LIVE ONLINE COURSE: Transforming Fear with the Five Wisdoms

With Irini Rockwell

July 11 - 25, 2020

A Three-Week Class on Saturdays at 2:00 pm Atlantic Time, Starting July 11, 2020

In this unprecedented, uncertain and unpredictable world facing a pandemic we all have been living in fear of the insidious coronavirus. But perhaps the real issue is not the virus but the fear itself. There is a pandemic of fear and the emotional turmoil it causes. 

We can work with fear in an intelligent way through the profundity of the Five Wisdom Energies. They are key to emotional transmutation, revealing the great depth of Buddhist psychology and the transformative power of Tantra. An understanding of our nervous system gives us further insight. Here’s the key: your wisdom is in the darkness of your confusion. When you embrace your energy with unconditional positive regard, the apex of your struggle is the apex of your brilliance. There could be a pandemic of possibility!


  • Working with the places that scare you, your fears
  • Tuning into the subtle energy dynamics within and around you
  • Having a deeper understanding of the process of emotions
  • Discovering where and when you shine and get stuck
  • Engendering self-acceptance and self-compassion
  • Practicing verbal and nonverbal engagement
  • Engaging with a group of people interested in this journey

Course Format

A Workbook and Keynote slides will be sent to you once you have registered. They provide the training contents: writings pertinent to our topic, reading assignments from “The Five Wisdom Energies”, infographics and guidelines for experiential learning exercises.
