In the Shambhala Buddhist tradition, there is a saying, “Unless we understand the nature of fear, we cannot know fearlessness.” Beginning September 6th, Gaylon Ferguson, Ph.D, will outline a step-by-step approach to engage fear as a direct path to transforming ourselves and our world. Read Gaylon’s retreat introduction from the Fall 2011 issue of Tricycle here.

He has been leading retreats for 35 years and is the author of Natural Wakefulness: Discovering the Wisdom We Were Born With (2009) and the forthcoming book, Natural Bravery: Fear and Fearlessness as Path to Awakening Society (2012).
