Fear is rampant in our world. On a societal level, we experience uncertainty about the future of our planet and our civilization. On a personal level, fear can manifest as anything from a nagging sense of self-doubt to a static background of anxiety.

No matter how fear presents itself, it is necessary to examine how we cope. Do we drown our anxieties in vices or distractions? Does a fear-based worry prevent us from feeling confident in who we are?

In this course, we'll open ourselves up to the possibility that we can work with our relationship to fear through meditation. We'll explore the exhilarating sensation of "just being" with our fears as a first step towards developing a genuine, unshakeable self-confidence.
