Publisher's Summary

A revolutionary guide to acknowledging fear and developing the tools we need to build a healthy relationship with this confusing emotion - and use it as a positive force in our lives.

We all feel fear. Yet we are often taught to ignore it, overcome it, push past it. But to what benefit? This is the essential question that guides Kristen Ulmer's remarkable exploration of our most misunderstood emotion in The Art of Fear

Once recognized as the best extreme skier in the world (an honor she held for 12 years), Ulmer knows fear well. In this conversation-changing audiobook, she argues that fear is not here to cause us problems - and that in fact, the only true issue we face with fear is our misguided reaction to it (not the fear itself). 

Rebuilding our experience with fear from the ground up, Ulmer starts by exploring why we've come to view it as a negative. From here, she unpacks fear and shows it to be just one of 10,000 voices that make up our reality, here to help us come alive alongside joy, love, and gratitude. Introducing a mindfulness tool called "Shift", Ulmer teaches listeners how to experience fear in a simpler, more authentic way, transforming our relationship with this emotion from that of a draining battle into one that’s in line with our true nature. 

Influenced by Ulmer's own complicated relationship with fear and her more than 15 years as a mindset facilitator, The Art of Fear will reconstruct the way we react to and experience fear - empowering us to easily and permanently address the underlying cause of our fear-based problems and setting us on course to live a happier, more expansive future.

A strong finish

This book is a roller coaster in a good way. I was able to work myself through some critical things while listening to it. I am deeply grateful for this new awareness that I have. Just a little more wisdom in my day now.

Thank you,

Big challenge.

I like this because it challenges me to look differently at my life. It is a hard concept and I’m scared to dive in. But I’m ready and this book is a great tool for big shifts if you want that. It is relatable and it reads well if your not ready yet.
I gave the story a lower score as I felt it repeated itself and I lost interest as a result.
