When I'm not sitting in front of my computer or on my Zafu.
I'm outside in nature and one of favorite things to do is climb. This documentary about world class climber, and self professed Buddhist, Chris Sharma, is an excellent insight into the climbers mind. Shot in Hampi, India.
This groundbreaking climbing movie combines world-class action with a rare and inspiring view into the mind of this extraordinary climber. Along with friends Katie Brown and Nate Gold, Sharma has come to explore the infinite possibilities of this place among ancient Hindu temples
Chris Sharma is known for his spiritual nature and climbing philosophy as expounded in a journal commissioned by Climbing Magazine in 2003. He often uses visualization and meditation techniques before attempting especially difficult routes or boulder problems, and becomes very personally invested in projects, sometimes attempting them for weeks or months before attaining the ascent (see Realization and Es Pontas).
