Learning to Fly

"I breathe deeply and invite my muscles to release their burden of fear. When I neither force myself to be fearless nor run away from the danger, an area of freedom opens up within which I discover new options. I cease being a victim of my fear."

Sam Keen

How about talk to an expert.

Sam Keen Ph.D., author of numerous best selling books, including his latest, "Learning To Fly" shares his insights and discoveries gained through his experiences on (believe it or not).. the trapeze. Sam's late blooming love affair with the trapeze is a perfect metaphor from which we can all learn about the art of living--risk taking, transcending limits, dealing with fear, trusting, timing, letting go, living on the edge, and falling with grace. In "Taking Flight" Sheri and Sam explore the various expressions and hindrances of fear and ways to move through it.

Sam Keen has always dreamed of flying. He says, "Since my earliest awareness, I have felt an unnameable force drawing and pushing me to become airborne, to soar, to escape from rigid habits of mind, to fly free." Two months before his sixty-second birthday, Sam saw a TV ad for a trapeze training program and he leapt at the opportunity to enroll. Five years later, at age sixty-seven, he now owns his own trapeze rig and teaches "Upward Bound" trapeze workshops, making the trapeze accessible to everyone. He works with inner city school children, abused women, recovering drug addicts and ordinary men and women who are trying to get over their fears and realize their potential. Even Fergie, the Duchess of York has flown with Sam. For the past thirty years, Sam has been at the forefront of the effort to define what it means to be spiritual today. He is a graduate of Harvard Divinity School and holds a Ph.D. in the philosophy of religion from Princeton University. For many years Sam served as a consulting editor of Psychology Today and is the author of thirteen books, including the New York Times bestseller, "Fire in the Belly" and his latest book, "Learning to Fly: Trapeze-Reflections on Fear, Trust and the Joy of Letting Go."
