Fear Is Not An Option

Fear Is Not An Option

by Monica Berg


Most of us are held back by the worry that things won't turn out as we hope. Achieving our highest aspirations depends on eliminating obstructive fears from our reality, rather than allowing them to drive our behaviors.

Monica Berg's experiences of four very different births, where fear is definitely not an available option, provide the foundation for the book. Berg began studying the esoteric Jewish discipline of Kabbalah at age 17. Her belief in one Creator is a running theme through Fear Is Not An Option.

Berg's work takes us on a sprawling journey through philosophy, neuroscience, and history, with a life of joy and fulfillment as the destination. The book is both a tale of personal triumph over adversity and a guide for others seeking to transform their own lives.
