Feel the Rock

Feel the Rock

As a group of climbing friends puts it, when attempting a rock climb under the threat of inclement weather, you must “feel the rock” to determine whether to proceed. If the rock is dry, you climb!


Feel the Rock is a story of living in the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, being immersed in the culture, climbing the high peaks of the Andes, and surviving deep loneliness and frustration on the path to personal and spiritual growth. It is a tale of being utterly uncomfortable physically, mentally, spiritually, psychologically, and financially. It is a revelation of what can happen when one is pushed to the breaking point. And it is an inspiration to take the risk of touching your inner heart/soul/consciousness—your rock—to live a fuller life.

After all, can you make big, important life decisions without knowing who you truly are? Without feeling the rock first?
