Transcendental Meditation for Success
An athlete conditioned with SFS training can raise their game and the level of challenge they are capable of dealing with without stress. There are numerous training techniques that SFS promotes, but none is more fundamental, more foundational than the central training technique: Transcendental Meditation(TM).
TM is a very powerful mental technique based upon the inherent tendencies of the mind coupled with very subtle training; training that appear to the unexperienced on the surface as not doing; the very opposite of sporting activity. TM affects the mind and body in a very interesting way; a way that is comprehensively complementary to the field of action.
Stress Free Sport Training
Rather than training hard, SFS starts with the athlete going in the opposite direction: sitting still, closing the eyes and transcending the here and now. The mental technique employed by TM allows the mind to go to the place where thoughts come from. The process is very natural due to the innate tendency of the mind to go to levels of its self that are more charming, interesting and satisfying. This is the nature of the mind.
Deeper levels of the mind are where thoughts originate. Once in motion from the subtle, quiet level of the mind thoughts move through and are buffeted about by the stresses associated with/within the grosser aspects of our physiologies. Like an arrow that is miss-aimed, when we have a lot of stress, then the manifest results of our thoughts will be less sophisticated and less successful (off-target).
If we are rested and stress-free or at least less stressed, then our thoughts and associated actions will be more effective.
