NOTE: THIS IS A DEVIATION FROM OUR USUAL MONDAY MEMBER MEETING, THIS MEETING TAKES PLACE WEDNESDAY, MAY 23rd!!!
A professional adventurer and lifelong climber based in Northern Arizona since 1997, Titiana Shostak-Kinker teaches adventure education and yoga. She has been a massage therapist for 20 years and an aspiring astrologer even longer. Though she’s climbed and guided all over the world in places like Yosemite, Red Rocks, Thailand, Czech Republic, Switzerland, and Mexico, she returns to Arizona for the solitude and variety of rock in the secret canyons and buttes throughout the state. Titiana is interested in the connections between flow, meditation and climbing – her graduate research highlights these concepts. Tonight’s presentation will include a showing of her short rock climbing film, Free and an interactive discussion and activity based on Flow Theory.
Free is an all female rock climbing film. The seven minute short film is an entirely women’s production from the ground up, depicting climbers in stunning Northern Arizona climbing areas in a creative and unique way. Our shoots were on lesser known crags with female climbers bouldering, traditional climbing, sport climbing and free soloing. Each of these women climb at a 5.12 standard or higher. The rigging, photography, sound and production for the film were entirely completed by women. Watch the trailer for the film here: http://atypicalart.com/ontherocks/trailer/
