Here are links to some of the great people and things we mention in the book... and some we don’t.  Enjoy!

The Adventure Rabbi

Rabbi Jamie Korngold was our very first interview for our “Conversations with an Adventurer” in the book.  Who knew there was a “spiritual ski guide” out there?  Well she is and if you are Jewish (“practicing” or not) you will love what you find at her website and discovering the adventures you could have in Colorado!   And Jewish or not, you will also enjoy her book, God in the Wilderness.  Check it out!


Ski to Live Clinics

Another Conversation with an Adventurer was with Kristen Ulmer, extreme skier turned spiritual ski guide.  She teams up with a Zen Master to offer clinics unlike any other you’ll experience.  Check out her site to find out more about her events in Utah and read some really great excerpts of her writing.

Blogger Tim Konrad keeps us up-to-date on everything ski & board on!  Read about Tim in Chapter 1 of the book.


Rick Phipps was kind enough to read our manuscript and write a blurb for the cover.  Thanks, Rick!  He is quoted and mentioned several times in Marcia’s chapter on the “Zone” and you’ll really enjoy checking out the story of his spiritual adventures in Skiing Zen:  Searching for the Spirituality of Sport.

Tina Basich has been called the “Godmother of Snowboarding.”  We loved her amazing attitude and gratitude about what her sport did in her life and for others.  Besides co-founding Boarding for Breast Cancer (check out our charities page), she wrote a book, Pretty Good for a Girl:  The Autobiography of a Snowboarding Pioneer.

Evan Strong is one of our “Conversations” in the book... and what a conversation!  As a champion athlete (against other adaptive athletes as well non-adaptive) he is an inspiration to imagine the best and go out and do the best.
