About Us

"We did not come to fear the future. We came here to shape it." - President Barack Obama, September 9, 2009

We're here to see risk, provide or help find tools to address it, and to help navigate disruption - pandemic or otherwise. 

We provide tools, resources, and services for people and organizations to be resilient, to make change, and to counter fear.  We get there by anchoring, strengthening, facing our fear, growing vision, building connection, and taking action.  

We want to help people and organizations get through this long-term COVID-19 crisis, and to help hold society together while we're doing it.  We want to help people do some good in the middle, and to help us transform along the way so that we can thrive and flourish on the other side.  There's plenty to do in a massive global catastrophe, but it's overwhelming, too.  We've been getting ready for something like this for a lifetime (more on the transformation and knowing a catastrophe would be bad), and we can help you chart and evolve your own path forward.  To find what resonates.  There's transformation to be had here - in all of the realms, sectors, and corners of the world; it's going to take some doing to make it happen.  We can help.

Related, we're working to Shift the Country.  It's about fostering civic engagement at scale to help make shift happen in this unprecedented disruption + transformation.

The counterfear website and content is geared for the structure of the US; the principles and concepts can work anywhere.  Our work is funded by clients and through contributions; links are below to help out or join in.
