Learning to work with our anxiety, we are not blocked by fear. Through an exploration of Buddhist teachings on 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.

Fearlessness in Everyday Life is an experiential presentation, using meditation to open to the groundlessness, uncertainty, and creativity of the world as it is.

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.

Prerequisites: Contentment and Joy in Everyday Life.
