How to be Fearless

Even though we don't like to admit it, fear governs much of our lives. From major decisions about life and love to whom we make eye contact with on the street, fear holds us captive to events of the past and wary of the unknown future. Thankfully, the Heart Sutra, a profound and much-loved text offers simple instructions on how to release ourselves from the rule of fear. Now it's time to apply it.

Join Rev. angel Kyodo williams Sensei for a personal and intimate look at the role fear plays throughout our lives, and how we can liberate its powerful energy so we can truly be of service to our selves, loved ones and the world.

These teacher-led sittings provide an opportunity for the Sangha to meet with NYI teachers for meditation, a Dharma talk and dialogue to address practice issues.

Fee by donation: Suggested starting donation is $15 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. For this event  all donations are split evenly between the teacher(s) and NYI.
