Everest Without Sight

BY KEVIN AUGELLO
@ VOL 12 ON JUL 01, 2015

"Basically everything in our expedition was blessed (by Tibetan Monks), our ropes, our ice axes ... and it would turn out later that we would need this blessing."

In Everest Without Sight from PechaKucha Night Leiden Vol. 12, Kevin Augello, founder of New Earth Films, a British rooted documentary production company, whose clients include the BBC, National Geographic and Discovery Channel, aims to share the diversity and natural history of Planet Earth. In this moving presentation he shares about his emotional journey while filming the extraordinary attempt of Dr Thomas Weber, a visually impaired climber with a mission to reach the summit of the North Face of Mount Everest in Tibet. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, January 25th, 2016.

A Sherpa for Your Birth

BY BARBARA STEPPE
@ VOL 18 ON FEB 11, 2016

In this presentation, Barbara Steppe explores the world's oldest profession! Not that one...the other oldest profession - helping women to birth their babies. And that is a doula: a woman who provides emotional and physical support to a mother in her childbearing year. FreeSpirit Birth is the name of her doula practice and her intention is to awaken her community - one with a less than desirable set of birth statistics - to a very simple, tried & true way to improve birth outcomes and emotional satisfaction.
