What is Flow?

You’ve almost certainly experienced flow in your life, but you might not know it by this name. Flow is one of the most rich and meaningful experiences in life, involving complete immersion in what we are doing. When in flow, we are fully involved, interested, and present in what we are doing. Flow can be hard to cultivate, but the benefits are substantial. Being in a state of flow improves our performance, and enhances enjoyment in what we do.

Everyone is capable of improving their mind-set and awareness. Our programs are designed to help you on this path towards more optimal living, whatever your performance environment, or personal wellbeing goals.

The absorption in the task at hand that occurs in flow facilitates optimal performance. Everyone is capable of improving their mind-set and awareness, and our programs are designed to help you on this path towards more optimal living, whatever your performance environment or personal wellbeing goals. Some of the programs on offer include individual consulting and courses for groups and organisations interested in greater wellbeing and productivity of their teams and staff.

Interested in learning more about the optimal experience of Flow?

Here’s a link to a free webinar I recently took part in with Cameron Norsworthy and Matt Whitfield from The Flow Centre:If you didn't make the free live webinar yesterday, here is a video and/or audio recording for you. Enjoy.

What others had to say:

"Really looking forward to connecting deeper with everyone over the next few months. Thanks Cam, Sue & Matt, really informative and thought provoking!"

"If you really want to live a life, you'd better at once begin to try, if not, it doesn't matter, but you'd better start to die." - Czsik

"I am glad I made it to todays webinar. I found it really informative and enjoyable and it convinced me to sign up for Masterminds which I have just done and I am looking forward to starting to engage with the Flow centre on a more regular basis."

Cameron, Sue and TFC Crew

"When I first learnt that there was not only a name, but also a psychological model that described the best moments I’d had in life, I found my true north. Knowing that there is a state called Flow, and that we can all do something about whether or not we will experience it in our life’s endeavours, has provided purpose, motivation, and enjoyment to what I do.

It is my passion to help others know the power of flow." - Susan Jackson
