It's tough to truly be fearless unless you understand what fear is. Here's my talk to UCSF Surgeons about How To Overcome Fear by Harnessing it (edited by the talented Jordan Dozzi-Perry)
Watch full lecture here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-JU-VN_WXs #The Fear Project And, of course, to dive deeper, there's always the book http://www.jaimalyogis.com/the-fear-project/

Beautiful new website for The Most Fearless is up, replete with recent press, photos, teaser, and more. Nice job Heather Kessinger, Jordan Dozzi-Perry, and all the shredders in Bangladesh - Shahadat Hosen, Rashed Alam, and many more. http://www.themostfearless.com/

Whether you're just getting into mindfulness or you've been at it for years, you'll want to get my friend Arnold Kozak's new book, MINDFULNESS A-Z. Arnie is a longtime mindfulness teacher and a former psychology fellow at Harvard Medical School where he finished in PhD. I've been a fan of Arnie's writing for years, which is why I'm also highly honored to be TEACHING MY FIRST EVER MINDFULNESS RETREAT with Arnie next summer at the Kripalu Institute. The working title is: FINDING YOUR TRUE SELF THROUGH MINDFULNESS AND NATURE. It will happen June 10-12 (2016) on the beautiful lake at the Kripalu Institute (Kripalu.org) so save the date.
Thanks Wisdom Publications for bringing us together. Get Mindfulness A-Z here
