Flow involves what is called a “Parallel Interface.” It is the causal interface of flow. But this flow interface is causal for a curious reason that deals with another term – “nondual.” A parallel interface is a nondual interface, and nondual means “not two” or “one without a second,” and to understand flow reality, it helps to understand that flow reality is also nondual reality.Read more
’Tis the season…not that season. I am talking about the school season. That’s right, all the excitement and frenzy of seeing friends again, starting new grade levels, gaining new knowledge, finding new maturity and, of course, the thrill of getting new school supplies. The pleasure of it all is enduring to my own childhood memories of the school season.Read more

"So when we talk about playing in the zone or when we speak of the peak performance state in sports, what we are really talking about is a fundamental potential in human evolution."
Integral coaching sees performance states as whole states arising as the interplay of their parts while simultaneously acting back on those parts to stabilize and perpetuate their differential identities. That's adapted from Kant, but what it means to the evolution of coaching is that in order to examine these performance states in a way that will make them more accessible to coaches and athletes, they must be examined as whole states of being. Examining the parts does not reveal the whole; the whole transcends the parts, but is still constituted by the interrelationship of its parts, so the parts are important to examine, not individually as much as simultaneously. In other words, each part plays a role in the whole, but the parts, the interior and exterior parts, form a tetra-relationship whose combination is a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.Read more

The lyrics of a song, Carefully Taught, struck me profoundly as we were sitting through a performance of South Pacific with our eleven year old son. My primary consideration wasn’t the obvious prejudice of race which the lyrics are speaking to but it was the “you’ve got to be carefully taught” that captured my deepest reflection. My first thought was wondering what I am teaching our child that could cause him to hate and fear. It was a chilling realization to ponder. Here are the lyrics:Read more
In a world of trophies for participation, Intelligence tests to determine ability and gold stars for drawing a dog that looks like a bird, I have often wondered how all of this is affecting our children and their desire and ability to learn.
In the July 12 issue of Scientific American Mind, Carol S. Dweck, a Professor of Psychology at Stanford University, wrote a provocative article, “The Secret to Raising Smart Kids.” Under the title she writes:
Hint: Don’t tell your kids that they are (smart). More than three decades of research shows that a focus on “process”— not on intelligence or ability—is key to success in school and in lifeRead more
There is a very simple way to differentiate between conventional and integral coaching programs. It is the inclusion or exclusion of the zone experience. Does your coaching program include performing in the zone, yes or no? A simple question, but one that upsets many coaches because it suggests that their approach to coaching is missing something, which it is, and there is no way for conventional coaches to reconcile the fact that their performance programs exclude the highest order performance experience known to coaching – the experience of performance in the zone.Read more
I woke up this morning with joy in my head
The message was sending from my heart it said
I loved the great feeling as my feet hit the floor
Sauntering my little self out my bedroom door
There was no one around as my smile filled my face
So I hurried and scurried to pick up my pace
For the next thought that fluttered into way
Was get yourself down there and play, play, play
Blessed are the sleepy ones for they shall soon drop off…
I was channel surfing one day when I found myself watching an obviously brain injured young woman being attended to by three nurses. She was in a semi-comatose, twilight condition and the nurses were trying to wake her up. Propping her limp body into a sitting position, they began poking, prodding, and speaking to her sharply while she, with eyes rolling wildly in fear and confusion, angrily flailed at them trying to get them to leave her alone so she could go back to sleep. Ignoring her mute protestations, a nurse eventually forced a tooth brush into her hand, and when, with great effort, her patient finally managed to get the tooth brush somewhere in the vicinity of her mouth, one of the nurses remarked that this was a “good sign” while another branded it a “huge step forward.”Read more
