These are the steps of overcoming fear. Humane, gentle, fun, proven over 39 years. Learn how the water works with your body and how to be in control in water over your head without ever feeling afraid. Experience the relief of a completely new approach to a learning to swim including a blockbuster explanation of how to heal fear without effort; why you may not blame yourself for being afraid or for not learning previously. The book is the path out of fear; the very words you need to hear; the steps of learning.
With small, sensible steps that speak of learning in a new way, find your way to comfort and freedom in water, shallow and deep. If you follow the steps without pushing yourself, you cannot fail. The journey is simple and clear. The process is proven, reliable, predictable, and fun.
The 5 Circles Teaching System—the secret sauce of overcoming fear since 1983 known as Miracle Swimming—has never failed for over 6000 adults.
Comfort is top priority at all times. Comfort in deep water means, “I can swim.” Overcoming fear does not entail strokes, which are absent from the book.
Author and Miracle Swimming founder Melon Dash’s work has appeared in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, NBC’s Today Show, CNN’s Headline News, Psychology Today, Real Simple, Elle, San Francisco Chronicle, Tampa Bay Times, Sarasota Herald Tribune, and dozens more.
If you’ve read the 1st edition, Dash says of the 2nd edition, “I’ve added new information that I now have words for. Many points have been clarified. I answered readers’ questions, and changed the “How Fear Heals” section with a powerful story. The full original “How Fear Heals” is now in the appendix. The invention of the Float Bar and Tether was also added for learning to float sooner in both shallow and deep water. ”
