Author Q&A: Karla McLaren

I’m so excited to have you join us for the Author Q&A with Karla McKlaren on Thursday, August 13th at 1pm EST.


You will receive a confirmation email + reminder emails with the Zoom link. In addition, all registered participants will receive a link to the recording once it is complete.

This 60-minute, LIVE and interactive Zoom experience will give you the opportunity to ask Karla questions about her new book, Embracing Anxiety: How to Access the Genius of This Vital Emotion.

I have interviewed Karla twice on the 60 Mindful Minutes podcast. You can check out those recordings here:


  • How to reframe anxiety
  • How to consciously question your anxiety
  • Practices to work with and alleviate anxiety, stress and worry
  • Self-care in anxious times


Your anxiety is not a mistake or a problem. It’s an essential source of foresight, intuition, and energy.

Most of us have been taught to feel ashamed about or afraid of our anxiety, or to treat it as a sign of weakness or trouble. Some people even talk about anxiety as an epidemic, as if it’s a serious disease that’s also contagious. This is a shame, because anxiety has an important job to do: it helps you look ahead, organize yourself, and gather the energy you need to get things done.


I highly recommend purchasing a copy of Karla’s book (released June 30, 2020) ahead of our call so you can get the most out of our discussion.

We’re supporting local book stores and so we encourage you to purchase your book through Writer’s Block Bookstore in Orlando, Florida or through your local independent bookstore. It’s our way of promoting conscious consumerism and giving small businesses a chance to compete for your book dollars.

See you on the 13th!
