Heart Carving – A Retrospective v1.0
As I look back on the infographics above from my essay Heart Carving – skiing for precision, power and freedom (10 Jan 2012) I realize how much of those insights and observations became background thought (as opposed to foreground observations) as the shape of my ski changed from 2012 onward – and my skill level increased.
However, the focusing on the heart (and eventually the breath) is (and was) the key to elevating the experience of skiing.
The video below refers to the skiing done that was pertinent to the infographics at top. I did begin the Heartcarving journey in 2002 in New Zealand (Mt Ruapehu) and then Snowbird in 2003! But the full paradigm mentioned above only started to form while rollerblading prior to 2006.
