Kristen is a baller straight up. She also happens to be the author of a new book The Art of Fear.
She is also a thought leader, master facilitator and fear specialist who radically challenges existing norms around the subject of this deeply misunderstood emotion. Starting out as a mogul specialist on the US Ski team, Kristen more notoriously became recognized as being the best female big mountain extreme skier in the world, a status she kept for 12 years. Known for enormous cliff jumps and you-fall-you die descents, she became sponsored by the likes of Red Bull, Ralph Lauren, and Nikon. Her mastery of other danger sports including paragliding, ice and rock climbing, kiteboarding, adventure mountain biking, and flying trapeze also gained her the outdoor industry vote as most extreme woman athlete in North America, beating all danger-sports stars, not just skiers.
Kristen's Book The Art of Fear is not just a treatise on fear but the accumulated wisdom of years of dedicated practice.
In this episode we cover how to deal with day to day fears that may be holding you back as well as those big bogeyman fears that seem to be with us no matter what we try to do. We also cover her experience as a big mountain skier, success, injury and failure and what brought her to Zen practice.
