Although anxiety, fear and worry are at a record high, we have every reason to be optimistic. By practicing meditation and special ways of thinking based upon Buddha's timeless wisdom, we can gradually and definitely let go of our fears, replace them with constructive and peaceful states of mind, and thereby become a fearless person! In this way we become our own protector and a protector for others.
During this special evening talk and guided meditation, Gen Zamling will share some profound and practical wisdom about the real source of our anxiety and fear, and how we can begin to let go. Enjoy this talk on its own, or as an introduction to a 7-week series of classes called "Become Fearless."
