Flow — that peak performance state where action and awareness merge, time stops, and the impossible becomes not only possible, but delightful — has fueled some of the greatest accomplishments in human history. From Albert Einstein divining the secrets of quantum mechanics while floating on Lake Geneva, to big-wave surfer Laird Hamilton dropping into the deadly Millennium Wave in Tahiti, human beings have performed at their best when consciously thinking about it the least.
Up to now, these fleeting moments of grace have struck without warning and vanished as quickly as they came, leaving their recipients confounded and with no way to reliably repeat the experience. Now, the Flow Genome Project, founded by Steven Kottler and James Wheal, is setting out to reverse-engineer the genome of Flow and make it available to everyone by 2020. During this workshop they will share all their newest research. You will be taught what Flow is, how to experience it, and what to do with it once you have: unlocking creativity, harnessing inspiration, mobilizing community, and just maybe, finding the way into a future we’re all finally ready for.
