The Gift of Fear


We’re often asked by parents, who have daughters going off to college, if we offer woman’s self-defense courses. In most cases, what parents are really asking for is “can you teach my daughter how to defend herself against a larger, stronger assailant in one or two days”? The short and honest answer is no. However, what parents can do to immediately empower their daughters is have them read the book, Gift of Fear, by Gavin de Becker. In this book, de Becker explains why the power of intuition is the best protection we have against violence. Here’s a 52 minute video of Gavin De Becker speaking at St. Francis College about intuition, denial and how it impacts on our survival.
