We live in turbulent times. How can we respond wisely to the fears that naturally arise in response to both external events and internal experience? Within the framework of mindfulness teachings and drawing on methods grounded in mindfulness meditation practice, we will explore ways to respond to fear with equanimity, wisdom, and compassion. By including the many expressions of fear such as anxiety, worry and self-doubt in the field of meditative practice, we can liberate our hearts and minds from the burden of fear. By shining the light of awareness on fear when it arises, we learn to relax and trust in our capacity to meet the inherent difficulties that we encounter in human life with greater faith in the power of awareness to heal and free our minds from suffering.
