Overview

Marilyn Mason, a licensed psychologist and university faculty member, was far from being an outdoors woman when she participated in her first rock climbing trip on the north shore of MinnesotaÆs Lake Superior. But beyond the exhilarating physical challenge, she soon discovered key elements of climbing that were essential in the challenges we all face every day. Mason went on to climb majestic peaks in Tibet, Nepal, Tanzania, the Caucasus, and China. Beginning each chapter with a diary excerpt dramatizing her climbs, she discusses her findings in the context of human relationships--in work, love, family, friendships, and community. In Seven Mountains the decisions to risk, to face our fears, to trust, to ask for support, to overcome our "stuckness," and to let go become starting points for an inspirational examination of what matters most to us.

  • Seven Mountains was praised by authors Robert Bly, Richard Leider, and polar explorer Ann Bancroft.
  • Seven Mountains is a unique approach to personal growth expressed through the metaphor of mountain climbing.
