Event description

Description

How can we live without fear? We need steady awareness accompanied by mindfulness, inner probing, well-directed effort, and unwavering focus - our allies in this quest for fearlessness. First we need to see how we bow to fear. Then we put a spade into the earth and begin the great work of uprooting it forever. Drawing on her decades of introspective experience, Ayyā Medhānandī will guide us through the development of intrepidity.

All levels of practitioners are welcome.
