Resiliency Field Trip: Heber Trap Shoot!

October 13, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Em Capito Resiliency Field Trip Trap Skeet Shoot

Back by popular demand! This was our very first Resiliency Field Trip way back in 2016, and in honor of TEDx, it’s time to head up the mountain once again to bust some clay!


Not into guns? A bit anxious about shooting?

Don’t worry, that’s perfect. This is all about stepping outside of our comfort zones to build resilience, with an immediate transfer to every other area of our lives.

Yep, a therapist is encouraging you to shoot a gun therapeutically. Just like we’ve done in trying crazy yoga poses on paddleboards and eating tasty bugs. It’s an adventure away from our typical routines to turn down the volume on fear.

What to Expect: 

10:00 am – Meet at the Big Hollow Gun Range / Introductions & Intentions

10:15 am – Instructors will assist us in safely busting some clay with shotguns

12:00 pm-ish – We will transition to Tarahumara in Midway for lunch (12 min drive)

12:30 pm – Mindful exercise to soak up resilience while we wait for our orders

2:00 pm – Wrap-up and head out!

Shooting Note: You may bring your own shotgun and ear protection – just let me know so I can plan accordingly.

Lunch Note: Lunch is on your own – there’s a lot of affordable options at Tarahumara, you can check out their menu here.

Transportation: Carpooling is a great idea, so bring a friend! Plan ahead: it takes an hour or more to get to the range from most places in the valley.

What is a Resiliency Field Trip? 

Resiliency Field Trips are experiential activities that build resilience. There are three rules: It’s new, it’s slightly scary, and it’s intentional.

Who should come? 

Anyone age 14 and up! Minors will need a parent/legal guardian present. The range isn’t terribly handicap accessible, so please get in touch with any special accommodations needed at least 7 days ahead of time so that they can either be arranged or your ticket refunded.

Important Fine Print: You are responsible for your own safety and the safety of your children. Drinks will be available at Tarahumara – please always drink responsibly and never drink and drive. Tickets are nonrefundable, but can be transferred to others.
