Minnesota is a state blessed with abundant outdoor spaces. Pristine lakes, rocky shores, towering pines, dancing prairies, there is a never-ending, always-changing kaleidoscope of nature that beckons us to explore.   But not everyone feels welcome.   Historically, outdoor recreation has been a white, wealthy, able-bodied and male-dominated realm. Here in Minnesota, about 20 percent of Minnesotans identify as people of color. But according to a Department of Natural Resources study, people of color make up only five percent of state park visitors.   What can be done to encourage all Minnesotans to enjoy our rich landscape? Is there a way to make communities of color feel safe and welcome in traditionally white outdoor spaces? What kind of innovative programs are already addressing this disparity?   Outside in MN Duluth groups push to make outdoor sports more diverse Angela Davis Minnesota looks to address disparities in outdoor recreation APM Research Lab How Minnesotans feel about local parks and other outdoor recreation areas On August 31, at a special In Focus, live at the Minnesota State Fair, MPR News host Twila Dang tackled these questions and more with two outdoor equity experts.

This week on MC Fireside Chats, we are joined by RV industry and Outdoor Recreation experts, such as Susan Carpenter of RV Women's Alliance, Curtis Hemmeler, the executive director of the RV Technical Institute (RVTI), who discussed the RV service technician shortage, and full-time RVer Jason Gossett of The Unhustle Bustle who talked about his family's RVing journey. Gossett, with 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry, shared how his family started full-time RVing after transforming a bus into their home. Since then, they have been exploring the great outdoors, looking for unique experiences. Gossett highlighted how the outdoors made a significant impact on their family, especially with their younger kids who are currently homeschooled and learning from hands-on experience of exploring and going on adventures. Hemmeler, the executive director of the RV Technical Institute, shared the journey of RVTI and how four years ago, the RV industry came together to address the issue of the RV industry's shortfall of trained RV technicians. The shortage of RV repair technicians and the long repair event cycle time has led them to form an institution honing individuals to become RV repair technicians to address the shortage. Hemmeler emphasized that with close to 11 million RV owners, RV repair was in a critical stage. That is why for the past three and a half years, the institute has been creating curriculum and providing standardized RV technician training all over the country. With over 30 learning partners across the country, RVTI provides education and training with large dealer groups, correctional facilities, high schools, and community colleges. Carpenter of RV Women's Alliance also reiterated the role of women in the RV industry and shared that they will soon announce an initiative for women interested in becoming RV technicians.

