Kristen Ulmer: Extreme skier tells us to shift into fear

Once hailed as the best extreme skier in the world, Kristen Ulmer has come to value fear. She has learned that fear is not here to cause us problems. In fact, the only true issue we face with fear is our misguided reaction to it (not the fear itself). So we need to rebuild our understanding of fear from the ground up.

Kristen Ulmer is a thought leader and master facilitator who offers a game-changing approach to fear that has never been seen before. Armed with incredible personal experience, Ulmer was labeled “fearless” by the media during her era as the best woman extreme skier in the world for 12 years. She’s also spent 14 years studying Zen and working with thousands of clients, until today she acknowledges that label is not only impossible but undesirable. Ulmer thus seeks to end our humanity-wide war against fear as a way to not only resolve many common, epidemic problems we face, but to allow us greater access to our whole-mind potential. Her book: The Art of Fear: Why Conquering Fear Won’t Work and What to Do Instead, was just released on June 13, 2017. See her website.
