Book: Conquer Your Fear of Water 
A Revolutionary Way to Learn to Swim
Without Ever Feeling Afraid

These are the steps of overcoming fear. Humane, reliable, gentle, fun. 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 radically different way to learn to swim as an adult, including a blockbuster explanation of how to heal fear without effort; why you must 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.
