Sunday, June 25

11:15am PDT


Are you seeking a results-oriented approach toward realizing your fullest capacities as an athlete and human being? Do you want to discover the power of focused attention on the positive changes you want in your inner and outer game?    

In this workshop, you will assess and address specific changes to make a difference in your athletic ability.  This integral approach enlists your whole being - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – to produce clear statements of positive intent aimed at improving your performance and effectiveness in the world.

This interactive and experiential session will give you the tools to use the power of visualization and awareness techniques, the wisdom of the body, and the encouragement of fellow athletes to enhance your performance. ITP has been the subject of a research study conducted by the Institute of Noetic Sciences indicating statistically favorable results on the significance of ITP affirmations for helping transform lives.

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.
