In The Shadow Of The Mountain live with Silvia Vasquez-Lavado
An incredible conversation with a remarkable woman, Silvia Vasquez-Lavado is the first person we've spoken to on the podcast who has climbed the highest peak on every continent, the legendary Seven Summits.
And yet her mountaineering achievements are barely a patch on her life story!
We heard from Silvia on:
how mountaineering helps her remove the distractions of her life and forces her to be fully present in the moment
her absolute contempt for the term 'conquering' mountains, revered places she considers sacred
how she cultivated her compassion through practice, expanding her approach to supporting other women who have experienced abuse
We finished on a real high, stood atop Everest in tears of gratitude for the unconditional love and acceptance she found there. About as far from a conquest of the mountain as you could possibly find!
Amazing adventures and incredible people are what we do every month!
