regulate and understand different expressions of anxiety
  • Inquire into the sources of anxiety, without further inflaming anxious rumination
  • See beyond anxious storylines and feelings
  • Cultivate an understanding and vision of life arising out of deep, gentle, unshakeable confidence

What is Day of Practice?

Sangha Live’s 3-hour Day of Practice allows for you to drop in deeper, develop your meditation skills, and reset your intentions through sustained sitting.

Now offered ON-DEMAND, you can join this session independently, on your own schedule, and at your ideal pace. Watch and re-watch the videos as you please.

Days of Practice include longer periods of meditation interspersed with wise teachings, a recorded Q&A from the live class, and more.

What’s Included

With the independent student in mind, previously recorded live sessions are broken down into meaningful modules. Each Day of Practice has been trimmed and consolidated into 4 to 6 videos, and every video – whether a lesson, meditation, exercise, or Q&A – includes a description, so you have total flexibility when planning your self-paced day of practice.


Day of Practice is offered on a sliding scale basis, with a suggested rate of $35. We wholeheartedly welcome all to practice with us; no one turned away for lack of funds.
