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.

I hope that you gain something from it like I did.

"If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf." --Bob Hope This is an easy to read and understand instructional book to help adult players sharpen their skills. Although most golfers never improve once they reach adulthood, author Bill Kroen wants to help those golfers get past that and take their game to a new level. Readers will learn how to really learn the game (not just how to swing), they'll gain a greater sense of awareness of the total golf experience, and they will finally learn how to take their practice game to the golf course. Drawing on his background in psychology, Kroen directs his readers to envision the results they want. Then they can put what they read into practice without the confusion caused by most instructional books. Golf: How Good Do You Want to Be? offers a blueprint for resourceful practice and practical application with chapters including "The Mental Connection," "The Art of Practice," "Thinking Your Way Around the Course," and "Scoring Well."

Harry Morgan?s life ? due to his own inertia and inattention ? has bottomed out. He?s failed to live up to the start in life that his self-made father gave him, he?s ashamed of his profession, his failed marriage, and his golf game stinks.Then a strange old codger drifts into Harry?s life. Joseph is an enigma: possibly unbalanced, perhaps not even real, he may have the secret of extraordinary golf. Harry presses him for help with his game, but Joseph insists that Harry first consider a series of other ideas: a strange mix of quantum physics, Eastern philosophy, and life questions. To appease Joseph, Harry accepts a series of single-page ?thought exercises.' As he completes each, Joseph randomly shows up, offers a golf idea, and leaves Harry with another work sheet.Harry?s experience with Joseph finally culminates at an isolated Japanese Zen retreat ? The Order of the Third Eye ? that features an old-style golf course used by the monks as a Zen exercise ? a koan. Does Harry?s life heal? Does his handicap drop? Who is this strange old guy, anyway?

What is truth? That question is difficult to answer unless we know our own truths, how our minds work, and why we feel the way we do about the world we live in. With that in mind, Henry Rathbun combines personal anecdotes with hypnosis methodologies, meditation, and ancient teachings in order to encourage others to embrace a simpler way to experience life. As a former professional hypnotist, Rathbun learned much living between two worlds: the subconscious minds of others and his own reality. While providing a glimpse into his personal experiences during a time when he faced many challenges, Rathbun shares life lessons that reveal fresh insights and spiritual and revelatory concepts that point to profound truths about the human mind, reality, and a deeper meaning of life. Guided by an unseen force “Hank” leads others down a rugged path to self-enlightenment in his simple and honest way, leaning on the trained stillness in his own mind. Living with Enlightenment is an inspirational story of one man’s journey into the truth of God, the dualism of mind, and the burden of human suffering.

The Buddha’s seven years of wandering in search of enlightenment ended in frustration. So did the author’s thirty years of traversing golf courses. Neither found what they were looking for until they stopped searching outside and started looking within. The result for James Ragonnet was the kind of "second birthday” Eastern thinkers describe when "you wake up to everything happening around you.” Through delightful anecdotes and practical lessons, Ragonnet reveals the power of awareness, balance, and unity to banish the dissatisfaction and stagnation so many golfers experience. He shows how "all golf Buddhas -- Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Annika Sorenstam, Tiger Woods -- play with their outer and inner eyes wide open,” describes his twelfth-green OOGE ("out-of-golf-experience”), and offers readers simple truths that prompt flashes of understanding. These insights invite birdies, drop handicaps, and transform experience both on and off the course. Now in paperback, this edition includes two chapters of all new material.

The Scottish Enlightenment is often portrayed as elitist and Edinburgh based with no universally agreed beginning or end. Additionally, the Philosophers and scholars (the great Scottish Enlightenment figures) sometimes obscure significant contributions from other disciplines so that the achievements of a wider conception of the Scottish Enlightenment are not universally known. Sir Walter Scott also recognised that his nation 'the peculiar features of whose manners and character are daily melting and dissolving into that of her sister and ally' had an identity crisis. Both issues are addressed in this enquiry which seeks to highlight the scale and breadth of the Scottish Enlightenment whilst posing the question as to how Scottish identity can be preserved.

Mark Twain once described golf as a good walk spoiled. Most golfers have had a round (or two) where these words rang especially true. That is because golf is a game where failure is unavoidable. Every shot, every lie, is a unique event involving a multitude of intricate variables, any of which can cause a shot to go awry. But fear nothelp is here! Former profession golfer Bob Glanville shares the knowledge he has gained from more than half a century of playing and teaching golf. In Golf: The Game of Lessening Failures, he teaches golfers to eliminate their golfing failures, one swing at a time. He dispenses his wit and wisdom through sixteen chapters that touch upon nearly every aspect of the game, including the equipment, the terminology, the etiquette, and the origins of the PGA. Through it all, readers learn to improve their game physically and mentally, as well as by using a set of clubs that will help them get the most out of every swing. The course awaits.
