“No Hope, No Fear, Free” with Doug Duncan Sensei
January 28, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join special guest Achariya Doug Duncan Sensei in Calgary for an auspicious Thursday night class at the Dharma Hub. Inspired by the philosopher/writer Nikos Kazantzakis, “No Hope, No Fear, Free” is a phrase Doug will share about in this lively and inspiring Dharma teaching.
Can you imagine a life where you did not expect things to go your way and could still access joy and clarity? Or to live a life where you feared no one or did not fear losing possessions? Are you clear, blissful and radiant when life does not go your way? What would you give up to be free at the core?
Doug Sensei will be sharing practical tools on this night and teaching us how to transcend hope and fear so that we can dwell in the eternal freedom of “Now”.
About the Teacher
Achariya Doug Duncan has been teaching the Buddhist path to awakening for over three decades. In 2005, Duncan founded Clear Sky Meditation Center in Cranbrook, BC. He continues to travel around the world leading retreats and classes with his partner and co-teacher Catherine Pawasarat.
