A holistic approach to easing anxiety without hiding from the world’s challenges.

Overwhelming anxiety and stress - most of us experience these feelings at some point. The challenges in our lives threaten to overpower us at times and the struggles we see in the world further add to the burden. Peace from Anxiety helps us understand the deep roots of our suffering so that we can work toward finding more peace - even in chaos. Therapist and yoga teacher Hala Khouri takes us on a journey to investigate our personal habits, understand our lives, and transform what doesn't serve us. Even though the roots of our anxiety, stress, and pain may feel complicated, healing doesn't have to be.

Khouri explores how our brain and nervous system experience stress and discusses how we can begin to get in touch with our body to better understand its signals and how to handle them. She delves deeply into the primary causes of anxiety and offers practical tools for releasing stress and being present with discomfort. Peace from Anxiety discusses topics including trauma, relationships, technology, and working not only for individual healing but also collective healing in our world. Filled with relatable stories and examples, each chapter offers a range of practices and tools to help us find more peace and work for good in our own lives and the lives of others.

Critic reviews

"I can’t imagine a more essential book, especially at this time in our planet’s history." (Seane Corn, author of Revolution of the Soul)

"I can say positively, and with the authority of someone who has been extremely candid in the public eye about her experience with anxiety, that this is the book we’ve all been waiting for. Whether you yourself deal with anxiety isn’t a prerequisite for reading, because you know someone who does. We all do. This beautiful book is a guide on how to be human. Filled with grace, practical lessons, and guidance, Hala Khouri has offered us a life-saving gift." (Jennifer Pastiloff, author of On Being Human)

"Peace from Anxiety is full of life-changing ideas and practices. Hala Khouri shares a rare blend of wisdom and compassion that is rooted in personal experience, deep study, and a devotion to helping others. This is a book that will make you feel braver, supported, and hopeful." (Kelly McGonigal, PhD, author of The Upside of Stress)

I Loved Every Minute!

When I noticed I only had 45 minutes of this book left, I was disappointed. I didn't want it to end!

This is a big-hearted, intelligently written book. It's full of stories, hope and guidance. The suggestions for self-exploration and self-regulation are simple and powerful.

Peace From Anxiety works well as an audiobook. It's easy to follow. Kaliswa Brewster does an excellent job reading the book. She's expressive and warm.

I'm excited about recommending this book!

I bought I hard copy of the book for reference
