"The book is an important one. I’ll not teach a curriculum theory class without it in the future.”     - Clifford Mayes, Ph.D., Psy.D., prof. educational psychology, Brigham Young University

“I found [Fisher’s] delineation of the historical and theoretical contexts of ‘teaching fearlessness’ affirming. They provide a strong staging area for discussion on the role of fear and emotional intelligence in transformational learning.” 
     - Mary O’Hara, Ph.D., sociologist, activist, and teacher


The World’s Fearlessness Teachings addresses the human fear problem in a truly unique and insightful way, summarizing the teachings on fearlessness from around the world and throughout history. The author then utilizes critical integral theory (a la Wilber) as an approach to categorize the developmental and evolutionary spectrum of fear manage-ment systems known thus far. The author has spent twenty years researching the timely topic of fear and how to best manage and transform it. From this experience, he offers an educational healing vision to address the challenges of a dangerous 21st century. Fear’s empire has taken rule. It is time to resist it using the best intelligence from both sacred and secular traditions, as well as the transformational theories humanity has to offer. Fisher maps out ten fear management systems that will benefit future-positive leaders everywhere. (394pp)
