Online: Cultivating Courage in Changing Times
with Deborah Eden Tull
Friday, October 22nd, 2021 | 6:00pm – 8:00pm ET

One of the gifts of global uncertainty is that it invites us to re-learn how to move through the dark gracefully. Darkness is not the absence of light, but a vital expression of nature and the mystery itself… from which everything arises and everything will return to. How can our dharma practice support us to fear less and meet change, liminality, and the unknown with courage rather than resistance? How can we learn how to meet fear itself with an open heart, on behalf of the greater good?

As we re-awaken to the power of presence to heal all that we have pushed away as a species, the more we gain access to a hidden source of energy and resiliency with which to meet the task at hand. Discomfort and perceived obstacles are not our challenge but our invitation; not a sign of something to turn away from, but a welcoming threshold to move directly towards.

Join dharma teacher Deborah Eden Tull for a guided meditation, dharma talk, relational mindfulness, and Q&A. We will explore the innate courage of true nature and how to follow that tendril of courage in the face of fear.
