The Tibetan Art of Serenity by Christopher Hansard


The Tibetan Art of Serenity by Christopher Hansard

In the ancient Tibetan Boen tradition, the secret of serene, successful living is to have no fear. But in our demanding society, where stress is the norm, fearfulness can become a way of life.In this inspiring book, leading Tibetan Boen practitioner Christopher Hansard explains the 'twelve types of fear' believed by traditional teaching to affect our lives. He shares with us age-old techniques for facing and overcoming these fears, and shows how without them we can better connect with our deepest selves, transform relationships and find increased peace, humour and confidence. Drawing from his deep personal knowledge of Tibetan teachings, and with easy-to-follow exercises and inspiring case studies, Christopher shows us how we can stop living with our fears - and start living our life.
