Working with Fear
Friday August 21st, 7pm - 9pm
With Senior FPMT teacher Don Handrick
Fear is such a powerful force in our lives – on a personal, societal, national and even global level – and it is important that we find skillful ways to work with this difficult emotion. In this session, we will explore what fear is, how it arises and what effects fear can have upon us. Most importantly, we will discuss the ways that we can use fear within our spiritual practice, enhancing our wisdom that aids in our own progress on the path as well as our compassion that strengthens our connections to others.
Generosity Policy: All programs at Lama Yeshe House are offered for free. Donations are appreciated and help us cover costs of the event, such as an offering gift to the teacher. Our main motivation is to offer the refuge of the teachings, so no one is ever unable to attend.
The suggested donation for this teaching is $20, or $75 for all of Don Handrick's teachings August 19-23.
