The mindful approach to ocean rowing: Roz Savage


Roz Savage speaks of the trials and tribulations of solo-ocean rowing - of being all alone on a great wide sea. She talks about taking a mindful approach to rowing, and to life, that can help overcome our daily setbacks. Rosalind 'Roz' Savage is an English ocean rower, environmental advocate, writer and speaker. She holds four Guiness World Records for ocean rowing, including first woman to row solo across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

There is no better way to acquire advanced expertise on self-mastery, resilience, and stress management than to spend up to 5 months alone at sea on a 23-foot rowboat, thousands of miles from land and humanity, at the mercy of winds, waves and currents. Since 2005 Roz has become the world's foremost female ocean rower, having rowed - solo - across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. An Oxford-trained lawyer, Roz spent the first 11 years of her career working as a management consultant, braving nothing more intrepid than rush hour on the London Underground, before an environmental epiphany led to a radical personal transformation into a world class adventurer.