One of the bright spots of the COVID-19 pandemic is that more Pennsylvanians went outdoors for recreation. There's no reason to believe they'll stop either. At a time when many were home from work and didn't want to be stuck indoors, adults and children visited state parks, hiked on trails, camped, swam or explored. And they spent money according to the U.S. Department of Commerce -- almost $12 billion on outdoor recreational activities. State government took notice and hired the state's first Director of Outdoor Recreation Nathan Reigner, who was on Tuesday's Smart Talk to discuss his new role and the outdoors in Pennsylvania.  Support WITF: https://www.witf.org/support/give-now/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Professor Joe Conto: JoeConto is a Professor at Paul Smith's College in the Northern Adirondacks of New York State. He has nearly 40 years of experience in the hospitality industry in all facets, from food & beverage and events to high-end lodging and country club management. After visiting the Frankenstein Wax Museum in Lake George, New York, he proclaimed that he wanted to live in a tourist town for the rest of his life. His hospitality industry career has allowed him to fulfill that dream with stops in Las Vegas, Martha's Vineyard, Old Montreal, Jupiter Island, and now, Lake Placid. For the last 15 years, he has shared his knowledge of the industry with students and connected them with the broad range of career choices available to those interested in the world of hospitality and tourism through experiences both in and out of the classroom. Outside of his academic life, Professor Conto also teaches and performs improv comedy at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts and Montreal Improv Theatre. Professor Eric Holmlund: Ph.D. in Environmental Studies, Director of Graduate Studies, Instructor of Sustainable Nature Based Tourism Dr. Eric Holmlund is a member of the Graduate Faculty and Department of Environment and Society at Paul Smith's College. He holds a Ph.D. in Environmental Studies from Antioch University New England, an M.S. in Teaching from SUNY Potsdam, an M.S. Ed. in Outdoor Recreation from Southern Illinois University, and a B.A. in English from Dartmouth College. From 2000 to 2019, Eric founded and directed the Adirondack Watershed Institute Stewardship Program, which is New York State's largest aquatic invasive species spread prevention and education program dedicated to protecting the natural heritage of Adirondack rivers, ponds, and lakes. Since 2014, Eric has co-directed a collaboration between Paul Smith's College and the Tosco-Emiliano Biosphere Reserve in northern Italy, focused on sustainable tourism and community identity. He has served as a wilderness recreation leadership instructor for Outward Bound and the Wilderness Education Association. He is a steering committee member of the Paul Smith's College Global Center for Rural Communities and the Champlain Adirondack Biosphere Network (UNESCO Man and Biosphere Program). Associate Professor Kelly Cerialo: Dr. Kelly L. Cerialo is an Associate Professor and Program Coordinator in the Business and Hospitality Department at Paul Smith's College and Program Coordinator for the new Master's in Sustainable Tourism. She is the Co-chair of the UNESCO Champlain-Adirondack Biosphere Reserve (New York/Vermont), a steering committee member for the U.S. UNESCO Biosphere Network, and founder/focal point for the U.S. Biosphere Reserve Youth Network. She coordinates international student exchanges with a focus on sustainable tourism and community development in UNESCO Biosphere Reserves in Italy, Canada, South Africa, and the U.S. She is the co-founder of the Adirondack to Appeninno Sustainable Parks and Communities Project – an international sustainable tourism initiative between the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano Biosphere Reserve in Italy and the Champlain-Adirondack Biosphere Reserve.

Research interests include the social impacts of tourism and sustainable tourism in UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. On this episode of Destination on the Left, I talk with three college professors — Professor Joe Conto, Professor Eric Holmlund, and Associate Professor Kelly Cerialo. This week's discussion focuses on sustainable tourism and how it links into the new Master's program that Paul Smith's College offers. My guests share the inspiration behind launching the new program and their vision for how it will support the long-term professional education of those in the travel and tourism space. What You Will Learn in this Episode: Why everyone is so excited about the new Master's program in Sustainable Tourism Management Why sustainability is a thread that's woven through many of the courses at Paul Smith's College Who the program is for, including mid-career professionals and people newly out of their undergraduate education who want to gain an environmental credential When you can apply to the new Master's program The importance of balancing out the social, economic, and environmental impacts of tourism How the current Paul Smith's College students are receiving the idea of this new program What sparked the idea and gave the team their inspiration for the new program Studying Sustainable Tourism Management What's unique about the model that Paul Smith's College has built for their brand new Sustainable Tourism Management Master's is that it is a low residency model which enables people from various backgrounds and industries to join. Professor Kelly describes the types of students that they are expecting to enroll in the new degree, from mid-career professionals interested in learning more about sustainability who may or may not currently work in the tourism sector, to entrepreneurs working in a tourist destination who are interested to learn more about sustainability, to recent graduates in the travel and tourism sector. Sustainability is a Headline Theme Sustainability is something that the current students at Paul Smith's College have in mind all the time. Professor Kelly shares more about why the upcoming generation of travel and tourism professionals is drawn to sustainability as a headline theme. Professor Paul shares his discussions with former students who are out in the workforce about their interest in returning to further study, focusing on sustainability because it is an area they see as the future but also personally important to them. One of the most significant shifts he has seen over the last 10-12 years is the genuine belief that sustainability is a necessity in every industry. Inspiration for the New Program Professor Eric discusses why Paul Smith College is launching the Sustainable Tourism Management Master's and why they feel that now is the right moment to include the new program in the offering. All three guests share their pleasure that sustainability really is a leading issue in the consciousness, psyche, and future strategy of students graduating in the last ten years. They highlight that sustainability is more than a buzzword; it's a strategy for both surviving and flourishing into the future.

