Today we welcome back onto the Brain Booster my good friend Vin Harris.
The previous shows with Vin and the discussions around mindfulness have been so well received and I believe this one will be no exception.
We get the chance to look at chaos, uncertainty and impermanence in your game and in the game of life.
We seem to be living now in such a chaotic world.
Nothing seems to be solid and reliable and the old models seem inappropriate.
Uncertain economics, worrying international conflict.
So many changes which can be really disturbing.
Our thoughts can become so unsettled.
We can end up in a ‘sea of thought’ and this type of thinking can easily follow us out onto the golf course
When our mind is so busy it becomes increasingly difficult to be PRESENT to the next shot in front of you.
What can we do about it?
How can we begin to have a different relationship to our thinking so we can NOTICE our thinking as opposed to being lost in the endless flow of images and sensations.
Vin provides us with a CALM and SAFE voice of reason to help us navigate the uncertainty.
When we make peace with the uncertainty things seem to settle down
We look again at GRATITUDE and how this idea is not just a flaky concept but an essential element of great performance
How to care without worrying
How to get out of the way of ourselves
How to basically be a better friend to ourselves both on and off the course.
A wonderful session with a man who has trained with some of the foremost Buddhist and Meditation teachers over the past 40 years or so
As always you will gain so much listening to the wise words of Vin Harris
Vin Harris was involved in writing and editing “Mindful Heroes – stories of journeys that changed lives”. The authors share their inspiring stories of how mindfulness has been applied to a variety of setting across Education, Health, Business, Sport, Creative Arts and Community work.
The book includes Vin’s chapter “Its Golf…but not as we know it: Golf as a mindfulness practice and a metaphor for life” and an introduction to the Sport section by Karl. Vin has offered to send listeners to the Brain Booster Podcast the eBook versions of these two chapters.
