Acharya Gaylon Ferguson begins the second week of his Tricycle Retreat, Natural Bravery, with bowing as an act of bravery. Why is bowing an act of bravery? As Gaylon says, “Bowing expresses a basic openness and appreciation of others.” When we are afraid, we are closed off. When we are brave, we can open to the world. Watch a preview video below.
