Navigating Change

In this episode, one of the best rock climbers of all-time, Sasha Digiulian, sits down to talk with Cory and I about her life, her career, and Adventure with Purpose. Sasha shares how she strives to find harmony and has rolled with the punches during her career - and at this challenging time.

At 27 years old she has already had a decade-plus long career in climbing and adventure. The conversation covers her storied career and what she’s up to now while quarantined and recovering from major surgery. She dives into what it’s like to try and balance an athletic career with life, education, relationships, travel, and how she has learned to both confront and shut out the noise of social media.  She describes the power of commitment, discovering “just being” and struggling with the question of “does everything happen for a reason,” while she has been dealing with post-surgery recovery, the death of a friend, and quarantine. Sasha drops some real pearls in this conversation. It’s a great one for all of those who are looking for a dive into the concept of Adventure with Purpose and tools for confronting the unavoidable challenges life has in store. -CJ
