Mindy Body Course at Surge

juliet2

 

We are going to be starting a mind/body course at Surge!

I have put together this questionnaire to get you started thinking a little deeper about you; your goals, your work, your family, your Self and your life. Please take some time to fill it out – even if you don’t go any further in the mind/body course this questionnaire can give you valuable information about where you are and where you want to go. As Carl Jung said,

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”

When you get done filling it out – send it back to me. I will give you feedback on all of your answers to help you and I get more clarity about your personal situation and then I will put together a workshop or seminar to help the most people at one time. I can still work with you one-on-one if you prefer as well.

What my intention is behind this is to hopefully help you, not just when you are at Crossfit (since we all know the mind can REALLY mess with us during our workouts), but also be able to help you take what you learn from me into your life to make it better, more productive and more fulfilling. To use exercise and physical activity to go deeply into your being and pull out your greatest capacity, your greatest strength, your greatest self!

Mind training is truly one of the most important things you can do in your life. To the ancient Greeks, exercise was a tool used to harness an even greater potential than the physical skills derived directly from it. Exercise was designed to take the integrated mind, body and spirit established at rest into dynamic physical activity, and then into daily life.

Looking forward to the journey!
