Can participating in sports, athletics, or even recreational play accelerate the evolution of human consciousness on the planet? Can the world of sports teach us transformational practices that translate the wisdom of sport’s “Ideal Performance State” into practical training methods that include energetics, awakened states of consciousness, and the unification of body, mind, and spirit? A collective of doctors, psychologists, scientists, world-class athletes, and leading-edge coaches think so and are ready to show the world how. Join Barry Robbins, co-founder of Sports, Energy and Consciousness for a fascinating exploration into the topic.
