Living Fully: Creating a Wise Relationship with Fear, An Online Course
About This Event
During times of uncertainty and change, fear can be pervasive and at times overwhelming. However, it isn’t that fear hasn’t been there all along. In fact, it has, and may manifest itself in different forms such as anger, resentment/judgment, and anxiety. Certain circumstances can bring it from a “lurking” nature into a full-blown existence. When fear is seen for what it truly can be -an invitation- we can begin to work with fear as our greatest awakener to the limitless reservoir of love, compassion and safety within ourselves. Fear can individually and collectively awaken us if we have the skillful tools to work with it.
In this 4-week online course, we will discover how mindfulness allows us to approach fear from a larger presence. We will learn attitudes that help us depersonalize from our fear and allow for more space to work with it. We will explore ways that fear shows up in our body, mind, emotional state, and behaviors so we can be aware of when we are caught in the headlock of fear. We will learn natural ways of calming our nervous system and gently begin to turn towards the fear rather than away from it. With mindfulness and compassion, we will begin to build inner safety to transform fear and enter our heart.
This course will meet live each week via Zoom. There will be a guided practice to coincide with each week’s teaching along with journal prompts and poems found on the Copper Beech website in the password protected Living Fully class page. A private Facebook group will also be available for those who wish to join for added support and community during this course.

As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!
