Get Off The Relentless Treadmill of Ongoing Symptom Control

Helping You Permanently Resolve Issues Associated with Fear or Anxiety

If you try to avoid, ignore, conquer or control fear, this leads to emotional issues. Kristen helps you resolve these issues.

New methods, modalities, therapies and apps are being created every day to solve the most “prevalent mental health disorder around the globe,” which are anxiety issues. And, they work. They help you feel better for a moment or a day.

But alas, if you don’t keep your chosen method up, the issue only comes back. Not to mention, in all this, we’ve yet to hear an explanation of why anxiety issues exist in the first place.

That is changing.

When industry-wide efforts have failed for too long, it’s time to completely re-think and re-boot what we’re doing.

After 33+ years of real-world experience and research, Kristen Ulmer has done just that. No more relaxation or breathing techniques, no more training your brain, no more meditation just to get through a day. You’re about to go on a journey that first explains, in clear terms, exactly why you have a fear or anxiety issue in the first place, and what to do about it so you’re no longer part of a growing statistic.

This is the change in this field, that you’ve been waiting for.

The May 2022 What’s Next call addressed addictions. One of Kristen’s examples was sugar. It really clicked for me and I’ve cut out desserts. (I know processed foods still contain it, but just saying no to candy, etc. is still a big win on many levels!) Thank you, Kristen!

I noticed that I felt lighter. In the days that followed, I noticed that my light feeling became clarity of mind. As the days went, the clarity didn’t go away (as I feared it would) and I began to notice that my emotions were more translucent and rose and fell, rather than overcoming me or creating a suffocating fog. I kept thinking it would wear off, but it hasn’t.

When I rebuilt my relationship with Fear from the ground up, there were career side benefits. My superiors started commenting on observable improvements in my performance. After about 2.5 years I was promoted to supervisor. I caught on more, and began to apply what I had learned with Kristen directly to my new work challenges. And now, I’ve been promoted to manager, which includes an immediate 70% pay raise.

The Art of Fear is an authentic, original, and deeply helpful guide for turning fear to your advantage. Drawing on a lifetime’s experience as a top-ranked extreme skier, Zen practitioner and sports coach, Kristen Ulmer offers us a manual for living with freedom and joy in the midst of all the competing voices that arise to derail us on the journey. This is a book that comes directly from a courageous heart, and should inspire you to live with the same radical courage!

The Art of Fear

Why Conquering Fear Doesn't Work and What To Do Instead

A revolutionary guide to acknowledging fear and developing the tools we need to build a healthy relationship with this confusing emotionand 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 twelve years), Ulmer knows fear well. In this conversation-changing book, 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 readers 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 over 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.
