This book, which draws on the principles and practices of philosophy, is packed full of sound, concrete advice and guidance from the wise of both East and West. It shows us how to become free of fear--that tyrant of the soul by living more from the Self than the ego. Dr. Costello details the dynamics of fear from the perspective of Advaita Vedanta--its forms and figures--before presenting the nine fundamental fears with the help of the Enneagram system. There are Stoic strategies for facing fears, existential exercises, and recommended daily practices. Dr. Costello writes as both a philosopher and clinician and brings to this fascinating subject, in which we're all implicated, his erudition in both theory and therapy. The work complements his online course hosted by Udemy, "Therapy Technique for Anxiety, Phobias, & OCD," which highlights the importance of "paradoxical intention," derived from Viktor Frankl's school of philosophical psychology.
