Book Description: Do you wish you could swim, have fun and exercise in water wherever you go? Get to the heart of the problem. Once you overcome fear, you can learn to swim. You cannot learn what to do with your arms and legs if you're afraid you might not live. What is swimming? First, it’s confidence in water. When you’re confident, you can then learn strokes. If you haven’t learned strokes and breathing, chances are you don’t feel safe. Feeling safe—knowing how to prevent panic and remain in control—is your next step. Once you OWN your safety, you can learn any stroke you desire. Conquer Your Fear of Water advances these ideas: 1. Learning to swim and breathe comfortably requires confidence in water 2. The basic steps of overcoming fear in water are different from what has been historically taught 3. You can’t learn to swim if you’re not in control 4. Overcoming fear is an engaging, yet simple personal process 5. Overcoming fear and learning to swim is fun Readers wrote: "I really like that you stress having fun first and being comfortable…. The book is full of fantastic advice. It’s working for me. I now know I will not pass on my fear to my children. You will make a difference in millions of lives." —D.K. "This book is very, very impressive and leaves no doubt in my mind why your system works. The book does a tremendous job of sharing your method. The concepts, the language, and the detailed steps… are easy to understand. You anticipate and explain in great detail a lot of the things that happen in the water that scare novices. Your book answered a lot of questions I have had, and explained a lot of what I have experienced in the water." —S.N. No matter where you are with your swimming today, it’s just the right place to begin. To move from here to there in water with ease and the ability to stop and rest without needing the bottom or the side of the pool, start at the beginning and skip no steps. Swimming comes automatically and naturally, the same way you learned to walk. Formal strokes are not part of this book. This course has been taught and honed since 1983 by Transpersonal Swimming Institute in Berkeley, California. The author founded this swim school exclusively for adults afraid in water. It sets a new standard for all teaching.
