  3. Why expand your canopy skills? Yes, because it makes you safer, sure, but this is just the beginning. When you let your parachute take you to amazing places, your skills purchase the freedom of adventure. There is a great deal to learn before taking on the kind of challenges as you see in the following video, and the secret is finding people who really know what they are doing, and listen to them, and of course follow their advice, and their line. Even then, mountain flying has big risks, but if you are patient, once in a while, you get to live the dream: Laura and I did this a few days ago under the amazing leadership of our good friends at Skydive Oppdal in Norway. It gets really interesting at 4:00 https://youtu.be/2-ijVw9UJt8 Instructional Videos:www.AdventureWisdom.com Keynote Speaking:www.TranscendingFEAR.com Canopies and Courses:www.BIGAIRSPORTZ.com
  4. This video is removed. Too controversial and divisive. I want to bring skydivers together, not separate them into camps based on cosmology. Sorry to have created waves.

  6. That is a great question. I don't pretend to understand how this stuff works, I just remain open to possibilities. Vehemently defending why the world is flat through seeking only the evidence that supports our belief seems to me to be the road to erroneous assumptions. True science requires an open mind, ready to let go of old paradigms. Instructional Videos:www.AdventureWisdom.com Keynote Speaking:www.TranscendingFEAR.com Canopies and Courses:www.BIGAIRSPORTZ.com
  7. OK, so lets start with this. How did someone who has had no contact with any skydivers ever before in her life know the unpublicized nickname of Robert Mahaffey: "Muffy the Monkey"? How did she know that his was a master pianist? I did not tell her anything about these people. Not a word.

  8. Mind are like parachutes, they only function when open. Remember that one? I know that there are fake channels out there, and it is sad that people cannot always feel the difference. This, in my experience, is authentic, and the information she shares can only be gleaned in this way. There are facts that only I would have known. If you do not choose to believe in life after death, that is your choice, and it is perfectly fine. However, stepping on others' perspectives is unloving. Consider the possibility that the dominant paradigm is incomplete, and see how this perspective can lighten our load, and bring us to connection with loved ones and information that we could not have access to in the old model. I knew that people who believe that the world is flat would fight to maintain their belief. I can handle that. I simply am offering my testimony that Pamela, and a few others like her, really do have access to much more than we can see, and I have proof in many years of direct investigation that otherwise unknowable information is accessible to those who have this gift. Like skydiving, if it scares you too much to consider it, you need not engage the experience. It will all become clear in the end. Free your mind.

Already from a young age the combination a competitive mind, the need to be seen and risk willingness turned Espen towards individual sports. The childhood was filled with skiing, climbing and swimming all year around. He competed in alpine racing until he was 19 years old, and the whole time also climbed mountains to find untracked skiing lines. After the alpine racing career he needed to fill the vacuum and started skydiving. It was there he at the age of 21 was introduced to base jumping, a sport that changed his life. It became a playground for his desires to explore his capabilities. During the early 2000s he became part of an adventurous group called the VKB in Norway. They developed new equipment for base jumping and wingsuit flying. In 2007 they introduced proximity flying to the world through the ski movie Seven Sunny Days, and it became the start for an up growing professionalism in parts of the base jumping community. At the same time Espen went into freeride skiing and extreme skiing contests. He did well with his background from alpine racing, and the combined success in freeride skiing and base jumping made him decide to go professional in 2008. A bad injury the same spring on a ski movie shoot gave a three years set back in his plans. He came back, won the overall title in wing suit flying and people still believed he could have a value in skiing. Today he is skiing the WTQ freeride skiing tour, World Wingsuit League and travelling the world chasing adrenalin filled projects.

Let's face it: Fear is a problem for all of us. It robs us of the boldness and creativity that can make our lives meaningful.
