Sports, Energy & Consciousness
Athletes have long known that their pursuit of excellence can lead to the unforgettable altered state of consciousness known as “The Zone”. This unification of body, mind and spirit can paradoxically lead to peak performance as well as inner peace. Coaches and sports psychologists now include techniques from esoteric realms of energy medicine and consciousness research in order to awaken these highest human potentials.
The contributing authors of this book – an ex-NFL star, a Harvard psychiatrist, the coach of an Olympic champion, an extreme skiing world titleist – will explain how these insights can help you develop your inner and outer skills, whether you’re a weekend amateur or an elite athlete.
The approaches range from Energy Psychology and Zen to the Parallel Mode Process and mindfulness. Specific applications to baseball, track, sculling, skiing, tennis and more are included, as are invited commentaries from some of the world’s leading experts in physical and spiritual transformation.
