Lars Larssen went from being an obsessive snowboard kid to becoming a guide for Ousland Explorers. He has led ski tours on Svalbard and Greenland and is still a snowboarding kid at heart.
Lars found himself extremely frustrated and unease inside, due to conflicts at his job. That’s when he discovered meditation. The same way he previously had explored the mountains, a new type of exploration came into Lars’ life. Today, meditation is a recurring tool in everything Lars does, and it helps him being in control of himself and the situations around him. A sense of self-control that is equally beneficial in stressful daily life challenges as well as tough expedition conditions. By studying the art of breathing combined with exposure to extreme cold, Lars has learned to master the proficiency of ‘himself’. Possibly the greatest craft of all.
