    Even though we don’t like to admit it, fear governs much of our lives. From major decisions about life and love to whom we make eye contact with on the street, fear holds us captive to events of the past and wary of the unknown future. Thankfully, the Heart Sutra, a profound and much-loved text, offers simple instructions on how to release ourselves from the rule of fear.

    Join Rev. angel Kyodo williams Sensei at Brooklyn Zen Center on Saturday, May 10th at 11:15am for a personal and intimate look at the role fear plays throughout our lives, and how we can liberate its powerful energy so we can truly be of service to our selves, loved ones and the world.

    Called “the most intriguing African-American Buddhist,” Rev. angel Kyodo williams Sensei is one
    of only two black women Zen “Senseis” or teachers, a leading voice for Transformative Social Change
    and author of Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living With Fearlessness and Grace. She notes, “Without
    inner change, there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters.”
