Becoming Fearless

Union of Appearance and Emptiness

This is an in-person event with livestream attendance available for members!

Every day in our hearts all we wish for, is to be happy all the time and avoid all suffering. However, without abandoning our negative habits of mind, our delusions such as anger and selfishness, we will never be able to fulfill these wishes.

All our delusions come from the root of our self-grasping ignorance, an inner darkness and confusion that does not see reality correctly. Because of this ignorance, we experience endless hallucinations of fear, anxiety and all other negative painful emotions.

To abandon this ignorance, we need to realize the truth of emptiness. Emptiness is not nothingness but is the real nature of things and a very profound and meaningful object. If we realize emptiness directly, we will attain permanent liberation from all suffering and the pure peace of enlightenment.

In this special workshop, we will begin to understand the wisdom of emptiness and how to apply it in daily life to transform all our life experiences, integrating them into the blissful path of wisdom.

Everybody welcome!
