Overcoming Fear and Anxiety
A Special Meditation & Talk
with Kadam Morten Clausen
Meditation is a simple and direct method for connecting with an underlying sense of peace, security and a recognition of our potential for change. Gaining experience in meditation gives us a place from which to let go of fear and anxiety. It revolutionizes our outlook, enabling us to approach life with a sense of purpose and adventure.
