The Path of Meditation—and Living Life Fearlessly—is sometimes described as Warriorship.

Here’s a quote about that path, taken by myself in Barry Boyce’s office in Halifax.

He’s a longtime editor at Shambhala Sun, and the editor-in-chief of Mindful, a new magazine coming out soon. He’s also a dear, fierce, jolly, hard-working, Buddhist teacher and friend of mine for many years.
