I've read and have been told to always run rich of peak and never go lean of peak are there dangers of going lean of peak?

Danger?  Probably not until you lean it to the point it quits.  Lower life on engine components?  Possibly, but that's a raging debate.  I suggest you follow the guidance from the engine manufacturer.

you might overheat the cylinder heads when going lean of peak.... fuel contributes to he cooling of the engine. If you go lean of peak, and forget to adjust in the descend-phase, you'll also get a rough running engine sooner.
