"Panic attacks are one-two punches: they feel dreadful, plus people shrink their lives to avoid having another one. With kindness, insight, and research-proven methods, this book shows you how to prevent panic attacks or ride them out with less suffering, plus how to reclaim your own full life. Grounded in the power of mindfulness, full of effective tools and practices, and rich with the authors' warmth and genuine wisdom, this is a remarkable guide to a life beyond panic."
--Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Buddha's Brain and Just One Thing

"We have the capacity, within our own heart and awareness, to handle panic attacks. Calming the Rush of Panic is a clear and compassionate guide in navigating this acute form of fear. Through wise teachings, case studies and a range of reflections and meditations, this book will strengthen your inner resources and nourish your spirit."
--Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

"An extremely useful and practical book that goes to the very heart of the matter. If you wholeheartedly embody in practice what it recommends, it can help transform a tendency to panic into an opening to greater balance of mind, self-acceptance, and self-compassion, right in that moment. Ultimately, it manifests as wisdom. That is the power of mindfulness. And it is already yours."
--Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Full Catastrophe Living and Mindfulness for Beginners

"In addition to the clearly presented instructions for counteracting and overcoming panic, what makes this book special is the uniformly kind tone of voice of these authors throughout. They embody the wisdom of health professionals in emergency situations: they reassure, and they convey confidence and hope. You believe that they are teaching out of personal experience!"
--Sylvia Boorstein, author of Happiness Is an Inside Job

"Delightfully clear and practical, Calming the Rush of Panic offers profound insights from ancient wisdom traditions and modern psychology to help free oneself from panic attacks and live a healthier, more joyful life. The mindfulness practices offered are wise, scientific, nourishing, and transformative. Grounded in modern science, yet written from the heart, this book is a gem."
--Shauna L. Shapiro, associate professor at Santa Clara University, clinical psychologist, and coauthor of The Art and Science of Mindfulness

"Grounded in the experiential and direct, this pragmatic approach will help you become intimate with the taste, touch, and 'mind' of fear. Of course, no one wants to look closely at such painful experiences. Yet, deftly guided by the authors into developing a clear-minded relationship with the unwanted, you'll learn to catalyze within yourself the openness, kindness, clarity, and love that have the power to liberate and release you from the knot of panic."
--Saki Santorelli, EdD, MA, associate professor of medicine at Massachusetts Medical School and author of Heal Thy Self
