Flow is where we feel and perform at our best.
This exercise is designed to create a flow state on demand to create.
In flow, concentration becomes so laser-focused that everything else falls away. Action and awareness merge. Our sense of self and our sense of self consciousness completely disappear. Time dilates—meaning it slows down (like the freeze frame of a car crash) or speeds up (and five hours pass by in five minutes). And throughout, all aspects of performance are incredibly heightened—and that includes creative performance.
We are combining peak performance disciplines to create an intense period of creation.
