I know for most of us extreme sports are seen as way out there …. so what can we learn from such activities that might be of interest to non-participants. Well the list is endless. My latest paper in this area shows that extreme sports participants can help us understand our relationship to fear and how we can transform this relationship to tap into somethig that we all have. Being able to see fear as information rather than a barrier allows us to transcend the everyday and move into the realm of the special/ extraordinary.
Take a look at the documentary if you want to get a glimpse of a little more:
But of course to tap into the leassons available we have to reframe extreme sports from a risk-taking focus to something more positive …. for another time.
