Develop personal agency while building technical outdoor skills

The outdoors teach us about relationships, risk, and fortitude—but how can we translate the empowerment we find there into our daily lives? And how can we go into the outdoors as self-assured adventure partners?

For Guiding Operations and Outdoor Educators

Equanimity Outdoors pairs with outdoor education to empower participants in the outdoors. Personal agency-building coursework emphasizes community, ownership, accountability, and action to overcome dominant narratives. 

This creates a means for individuals to begin to develop agency in the outdoors and beyond.

The idea: training and technical skills do not serve recreationists if they don’t have the personal agency to believe in their capacity to influence their own thoughts and behavior, or have faith in their ability to handle a wide range of tasks or situations.

Equanimity Outdoors changes all that. Connect to partner on a future course.
