Tibetan Tea House Talk: Fear and Fearlessness


with Jennifer Woodhull
November 10 / 11:00 AM - November 10 / 12:00 PM

Running away from fear is fear; fighting pain is pain;
trying to be brave is being scared.


—Alan Watts


We human beings seem to be a fearful lot. We’re afraid of pain, loss, failure, disapproval, loneliness … the list is endless. Our typical strategy is to figure out what’s causing the pain, loss, etc. and make it go away, taking the fear with it; but it seems there’s always something else to take its place.


What would happen if we turned to look at the experience of fear, itself? Join us at our next Tibetan Tea House Sunday talk to explore a different strategy: the practice of spiritual warriorship known as fearlessness.


Meditation begins at 11 AM with basic instruction. The talk will start at 11:30.  For directions, see http://www.sopheagallery.com/SOPHEA/Map.html or phone 021 786-1544 or 082-896-6426.


Do plan to stay afterwards for lunch, if you can. The Tibetan Tea House serves unusual, healthy and exceptionally tasty vegetarian and vegan fare; and as one of the few authentic spiritual resources in Cape Town, it deserves our support.
