Zen meets The Zone in this guide to combining physical fitness with spiritual awakening. During physical training, we can experience something deeper than just the burn of working out. We can achieve spiritual awareness and know that we are alive and healthy. Working Out, Working Within offers readers techniques and suggestions to avoid fixating on winning the game, scoring the goal, or building the perfect body. Instead our workouts can become tools for personal transcendence as we get to know ourselves, test our limits, gather personal strength, and build physical potency. Here's a book that will nourish and exercise the spirit while showing readers what "ultimate" sports and living really are. Index.

About the Author

Jerry Lynch, Ph.D., counseling psychologist and international speaker, is also a corporate consultant and author of several books, including Living Beyond Limits and, with Chungliang Al Huang, Thinking Body, Dancing Mind.


Sports psychologist Lynch has worked extensively with Olympic and world-class athletes; Huang authored Thinking Body, Dancing Mind (Bantam, 1994). This latest book is aimed at athletes at every level, from the recreational beginner to the seasoned competitor. Applying the principles of Taoism to physical training, the authors emphasize that the greatest reward of sport is the inner process itself and that external results such as winning or gaining recognition are mere by-products that come from having met the spiritual challenge. By watching the breath, carefully visualizing outcomes, repeating affirmations, and vigilantly applying insights learned through these techniques, physical training becomes a spiritual journey of joy and discovery.
