In Episode 3 of The Soul’s Work Podcast, Janice opens up about how drinking and imagining violent scenarios in her head reinforced an avoidant response to fear (and y’all, she had a lot of fear). The good news? It is absolutely possible to re-train our brains to respond to fear with more courageous responses (and collect “courage bullets” in the process!). Janice shares her letter to Fear Voice in her quest to develop a different, more compassionate relationship with fear — because fear is here to stay! 

This is the second episode of a three-part series on Core Values.
