Default All in favor, say "Aye."

The mind set is always an important thing to "over analysers" like me. Whether it be in ballroom dancing or downhill skiing, it helps to know the mindset of those who have captured the skills to preform well. This conference might help to share the accomplished swimmers' mindsets and mindful tactics?

I say "Aye"!

Mike

Oops, sorry for misinterpreting the term conference, thanks for the clarification. I had just finished watching the webinar from MIT, so yes! I am definitely in favor of more webinars, thanks Terry.

Really, awareness isn't always about thought. It's more like a sense. Your body can feel and hear, etc, (I hope) but without awareness of sensory input, it's useless. Like when you are asleep and someone tries to wake you. The disturbance might be incorporated into a dream without conscious thought. Even then, without awareness you wouldn't even have a sub-conscious thought about it. Once you are awake, then you can actively think about it.

Terry ,
I think it's a terrific idea. There are many questions that come from reading "Talent Code" and "Talent is over rated" . For example how do we really do deep practice for swimming , increase the distance or the speed? Also things like the idea that deep practice is a struggle? How do we implement that. So it there was a forum for this discussion I think it would be invaluable. Thanks Kevin

Here's a quote from "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" (book) that seems appropriate:

"Understanding is one dimensional. It is the comprehension of the intellect. It leads to knowledge, which you have. Realisation, on the other hand, is three dimensional. It is the simultaneous comprehension of the 'whole-body'--the head, heart, and physical instincts. It comes only from clear experience."

The water is our teacher. We just need to pay attention. Later we can put words to it and sort it out.

So maybe..."The Experience of Swimming"?

Default How about a workshop that isn't on Sunday

I would come to ANY TI workshop if it was not held on Sunday.....I find there are few if any TI workshops conducted on two days of the week that doesn't include a Sunday.

Is there any demand out there for a Friday Saturday or Monday Tuesday, etc.???

I know I would be one of the first to sign up.

Point very well taken. Thank you. "Total Awareness" is a much better description of the feeling. Some of us tend to overrationalize and confuse right hemisphere holistic sensations with left hemisphere thoughts...

I can see the appeal in a less obvious title, one that has a note of playfulness or mystery. On the other hand, I'd want to draw the largest number to the discussions as I find it the most interesting of topics, and I think a completely overt title such as "The Power of Mindfulness in Swimming" would likely have that effect.

All in favor, say "Aye."
How about "Mindful Swimming"?. The power part seems somewhat obvious...
