Book Description

Golf for Enlightenment is the fable of Adam Seaver, an ordinary person, with a terrible game. Adam meets a mysterious young teaching pro named Wendy who, in seven crisp, short yet profound lessons, teaches him things that seem baffling at first:


- You and the ball are one


- Find the now, and you will find the shot


- Let the game play you



From the moment they begin to put these lessons into practice, what was previously a humiliation turns into a transforming experience, not just for Adam's score but for his whole life.



Long a famous writer on spiritual subjects, hailed as the poet-philosopher of mind-body medicine, Deepak Chopra found himself fascinated by the game of golf. He could not escape its parallels to life: 'Golf is like lightning caught in a bottle. It can turn triumph into disaster in a split second.' Faced with the wild ups and downs of his own game, Chopra crystallised a teaching based on mindfulness, the ability to remain calm and focused, relaxed and powerful at the same time. Mindfulness can improve any golf game, from the beginner's to the tour professional's. And it can improve anybody's life, no matter what game they play - or none.

4.0 out of 5 stars The game of golf mirrors your life 27 April 2004
By ja
Format:Paperback
This book is a great read. It is thougth provoking and interesting. Youmust be open to the realisation that in order to play golf well and enjoythe game, then you must let go of tension and the need to win. Soundstrange? Well this book makes you think in different ways. There are 7lessons, told from the perspective of an average golfer who meets a greatteacher, Leela. She teaches him about golf,letting go and reconnectingwith his true self. Between the lessons, Deepak Chopra writes about hisexperiences and insights. If you liked The Inner Game series by T.Gallwey,you will know where this book is coming from. Made great sense to me andin future, I am going to let the game play me!

This book distills the essential wisdom of Vedanta in a very simple style that most people can relate to. The transformation that I can feel in my consciousness is definitely because of the lessons contained in this book. Very simple yet powerful !
