The Psychology of Inner Sports Development

Wednesday, April 9th at 11:30 a.m.

 

Levine Campus, Room 1320

 

It is not by a focus on improving individual parts that the greatest sports development hinges, but by a focus on the whole Self (or Being).  In our modern quest for success, we tend to forget this this inner and ancient mystery of Self. We look elsewhere for our answers. We expect to find them round about us, in our techniques and our technologies. We are mistaken. The real answers lie within. Sports development occurs from the inside –out, from the inner dimensions of self to the outer dimensions of play and performance. Drawing a page from the sacred; all power and progress already exists within you.
