Fear is rampant in our world. On a societal level, we experience uncertainty about the future of our planet and our civilization. On a personal level, fear can manifest as anything from a nagging sense of self-doubt to a static background of anxiety.

No matter how fear presents itself, it is necessary to examine how we cope. Do we drown our anxieties in vices or distractions? Does a fear-based worry prevent us from feeling confident in who we are?

In this course, we'll open ourselves up to the possibility that we can control our relationship to fear through meditation. We'll explore the exhilarating sensation of "just being" with our fears as a first step towards developing a genuine, unshakeable self-confidence.

This course presents practical tools for acknowledging and understanding fear, and explore the Shambhala view that skillfully working with fear can actually serve as a stepping stone for personal transformation.

Rather than hide from our own existence, we will look directly into the uncertainty of our lives and get our first taste of unconditional fearlessness.

Prerequisite: None. This is a course can be taken as a follow up to Joy in Everyday Life, but participation in Joy in Everyday Life is not required.
