The Art of Fear: Why Conquering Fear Won't Work and What to Do Instead
The Art of Fear
Why Conquering Fear Won't Work and What to Do Instead
Paperback      ISBN: 0062423444
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 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.

In this conversation-changing book, a former professional extreme skier revolutionizes our understanding of fear and provides the tools we need to build a healthy relationship with this complex emotion—and use it as a positive force in our lives. We all feel fear. Yet we are often told to ignore it, overcome it, push past it. But to what benefit? This is the essential question that guides Kristen Ulmer's remarkable exploration in The Art of Fear. Once recognized as the best extreme skier in the world (a title she held for twelve years), Ulmer knows this emotion well. She argues that fear is not inherently detrimental to our mental health—in fact, the only true issue we face is our reaction to fear (not the fear itself). Rebuilding our understanding of fear from the ground up, Ulmer begins by unpacking fear and the human experience, exploring the function of the Lizard Brain and how that primordial self has evolved to meet (or not) modern society. In this context, fear becomes just one of 10,000 voices in our mind, and one to honor alongside joy, love, gratitude, and our many other emotions. Introducing a mindfulness exercise called "Shift," Ulmer teaches us how to access fear and begin transforming our relationship to this challenging emotion. Informed by her own complicated relationship with fear and her insights as a Zen Mindset facilitator, The Art of Fear will change the way we think about fear and help us use it to improve our lives.

Vintage Posters from the Golden Age of Winter Sport
Paperback      ISBN: 0957148372
From the 19th to 20th century, skiing underwent great changes as it rose in popularity—as did the advertisements and art of the sport, which have since become collectors' items Immigrant Scandinavian gold miners chasing the Gold Rush mid-19th century introduced skiing to the United States. By the turn of the 20th century, skiing had emerged from its utilitarian origins to become a fashionable sport in both Europe and North America, and a wave of new, stylish resorts emerged. By the 1930s, skiing was by far the most popular winter pastime for the rich and famous—combining adventure, fashion, and exclusivity. The graphic art of the posters advertising this burgeoning sport have become collectors' items. The Art of Skiing is a beautiful collection of the finest examples of poster art. Organized by country and resort, it uses posters from the Beekley Collection—the largest private collection of ski art in the world—to reflect the changing trends in skiing fashion and technique, and investigates the most popular resorts, their establishment, and their development.
