Rabbi Gabriel Benayon, a Shliach in Panama city for eighteen years, released a book titled “From My Anxiety to Your Happiness”. In it he relates his personal journey through anxiety, obsessive thoughts and panic attacks.
After a traumatic family situation at the age of 20, and having experienced anxiety firsthand, Rabbi Benayon came to the understanding that Hashem wanted him to be a Shliach, so that he could utilize his background to help others overcome their own issues.
For the last 15 years he developed his own method of therapy based on the teachings of chassidus, as well as his own personal experiences.
The book gives the reader the tools to understand how anxiety activates and how to channel it in a positive direction, thus allowing him or her to overcome it, leading the reader to be able to actualize his or her potential.
The book was originally released six years ago in Spanish and Portuguese, and has since sold over 19,000 copies.
Since the release, Rabbi Benayon has been invited to lecture all over Latin America and the US.
The book is available for purchase online, in all Judaica stores of Crown Heights, and throughout the New York area.
