Marcello (an author and physics professor at Dartmouth College) and Kari (with a Ph.D focussed on trauma and PTSD,)decided to build an obstacle course in their backyard. What’s the connection? Marcelo, the physicist, sees OCR and physics as a way to go beyond the known boundaries. Kari, the psychologist, sees it as a way to get out of our heads and connect with the physical, a vital way to get past anxiety. Both agree it’s a great way for their family to develop life skills that translate into our personal and professional lives and transcend the inevitable resistance we face each day.

Lessons:
    1.    Get in touch with your physical side to become a whole person.

    2.    Introduce mystery, possibility and the unknown into your world in order to transcend your boundaries.

    3.    The important thing is not to meet your goal but keep trying to meet your goal.

Son of pioneering Hawaiian surfer “Buffalo” and a living legend in his own right, Brian Keaulana had two mentors. The first was his father who taught him to share the ocean’s bounty. The second was the ocean itself which served as a playground, school and church. Before he and his siblings could walk their father would toss them into the surf. Keaulana, who calls himself a “Waterman,” uses this wisdom as a stunt coordinator on projects like Hawaii-Five-O, teaching ocean risk management and mentoring at risk kids.

Lessons:

    1.    The ocean, through its unpredictability, teaches you to be in a state of constant readiness.

    2.    Transcend fear is through knowledge.

    3.    He shares the brilliant acronym S.S.A.F.E. - protection from any danger.
