I spent a lot of my early career writing and leading a workshop on the topic of fear. In light of the fear and related emotions many are feeling right now with regard to the presidential election, recent acts of terrorism, increased hate crimes, and police violence, to name just a few concerns, I wanted to revisit that topic of fear. I want to talk about how and why a fearful state of mind can leave people susceptible to those who fan the flames of fear to get money, their vote, and so on, and how individuals can reduce the fear they experience in order to reduce stress and protect themselves from manipulation.

Being in the present provides the opportunity to have that free state of mind.
