Fierce & Fearless – Anger, Fear and the Zen Path of Transformation
5-Week Home Study Course
This course is about how to transform the energies of anger and fear into fierce love, and how to operate in such a way that you live a fearless, free and vigorous life.
Based on the teachings of samurai-warrior-turned-Zen-teacher Suzuki Shosan (1579-1655), Daizan Roshi will take you through the unique and extraordinary practices that Shosan taught for working with powerful negative emotions. We will look at anger, hate and resentment, which, when transformed in the right way becomes that fierce dedication to practice. We will also look at the forces of fear, particularly around loss and death, which, when transformed, become fearlessness and courage.
This course will help you deal with the deep suffering of hate and aversion and find in its place a fierce sense of love. By following the talks, meditations and additional practices you find what it means to be fearless and will be able to approach all of life with more of that warrior-Zen spirit.

Overall I really think it was excellent. The topics addressed in the course are so important and I haven’t often had them addressed by other teachers. These are topics that truly will be with me for the rest of my life, and can be practised over and over at different levels.Patrizia
