The Warrior’s Armor; Fearlessness & Meditation (podcast)

Play

In every moment there is a choice; do we put up a barrier, shielding ourselves from pain and embarrassment? Or do we open up fully to our world?  In this episode of the Meditation In The City podcast, Acharya Eric Spiegel describes how the confidence of meditation helps us live our lives fearlessly. This talk was recorded live at our Weekly Dharma Gathering.
