I want to learn about how to use meditation to help social anxiety problems (or any anxiety problems)--


I have had some success in this area but I also want to learn more, this thread is for discussing how to use meditation, in particular, to help problems with "clinical social anxiety disorder" (basically a phobia or fear of of social situations). 


Do you know of ways to use meditation to help social anxiety or even other anxiety problems?


What has helped you (vis-a-vis anxiety problems and meditation)?

I have personally been helped by meditating (but I want to make more progress), I have particularly used Mindfulness and also Insight Meditation trying to be more present for the moment and also my feelings. It has taken a lot of practice but I starting to get more and more results which is promising, although I could use some pointers. Here is one good article along those lines ,"Social Anxiety and Meditation".

Hi Johnny,

If you haven't already settled on a meditation approach, you may find this helpful. This article discusses meditation for beginners with the approach used in my school of Buddhism, Zen.

link -> MRO meditation article

The article you linked to seems very good. The person who wrote it seems to know what they're talking about.

My best wishes for your efforts. I hope this helps.
