Encounters with Transcendence in Adventure Programmes.
McGowan, Michael L.
Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Leadership, v7 n4 p25-28 Win 1991
Problem solving in adventure programs contains physical, social, philosophical, and transcendent (insightful) elements. Through transcendent experiences students reach a high level of performance, tolerance, and understanding. Instructors often attempt to facilitate transcendent experiences through such activities as the Native American sweat-lodge ceremony. Group processing of transcendent experiences is influenced by instructors' and students' levels of comfort and beliefs. (KS)
