Confronting Fear with Peter Banki, Ph.D (2:30-4pm)

Fear is not the opposite of courage. In fact, very often the two go together. Often we are not even aware that we are frightened of something, or the extent to which fear is in the driver's seat in so many important aspects of our lives. Fear is not necessary bad, it is there to protect us, but sometimes the protection prevents us from taking beautiful risks.   

In this workshop, rather than work to overcome fear, more modestly we will simply seek to feel the fear. Without being willing to feel the fear and dwell in it, there is no chance of overcoming it. 

The psyche is very complex, it can let go of things, only once it feels them. Often the thing we are we most frightened of, is the very thing we most have to confront. What we are most afraid of is usually where we have to go. This workshop will help you to be in that space.
