De-programming fear

Did you know that the habit of feeling irrational fear can be unlearned through awareness? “[…] not understanding the mechanisms of fear allows it to be used as a weapon or at the very least to manipulate people”, explains William Harryman, from Integral Options Cafe blog.

Check the film “A Virus Called Fear”, a Zaki Gordon Institute for Independent Filmmaking student documentary short, written and directed by Ben Fama Jr.

Very few people understand the programming of fear, and why it distorts our perceptions. While fear is a program used for our survival, fear also creates irrational beliefs that cause larger systems of fear like politics, religion and the media. “A Virus Called Fear” is short film about the conditioning of fear, and what irrational fears can lead to.
