Do you find it hard to get past your fears?  How do you hold your fear? This workshop explores how one can make positive changes in one’s life using the techniques found in Susan Jeffers’ book Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway. The day-long workshop will help participants develop a toolkit for empowering themselves through group discussion, writing, interactive activities, and handouts. Suggested reading of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway, by Susan Jeffers, Ph.D.

Fear holds us back without our realizing it. We can hold it either in power or in pain. In this workshop, students will gently come face to face with their fears and find ways to make their lives work despite their fears. Topics to be covered include: the five truths about fear, taking responsibility for ourselves, evaluating our support systems, making win-win decisions, and learning positive choices for our lives.

9:00-5:00pm Fee: $75 with lunch, $65 without. Pre-registration is required.

How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all, the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious teeming with creatures beyond number- living things both large and small.
- Psalm 104:24-25
