FEARLESSNESS in Everyday Life

FEARLESSNESS is represented by the Garuda, a mythical bird that is born in space and soars in vastness. Extending beyond hope and fear, we find the immeasurable mind. This class will be an experiential presentation, rather than a scholarly one, using meditation to open to the groundlessness, uncertainty, and creativity of the world as it is. By exploring the emotions of hope and fear, we learn to soar fearlessly like the mythical bird known as the Garuda.

Each class allows for an open discussion. Themes covered in this course include groundlessness, impermanence and death, hope and fear, and the mahayana teachings of emptiness and bodhicitta.

Fearlessness in Everyday Life is the 4th class in the Way of Shambhala I series of classes. Pre-requisite for this class is the preceding class Joy in Everyday Life. You must have attended at least 3 of the JIEL classes to move forward with Fearlessness.
