JUNE 17 WORKING WITH FEAR
As Buddhist practitioners we need to learn how to work skillfully with fear and go beyond it. Fear is one of the biggest obstacles we can have when we are in the world and trying to behave in a way that benefits others. When we are trying to reduce and eventually eliminate habitual patterns that harm ourselves, fear can arises and keeps us from abandoning negative patterns of body, speech, and mind. This teaching examined skillful ways to work with fear.
