‘Fearlessness in Everyday Life’ is the fourth course in the Everyday Life series of teachings. This programme is held as a series of 5 evening classes. It offers a glimpse of how we can transform fear and investigate ultimate reality.

Learning to work with our anxiety, we are not blocked by fear. Through an exploration of the Buddhist teachings of mind and the nature of reality, we learn to see clearly. We dare to face life and death as they are. The meditator, open to uncertainty, goes beyond the emotions of hope and fear to experience equanimity.
