While the elicitors of awe have been empirically studied, the moderators and mediators of awe have yet to be explored. In this paper, we explore the effects of flow and anxiety on the experience of awe in scuba diving. Flow is a state of focused absorption in an interesting and challenging activity. Flow experiences are characterized by the possibility of control in a difficult situation, a loss of self- consciousness, and in many cases a change in the perception of the passage of time (Csikszentmihalyi, 1990). We hypothesize that flow mediates the experience of awe while diving. Anxiety is characterized by excessive worrying about the future and overly cautious behavior. Anxiety has been measured as both a trait and a state (Zsido, 2020). Anxiety, both trait and state, has been negative correlated with performance while scuba diving and may be an actuator for diving accidents (Steinberg & Doppelmayr, 2015). We hypothesize that an anxious state moderates the experience of awe while diving. In this study we propose to measure the experience of awe, and the states of flow and anxiety in scuba divers. We have designed a survey that includes items from the Awe Experience Scale (AWE-S; Yaden et al., 2019), the short measure of flow (FSS-2; Jackson et al., 2008) and the State Anxiety Inventory for Adults (STAI-S; Spielberger, 2010). This study will provide new insight into the mediators and moderators of the experience of awe while SCUBA diving.
