The practice of working with fear in the Buddhist tradition allows one to enter the present more fully.  Everyone experiences times of bravery and cowardice.  Rather than developing a cocoon of protection and removing oneself from the present situation, it is only through staying with the fear that one can attain fearlessness.  This is not a religious course, but it is about studying and working with these traditional and time proven meditational techniques and exercises that allow one to enter the now of everyday life. Four Mondays: November 4,  11, 25, and December 2,  6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
