The Transform Fear™ Project was created by Shaan Saar LLC as a social impact movement to support, empower and elevate the voices of survivors of violent crime and marginalized communities. We are committed to helping survivors reclaim their autonomy, find their personal strengths and create actionable plans for thriving.
We provide survivors in all stages of healing in-person and online, trauma informed self defense™ education, Survivor's Masterclass Experiences for resilience and empowerment and immediate need response for safety planning, security and more.
As a survivor of violent crime herself, Reneé Rose, creator and co-founder of The Transform Fear Project and Shaan Saar LLC has taught thousands of women from all walks of life how to not only keep themselves safer but find strength
At the age of 17, Reneé survived a kidnapping at gunpoint. The experience cultivated in her a desire to spend a lifetime learning more about personal protection, self-sufficiency and emotional well being. The desire to learn, share and help others gave rise to a global movement for ending gender and identity violence.
As the daughter of a heavily decorated US Naval Officer and Federal Law Enforcement, Reneé was exposed early on to a culture of safety and self sufficiency. She credits the self preservation skills she learned at an early age to her survival.
These very skills, in addition to Evidence Based Self-Defense™, Conflict Management, Violence Prevention and Resilience Training are taught in the Master Class Series, University Preparedness and Women's Only Courses and Lectures across the country.
