Fear Hack is a workshop,

that started as an experiment.

I did it because I noticed

that fear was stopping me.

Then I realised it stops us all


At a Fear Hack we look fear in the eye

and we see it for what it is.

We reframe our relationship with fear

and we build new strategies.

We deal with things like “Imposter Syndrome”


The problem is

that fear freezes us up.


What if we could unlock ourselves

by changing our relationship

with fear itself?



Fear Hack is about how

we get unstuck

and release our creativity

A full workshop (roughly 2 -2.5 hours) includes

– The Fear Wall – what is fear?

– A Fear Dig – what are your fears?

– Fear Friend – what have you learned and what will you do now?


The Fear Hack can be shorter

We can expose fear quicker

The extra time is to help the understanding and your actions


The “Fear Wall” is key

We get to share

and see what fear is.


We see patterns

and start to ask questions


What is fear?

Where does it exist?

What is it doing?


We do this in a tent at a festival

or in a basement in the city.

Now there is also a Fear Hack book.
