Who among us has not been paralyzed by fear? In THE FEAR PROJECT, award-winning journalist and surfer Jaimal Yogis sets out to better understand fear – why does it so often dominate our lives, what makes it tick, and is there even a way to use it to our advantage? In the process, he explores meditation techniques, both new and modern, plunges his readers into great white shark-infested waters and brings them along to surf a deadly 40+ foot waves in the dead of winter. He takes his readers to some of the leading neuroscience labs and gives them access to conversations with some of the world’s best extreme athletes, mindfulness teachers, and psychologists. In this entertaining, often laugh-out-loud narrative, Yogis also treats himself like a guinea pig for all of his research, pushing his own fears repeatedly to the limits—in his sport, in his life, and in love. Ultimately, Yogis shares with his readers the best strategies to reframe fear and find courage and compassion.
