Episode 172: Using Fear as a Tool to Pay Attention in Life: Dr. Dana Cowles

Subscribe: Spotify |

A fear of heights is conquered by learning how to fly an airplane. Who does that? Dr. Dana Cowles, that’s who!

As an emergency physician, Dr. Cowles is no stranger to facing urgent and life-threatening situations. He believes that fear and anxiety can be used as tools to get us to pay attention to what’s going on in life. This gives us the opportunity to really live an expansive life with the security and affirmation we are seeking.

Dr. Cowles is spending his time outside of the emergency room as a public speaker and plans to bring some writing into his offerings.
