Letting Go of Fear

A Daylong Retreat with Deborah Eden Tull

Sunday October 5

10am – 4pm

Santa Monica


“And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in a bud was
more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anais Nin

F.E.A.R…. False Evidence Appearing Real. Even though we know intellectually that fear does not serve us, we allow fear to delude and limit us in countless ways. We might not even be aware of the ways that fear drives us and makes us smaller than we are. Do we push fear away? Dive into it? Try to transcend it and become fearless? How do we meet fear from the wisdom and tenderness of our dharma practice? How do we become friends with fear? In this day-long retreat, through meditation, awareness exercises, dharma talks, relational mindfulness, and group discussion, we will apply the practice of conscious compassionate awareness to our relationship with fear. We will bring radical honesty, compassion, and mindful inquiry to our relationship with fear and gain tools and insights for how to experience authentic courage, equanimity, and personal freedom through awareness practice in daily life.

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing, and bring a journal & pen.
