Most of us struggle with some kind of fear. Fear holds enormous power because it focuses our attention and makes us ready for action. Fear is also a great manipulator, often used to form allegiances and political movements. But psychology tells us that 90% of our daily waking thoughts are fear-based about things that are never going to happen.Fear touches the most tender, vulnerable and deeply personal parts of us. Fear can be very destructive when we allow ourselves to become stuck in the fear, but it can also be a strong motivator. Upon close examination, we discover that the source of most fears rests within our society, politics and religions. This class will take a light-hearted approach to this topic while offering simple ways to reduce the presence of fear in our lives.
