The Art of Flow State and Staying in the Zone

Source" Rupert Spira YT Channel

Staying in the zone and being in the flow state is what every athlete, artist and performer strives for. Join Rupert and Jonny Wilkinson, former professional rugby player, in a riveting conversation that ranges from the deepest meaning of ‘being in the zone’ to a definition of ‘a life well lived’. They shed light on how the understanding of our true, essential nature is as relevant to athletes’ issues as it is for all of us.

‘Being in the zone’, a phrase often used in various sorts of creative pursuits, describes a state of being in which there is total flow and peak performance. When a person experiences this state in sports or any other performance, they interact seemingly as one with reality as their attachment to thought and identity disappears.

Staying in the zone is what separates a good performance from a great one, and is often hard to be replicated.
