Working Out, Working Within: The Tao of Inner Fitness Through Sports and Exercise Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Zen meets The Zone in this guide to combining physical fitness with spiritual awakening. During physical training, we can experience something deeper than just the burn of working out. We can achieve spiritual awareness and feel what it's like to be alive and healthy. Working Out, Working Within offers readers techniques and suggestions to avoid fixating on winning the game, scoring the goal, or building the perfect body. Our workouts become tools for personal transcendence as we get to know ourselves, test our limits, gather inner strength, and build physical vitality. We can learn how to find harmony between body, mind, and spirit using breath watching, a simple Tao technique to encourage calming and an awareness of our bodies, and to discover our "Tao minds"; visual recording, through which we imagine our bodies in motion, employing all of the senses in our visualization; affirmation reciting, a way to confirm our thoughts by repeating them aloud; and valuable ancient Tao wisdom and strategies to synchronize body and soul. Chungliang Al Huang is the founder and president of the Living Tao Foundation and director of the Lan Ting Institute in China.

Review:

"Sports psychologist Lynch has worked extensively with Olympic and world-class athletes; Huang authored Thinking Body, Dancing Mind (Bantam, 1994). This latest book is aimed at athletes at every level, from the recreational beginner to the seasoned competitor. Applying the principles of Taoism to physical training, the authors emphasize that the greatest reward of sport is the inner process itself and that external results such as winning or gaining recognition are mere by-products that come from having met the spiritual challenge. By watching the breath, carefully visualizing outcomes, repeating affirmations, and vigilantly applying insights learned through these techniques, physical training becomes a spiritual journey of joy and discovery." Library Journal, 03/01/1998
