Below is a fascinating video of people who are pursuing the ‘custom made ski’ movement in a truly novel way.  Michael Lish and Kristin Broumas pursue their craft in a custom, rolling workshop, giving lessons along the way on how to make skis to high school kids, and even the occasional wedding party.  If you subscribe to the lessons of this blog — that building an empathetic relationship with yourself, through performance and mastery, jump-starts empathetic relationships with others, then you’ll like the idea.  If you then believe that shared experience in contemplative environments gives you the space to reflect on your own development, then Community Skis could be one of the best showcases of empathetic ladders I’ve found.
