Litany Against Fear
Step 1:
Perform a relaxation/opening ritual of your choice

Step 2:
Make an image of a desert landscape:

	The sand is stark white.  There is no sign of life upon 
	the sand.  In the distance see an oasis, green grass, 
	palm trees, abundant life.  Between you and the oasis 
	is a stretch of red sand having a path of black sand 
	leading to the oasis.  Scattered along the sides of the 
	path and throughout the red band are bleached white 
	human skeletons.  There are a number of people standing 
	at the beginning of the path.

Step 3:
Make an image of people starting down the path toward the oasis:

	As they start, a dark cloud forms at the other end of 
	the path.  As they proceed the cloud moves down the path 
	toward them.  As the cloud approaches, lightning begins 
	within it.  The people become afraid and start to run in 
	all directions.  Some run back down the path to the 
	white sand.

	Others flee to the sides out through the red sand.  Each 
	person running in the red sand is struck by lightening 
	and turned into a skeleton.

Step 4:
Make an image of yourself standing at the start of the path:

	If your fear is for another, make an image of that person 
	standing beside you.  If the other is a child or loved 
	one, they are holding your hand.

	Know that if you do not go to the oasis, you will die 
	slowly in the white sand.  Know that if you run from the 
	path in fear you will die violently in the red sand.

Step 5:
Make the following image:

	You begin to walk down the path.  Recite the following:

		Fear is the mind killer.  It is the little death 
		which leads to total annihilation.

	As the cloud reaches you recite the following:

		I will face my fear, let it pass through me 
		and over me.

	See the cloud pass through you and around you and recite:

	When it is gone I will turn and see the path of my fear,
	and I will be all the remains.

	Turn and see the cloud continue down the path and slowly 

Step 6:
Make the following image:

	You complete your walk up the path to the oasis.  See its 
	beauty, feel the cool grass, smell all the scents of the 
	life around you.

        Know that you have transcended your fear and will survive.

Step 7:
Perform a relaxation/closing ritual of your choice.

This ritual was derived from _Dune_, by Frank Herbert.
