Fearlessness in Everyday Life: Course 4
with Amy Conway
January 3 / 7:00 PM - January 31 / 9:00 PM
Learning to work with our anxiety, we are not blocked by fear.
Learning to work with our anxiety, we are not blocked by fear. Through an exploration of the Buddhist teachings of mind and the nature of reality, we learn to see clearly. We dare to face life and death as they are. The meditator, open to uncertainty, goes beyond the emotions of hope and fear to experience equanimity.
The courses are weekly, interactive, communal, and create a learning environment where the teachings are intimate and relevant. We train in meditation, and use inquiry, dialogue, and contemplative arts throughout the classes.
