130: Kari & Marcelo Gleiser | Theoretical Physics, Psychology & Obstacle Racing

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.
