An Online Personal Process Course with EmilyCarson
Fear has many faces, many ways it shows up in the body, mind, and emotions to create a state we commonly refer to as "anxiety". It can be mental, presenting as worry or panicked thinking; it can be emotional or psychological, arising out of our past's wellspring of unlived experience; and it can invade our physical, emotional, and mental bodies all at once from our deep, universal experiences of loneliness, impermanence, and separation. Fear's antidotes—practices like surrender, present-ness, joy, kindness in meditation, faith, and courage—each serve to dismantle a particular kind of grip anxiety has on us. Cumulatively, they have the power to free us from that prison altogether, into a state of ease, fearlessness, and possibility. In this course, we will explore the faces of and antidotes to anxiety and fear through deep personal investigation combined with contemplative sitting practice.
Online courses are conducted in a virtual classroom hosted by Blackboard Learn, a web-based online learning platform. Each Monday, you’ll get a new lesson that includes focus readings and related exercises to practice with that week. You are encouraged to post your experiences and questions in response to the exercises to a community discussion board; being willing to express and expose yourself to fellow practitioners, and to ask for help where you feel confused or disillusioned, will greatly enhance your ability to make progress in this course. It is designed to be accessible to those new to, as well as those with long experience in, personal process work.
Early registration discount: Register by Monday, October 23, and pay only $65. After that, the course fee is $75.
