When she was a professional extreme skier, Kristen Ulmer was labeled as “fearless” and “fierce.” But at the time, she says she had a very toxic relationship with fear, both loving and hating it while having an addiction to it. That passionate addiction led to PTSD, injuries, and more. Kristen quit skiing and decided to study fear, and she’s discovered things about fear that others haven’t realized before. Hear her theories behind fear, embracing it and your emotions rather than always controlling them, and more!
Kristen Ulmer is a professional extreme skier who retired in 2003 to study and teach about “fear.” She’s the author of The Art of Fear: Why Conquering Fear Won’t Work and What to Do Instead.
