The Fearlessness in Everyday Life course mixes meditation with the vastness of space beyond concept. Through an exploration of the Buddhist teachings of emptiness and clear seeing, the meditation opens to the groundlessness, uncertainty and creativity of the world as it is. By exploring the entrapping emotions of hope and fear, we learn to soar fearlessly like the mythical bird known as the Garuda.
This is the fourth course in the Way of Shambhala curriculum. The prerequisites for this course are Joy in Everyday Life and Contentment in Everyday Life. The first course in the curriculum, Meditation in Everyday Life is recommended but not a prerequisite.

Shambhala always has a generosity policy for its classes. Please pay at the level you can. No one will be turned away for financial reasons. Those who are able to pay at the "patron" level generously support those who cannot pay the full tuition.

The Way of Shambhala series provides a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation and is composed of Shambhala Training Levels I-V, plus an accompanying series of five-week 'In Everyday Life' courses. The curriculum is designed to be applicable to the complexity of our daily lives. With gentleness and precision we can develop courage and sanity in these troubled times of uncertainty.
