ACTION FOLLOWS THOUGHT: BIG MIND, VOICE DIALOG, AND THE OPTIMAL ATHLETE with David Meggyesy

Self-talk is a big part of athletic performance, training, and competition. Often the self-talk we use is not conscious.  Research has shown that the “voices” and language we use can influence our state of mind.  Clearly, our state of mind impacts performance.

In this experiential workshop, we will identify our “voices” and try out some different ones, realizing we can consciously use voices that work best for us in training and competition.

SELF-TALK and SELF-HYPNOSIS: BEING PRESENT IN TRAINING AND COMPETITION - with David Meggyesy and Catt Tripoli

Being fully present is key in athletic training and performance.  Elite athletes know action follows thought and have developed various approaches to achieve full awareness and focus.  Self-talk, the ‘voices’ we use and self-hypnosis are powerful tools that allow us to drop into full awareness and focus.

In this experiential workshop, we will introduce the understanding that using self-talk and self-hypnosis is a conscious choice.  We will then offer various voices and self-hypnosis practices that can be easily used. The quality of Mind we put into our Selves is critical to how well we train and perform.
