Thich Nhat Hanh explores the psychology of fear. He examines the origins of fear and offers readers exercises and practices which will help them deal with the toxic effects of fear in their lives. Speaking from his lifetime of mindfulness, he writes about peace, happiness and freedom that lie waiting for those brave enough to face their fears. He writes that being aware of our subconscious and facing its difficulties make us better human beings. Our disability to deal with fear is merely our failure to look deep within ourselves for the truth. He explains that practicing mindfulness will help us understand the true meaning of our fears and discover ways to eliminate the emotions which keep us down. Reacting by fear has never helped anyone, and it is only by moving past it that we can explore the true reality of the human psyche.
