Overview

If you find yourself running away from fear, you’re running in the wrong direction. Fear demands that we move toward it, face it, and hear its messages. When we fail to do this, the price is high—chronic anxiety, sleeplessness, damaged relationships, skyrocketing pharmaceutical use, and more. In her enlightening book Joy from Fear, clinical psychologist Dr. Carla Marie Manly explains that fear is not the enemy we thought it was; fear, when faced with awareness, is the powerful ally and best friend we all need.

Dr. Manly's work is firmly based in science but goes far beyond presenting the dry facts. Joy from Fear offers page after page of real-life examples, insights, easy-to-use tools, and life-changing exercises. Coining the term transformational fear, Dr. Manly illuminates the importance of embracing fear’s messages for a transformed life filled with freedom and lasting happiness.

What People are Saying About This

Author of Care of the Soul and Ageless Soul - Thomas Moore


Like other strong emotions, fear has two sides: the destructive and the 'transformational,' to use Carla Marie Manly’s word. In this enlightening book she shows real empathy for her readers, knowing how crippling fear can be, and sorts out its many ingredients. She shows a way, clearly and with certainty, to shift from fear that can tear a life apart to reimagining the role of fear in life. This book goes deep and is rooted in the experience of both fear itself and helping people deal effectively with their fears. The book is also a model on how to write therapeutically for the concerned reader. I feel lighter for having read it.
