The Metamorphosis of Fear into Love (Larry Ward, PhD) Click here

 To “light up the incense of our hearts” is to bring mindfulness into our daily life.

Every human action perfumes the world with its fragrance. Sometimes our heart's garden is undisclosed to us, at other times it may be wilted by the wounds of time. Buddhist psychology reminds us that when the seeds of fear overrun our garden, suffering is created for others and ourselves.

Fear can be a dangerous toxin in our lives. Not only is it the source of our unquenchable thirst for power, and the root cause of harmful illusions, but also it is a painful pollutant which brings sickness, both physical and mental, to self and society.

This dharma talk looks into understanding this pollutant and practicing with its antidote. In this way we can find relief and transformation as we mindfully light up our hearts with the fragrances of goodness, wisdom, beauty and love.

Larry Ward, PhD and Peggy Rowe EdD, senior dharma teachers ordained by Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh, are the leading proponents of Engaged Buddhism in the United States. Deeply inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh, they have committed their lives to non-violent social change, healing, and transformation at all levels, from individuals & communities to the global scale. Peggy and Larry are co-authors of the book, Love's Garden: A Guide to Mindful Relationships.
