I studied with the Tibetan Buddhist Chogyam Trungpa in the 70’s and 80’s in Barnet, Vermont and in Boulder, Colorado.  Although Trungpa was not my first meditation teacher, he taught me how to become a “Sacred Warrior”.  That has helped me to understand my spiritual path, and created my ability to rise above the  fear that we all have at one time or another in life.   Fearlessness is the first real sign of Warriorship.  Understanding that your soul is always going to exist, even when your body dies, makes it easier to live fearlessly.
