Seven Mountains : The Inner Climb to Committment and Caring
Marilyn Mason, a licensed psycologist and university faculty member, was far from being an outdoors woman when she participated in her first rock climbing trip on Minnesota's North Shore of Lake Superior. But beyond the exhilarating physical challenge, she soon discovered key elements of climbing that are essential in the psychological processes we all face every day. Becoming deeply involved in her newly discovered sport, she went on to climb majestic peaks in Tibet, Nepal, Tanzania, the Caucasus, and China. Each mountain's special demands taught a new lesson with exciting implications.Seven Mountains is her dynamic and unique approach to personal growth expressed through the metaphor of mountain climbing. Beginning each chapter with a diary excerpt dramatizing her climbs. Mason discusses her findings in the context of human relationships - in work, love, family, friendships, and community.
