To End Suffering, Escape into Discomfort

An Interview with Shinzen Young

In the months leading up to the 2016 election, therapists began reporting an uptick in patients reporting anxiety and depression related to the possibility of Donald Trump winning the presidency. As Slate columnist, Michelle Goldberg, wrote in September 2016, “Victims of Trump-induced anxiety describe nightmares, insomnia, digestive problems, and headaches.
