Grow Your Leadership Book Club: The Anxious Lawyer

August 28 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm

Free event! Presented by the CLA Member Engagement Committee. In collaboration with the CLA Health and Wellness Committee

Grow Your Leadership Book Club

Many lawyers feel hesitant to try meditation, which can seem alien and inaccessible from the vantage point of a professional culture that places great value on logic and reason. The authors of The Anxious Lawyer describe how meditation and mindfulness practices support a more effective and enjoyable legal practice as well as better self-understanding, more rewarding relationships, and a deeper feeling of connection with the world. The Anxious Lawyer provides a straightforward 8-week introductory program on meditation and mindfulness, created by lawyers for lawyers. The book covers instruction on simple meditation techniques; guidance for establishing a daily meditation and mindfulness practice; examples and research; practical tools; and more.

We hope many of our members try working through all or part of the 8-week process with us so we can talk about our experiences on August 28. Please consider joining us even if you do not get through all (or any) of the 8-week process. As we discuss the book, we will share our successes, struggles, barriers, and more related to attorney mindfulness and well-being.

We are committed to accessibility! Virtual events are equipped with closed captioning. To request an in-person accommodation, send us a note at or contact us at 916-516-1760 for assistance.
