I like mountain sports and I like to mitigate the inherent risks associated with recreation in the big mountains. A couple of years ago I did an avalanche education course with Colorado Mountain School. I first heard about Colorado Mountain School and their avalanche education from our next guest, Mike Lewis. Mike gave a great presentation backcountry travel safety which I attended.
Mike is an ordained Zen Buddhist Priest, Spiritual Advisor/Spiritual Counselor and a mountain guide.
I like Mike’s take on the Flow state where it shows up where concentration is involved. Also, in future episodes we hope to explore more the connection between the Flow state and meditation.
In part two of this interview, Mike talks about the anti-flow state, chaos and anxiety, and how Flow can be used to deal with that.
