Fear is always a force in our lives, but it is especially powerful during this time.  The coronavirus pandemic puts all our lives at risk. Society and our environment seem to be crumbling.  Many Shambhalians are also facing the fears that come with ageing and death.  

At the heart of Shambhala Buddhism is a unique and powerful practice for conquering fear.  Subtle and profound, this practice goes far beyond mindfulness. It is a step-by-step technique that challenges us to overcome fear by revealing its true nature.

In this program we will review the Buddhist remedies for fear and the other strong emotions found in the mindfulness and compassion traditions, and introduce the powerful meditation for conquering fear as taught by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham. The program will include guided meditation.
