Dent @ Home The Explorer’s Mindset – A Cave Diver’s Guide to Fear and Challenge
May 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
As a cave diving explorer, Jill Heinerth’s work takes her to the most remote corners of the planet. Frequently out of touch for weeks or even months at a time, her job is to capture images in the claustrophobic blackness of water-filled caves, where an error on the job may determine her chance of survival. To excel in this work, Jill has had to learn how to master fear like no other. The lessons she has learned about risk assessment from over 30 years of expeditions offer an edge of your seat thrill, woven together with important messages about how to apply an explorer’s mindset to achieve success.
Jill Heinerth is the author of INTO THE PLANET – My Life as a Cave Diver and serves as Explorer in Residence for the Royal Canadian Geographical Society. A fellow of the International Scuba Divers Hall of Fame, she was recently selected as the recipient of the William Beebe Award for ocean exploration.
