Description: From the Appalachians to the Himalayas, people look up to the heights for inspiration, renewal, life-giving water, healing, and various other blessings. Drawing on personal experiences, extensive research, and his work with National Parks and World Heritage Sites, Bernbaum takes us on a fascinating journey exploring the key role of mountains in the mythologies, religions, literature, history, and art of cultures around the world. Illustrated with spectacular photography, his lecture also delves into the spiritual dimensions of mountaineering and highlights implications for climate change and environmental conservation. The presentation includes the dramatic account of an avalanche Bernbaum was caught in on Annapurna, one of the highest and most sacred peaks in the Himalayas.