The Office serves as the trustee for a network of underwater parks encompassing more than 620,000 square miles of marine and Great Lakes waters from Washington state to the Florida Keys and Lake Huron to American Samoa.Aha Moment[Abridged]  I've talked about how important community engagement is.  I think we're ready for the next level of like, how do we work more closely with communities together and collaboratively? The conversations are there, but how do we get there? How can they be ambassadors for us and vice versa? How can we come to a mutually beneficial, like this sanctuary is sacred to some degree? I don't wanna put those words in it, but it's a special place. Again, responsible recreation, responsible uses, sustainable tourism, but how can we do this collectively together so that where we're benefiting the community, and then the community is also helping us with our mission, or our collective mission. It's not even our mission; It's our collective.   I think that's the aha like, okay, this is, this is the focus for me for the next couple of years. It's not just getting the word out about national sanctuaries in like places like Illinois or Indiana, where there is no ocean, but it's also really like, okay, let's focus more on the communities and the conversations in the communities that we're not going in and saying, you must do this., it's like, how can we do this together? Insight2Go[Abridged]  A friend of mine shared with me, and it really resonates with me because I'm really… I feel like, especially as a federal employee being authentic and present is, is just so important, especially.

Rebel Buddhist
Existential Anxiety and Crisis

Rebel Buddhist

In 1991, my life seemed perfect. I had just started at UCSC, my first choice for schools, not just because of the amazing reputation of the rebel professors, but also because of the ancient redwood forests and proximity to the beach - nature was important to me, and this place had it ALL. I had a blast doing new things like skinny dipping, drum circles, and mushroom journeys with friends, majoring in clinical psychology (which I couldn't get enough of), loving my classes… I had a great boyfriend and I was working at the Outdoor Recreation program as an assistant rock climbing guide as part of my work-study program. I felt super blessed. People told me all the time how lucky I was. So then why was I having panic attacks? I was afraid to leave my room. I was scared to drive through the mountain roads to visit my boyfriend. I was afraid to make friends. I was unsettled and restless. And I felt like something was very, verywrong.  On the outside it seemed perfect, and I couldn't figure out what was going on. And that made me scared. I thought I was having mini-strokes. I was partying too much to escape. I thoguht I was going to have a psychotic break like my father. One day, desperate for an answer, I was wandering around a bookstore with a particularly large collection of spiritual books. The spine of one book caught my eye: Spiritual Emergency: When Personal Transformation Becomes a Crisis, by the Czech psychiatrists Stanislav and Christina Gorf. I read the book sleeve and the first few pages and realized: Holy shit. I think I'm having a spiritual emergency. Looking back, I realize it was more of a spiritual awakening that was going to turn into a spiritual emergency if I didn't get support. But those first few pages helped me realize that I wasn't going crazy. It was a spiritual experience. It was that period of intense suffering and fear that led me to seek out meditation - I felt a strong calling to learn how to meditate. A lot of the places I reached out to charged too much, so I kept searching until I found a rebellious Tibetan Buddhist nun from Australia named Robina Courtin. She was my kind of nun, teaching me to meditate and talking shout sex, cigarettes and chocolate;)  It was in my sessions with her that my love affair with meditation, Buddhism, rebel nuns, and Tibetan culture began. I started to emerge from my existential crisis (although it would take years before the anxiety took more of a back seat). I see others in existential crisis often, especially in people interested in the Adventure Mastermind. For some, it might look like wanting to discover their Soul Purpose, or help clarify the meaning of their life, or how to deliver and manifest their purpose to the world. Missing this can really be a cause of deep pain, and a source of deep longing in humans. Maybe you can relate to this - maybe you've had an experience that has completely changed you, but you also notice that you don't feel so great about it. You might even feel burdened. A spiritual emergency occurs when a spiritual awakening process goes too fast - too much too soon. This leads to a person feeling really destabilized and can even be frightening. We start to open to our spirituality in the awakening and then it overwhelms us, Things are at a higher risk of transforming from spiritual awakening to emergency when there's also a shock that triggers the experience, like death of a loved one