An Off-Week Goodie: The Gift of Fear

by Kassandra Lamb and Kirsten Weiss ~ Following up on my post last week, Trust Your Gut, here is a free master class that Kirsten found on The Gift of Fear.

Presented by Gavin de Becker, who has written a book by the same title (a national bestseller), it is clearly laid out in six YouTube videos, running between roughly 30 to 45 minutes each.

Here is a quote from the introduction to the first video that ties right in with last week’s post:

We all have a nuclear defense system – our intuition – that can keep us safe if we listen to it.

One of the distinctions made is how to tell the difference between warranted fear (something is wrong in your current environment) and unwarranted fear (anxiety/worry based on memories and imagined scenarios). De Becker claims that one can learn to actually live more free of fear, by learning which fears to listen to and which to discount.

Although I encourage you to take advantage of the entire FREE master class on using your instincts to protect yourself, there may be some topics that resonate more than others, so you can pick and choose which videos to watch.

    You’re welcome, Cheryl. Let me know what you think of it. I watched the second video and really liked that one. And I think Kirsten did the whole class.
