Hey slackers, I'm writing a term paper for my Oriental Philosophy class on Zen Buddhism and the art of slacklining. I've been doing alot of research (I.E. slacklining), but not so much writing. Does anyone who knows what they're talking about know of any resources, information, or sources on the topic that they could point me to? I'd be much obliged.

Have you tried Scott Balcom's book? His philosophies on balance and the parallels b/w slacklining and life are a lot like those of buddhism.

There are also a couple guys that do yoga slacklining stuff. You can google them and see if any of their stuff helps.

Good luck