or a life-threatening illness. It can also happen when there's a lack of support or skilled intervention. An existential crisis is different - it can be a result of a spiritual awakening or emergency - even lead to an emergency if unsupported. The most common thing I see with clients in an existential crisis is a loss of meaning, or at least an acute awareness of the lack of meaning. The way I see it, a spiritual awakening is the beginning of the path, and the existential crisis is a specific part of the path that's challenging. Here are just a few of the signs that we might be in an existential crisis (check out the full Episode for more):You might be searching for purpose and meaning. It's a deep longing, not just “ wouldn't it be nice if I knew…”There may be a sense of loneliness, isolation, depression, emptiness, and disconnection from others.Like me, you may feel like you're about to lose your mind or that something has gone very very wrong.You feel like you're walking in a dream and you're not sure who you are anymore. Or you look at your achievements and start to wonder if you've wasted your time. (spoiler alert: you probably didn't!)You begin to feel a sense of anxiety about death… especially about dying with regrets or dying without having reached our full potential. Why do we experience an existential crisis? Sometimes it comes from a shock to the system, or a more chronic exposure to stressors, or a “dark night of the soul.” It can also be from a life transition/new stage of life, questioning our religious beliefs, psychedelic experiences, the birth of a baby, and more. So, these triggering events can be negative and positive. They also seem to be more common right now. And when we look at the symptoms of an existential crisis - questioning society's values and definitions of success, feeling separated from others, questioning our life purpose - it can make intuitive sense that we see a crisis more often in a world that encourages us to compare ourselves to others, to seek out external sources of validation, to find our worth and lovability in others. Here's the good news: it's really common for rebel one to experience existential anxiety. You don't just follow the herd. You question. You think for yourself. And that can feel lonely and confusing. While some people may see existential anxiety as the result of depression, we can also choose to look at it as part of our evolution. The breakdown before the breakthrough. It's a chance for us to inquire with true depth and honesty and authenticity our Soul Purpose, our meaning in life. It's a chance for us to deepen our spiritual practice, get our priorities straight, and figure out what really matters. And it can't be avoided. If we try to avoid change and impermanence, we're fighting with reality and create so much unnecessary suffering. This discomfort and suffering is part of our path.  So… what the heck should we do if we feel we're in an existential crisis? First, make sure it is what it is. Knowing the correct diagnosis is really important, because putting someone one meds who doesn't actually need them is not helpful. And conversely, it's dangerous to assume that severe symptoms are an existential crisis if, in fact, serious depression or psychosis or other illness could be going on. // Get out of your analytic brain and into creativity. You're not going to be able to think your way through this one. It could be by writing poetry or a song, through art, or journaling. // Explore your dreams. We can receive many messages about our purpose and our life's meaning in dreams. // Have a mindfulness practice. When we are fully present, we are less likely to get hooked by fear or worry or regret. // Spend more time in the wilderness, in nature.  // Chill the frick out and stop doing so much. Seriously. We are often a human doing instead of human being. This is not the way we evolved to be. // Do a guided experience, retreat or wilderness fast that specializes in this. Obviously, this is my jam and the whole reason I created the Adventure Mastermind. It's important to remember that as all things are impermanent, so is an existential crisis, even though it can feel like forever. If you're in an existential crisis, I hope that, like me, you can look back on it when you are through it and see that it was an essential part of your journey and that you'd do it all over again because what grew out of it was so incredible and valuable. In this Episode, you will learn: // My personal story of becoming a rebel Buddhist// The difference between an existential crisis and a spiritual awakening// Signs you might be in an existential crisis// Why we experience existential crises// Why existential anxiety is so common today// How we can help ourselves when in an existential crisis Resources:// Robina Courtin and the Liberation Prison Project// Episode 55: Self-Compassion// Episode 71: How to Find Your Purpose// Episode 99: Rebel Purpose// Episode 105: Soul vs Spirit// If you want to start integrating all of you into this one precious life we have, apply for the Adventure Mastermind.
