Through meditation we can slowly learn how to face our fear, feel it, and not run away from it. Eventually we could learn to relax with our fear, recognize it as part of the dance of life and a doorway into wisdom.

SMILE AT FEAR
Teachings for dark times
With Sarah Coleman
16 -18 february

 

This weekend we will meditate together and explore Trungpa Rinpoche's teachings on working with fear. First we have to start where we are: find our fear, acknowledge it, touch it. Rouse inquisitiveness to find out for ourselves what is it and what's the problem. Through meditation we can slowly learn how to face our fear, feel it, and not run away from it – at least not so fast! Eventually we could learn to relax with our fear, recognize it as part of the dance of life, and a doorway into wisdom. The teachings will be drawn from both the buddhist and Shambhala traditions.

The program is for students at all levels of practice, and will consist of dharma talks, discussion groups, and lots of meditation, including individual meetings with meditation instructors. Beginners are welcome!

READING SUGGESTION: 

In Smile at Fear, Chögyam Trungpa offers us a vision of moving beyond fear to discover the innate bravery, trust, and delight in life that lies at the core of our being. Drawing on the Shambhala Buddhist teachings, he explains how we can each become a spiritual warrior--a person who faces each moment of life with openness and fearlessness.
