Awaken Your Inner Golfer is a golf book that builds on the premise that once you establish an effective golf grip and an effective golf stance and posture you can then access and effectively use your body/mind’s instinctive kinesthetic intelligence. The book includes simple explanations and illustrations to establish these necessary foundations of grip and posture. The kinesthetic intelligence of the body/mind that exists within each golfer is awakened through exploration of a variety of instinct-awakening golf exercises (not golf drills) with variations in grip, stance, swing, use of subtle senses, and imagination. They will help stimulate your innate adaptability and instincts.
The golf book is designed to fit in your pocket so when you go to the golf range or practice area you can fold it open to refer to any of the foundational illustrations, including golf grip, posture, and golf stance, and explore any of the 40 instinct-awakening golf exercises. There will also be follow-up Awaken Your Inner Golfer Exercises books with an extensive collection of unique instinct-awakening golf exercises so you can continue to awaken and build your kinesthetic instincts.
Each golf exercise in Awaken Your Inner Golfer includes space to evaluate the results of the exercise, and what you feel and sense in your body exploring the golf exercise. This awareness is how you awaken instinct and awaken your inner golfer. It could be a gradual process or it could be an instant awakening, only you will know from your experiences with them. May you find joy in the fun and play and delight in the exploration and discovery……and satisfaction from learning how to play golf from your instincts!
Core Concepts of Keep It Simple Golf and
Awaken Your Inner Golfer
A focus on learning through your own inner experience rather than golf instruction – leading to a permanence inherently found through the joy of self-discovery.
A focus on awakening instinctive kinesthetic intelligence through exploration of a variety of instinct-awakening golf exercises (not golf drills) – to help you learn what you already know!
Discovering the physical movements that work for the individual golfer’s unique physiology.
A focus on experience, trial and error, exploration and discovery – the true way human beings learn physical motor skills – where there are no mistakes, only learning.
A focus on establishing effective foundations of grip and posture to enable the golfer to access instinctive kinesthetic intelligence; to enable the golfer to use their hands, wrists, and arms to hinge and rotate naturally as they are anatomically designed in order to make a proper golf swing; and to enable the golfer to leverage and swing the weight of the golf clubhead as it is designed.
Learning and reinforcing the “feel of pure impact” through the golf exercises, and then trusting the body/mind to perform the golf swing mechanics to reproduce that feel.
Learning about the effectiveness of quieting the conscious thinking mind and engaging subconscious body/mind instincts to perform the motor skill of a golf swing.
Discovering the bodily freedom inherent in trusting instinctive body/mind function in performing a golf swing – accessing “the zone” and “finding your flow” (allowing the mind to rest and the body to perform).
A “letting go” of learned limitations, paralysis from analysis, and conditioned attempts at trying to control the movements of a golf swing with the conscious mind.
A holistic approach balancing and “syncing up” the body and the mind, the conscious mind and the subconscious mind, the left brain and the right brain, the mind’s intention and the body’s performance.
A process of allowing rather than trying; learning the physical skill of an effective golf swing through play and fun, trial and error, exploration and discovery – the same natural process a child uses to learn the physical skill of walking (or any other physical motor skill).
Golf as a mirror of life – prospering by taking joy in the process of learning rather than striving and struggling for results.
A process of cultivating present moment awareness in exploring the golf exercises flowing into conscious awareness in daily living.
A journey of self-discovery tapping into the powers of mindfulness and meditative practice – holistic processes that are coming to the forefront in the evolving consciousness of this 21st century.
