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. Our personal workouts become tools for personal transcendence as we get to know ourselves, test our limits, gather personal strength, and build physical potency. Learn how to find harmony between body and spirit using: ?breath watching, a simple Tao technique to encourage calming and an awareness of our bodies, and to discover our "Tao minds"; ?visual recording, where we imagine our bodies in motion, employing all of the senses in our visualization; ?affirmation reciting, a way to make firm our thoughts by repeating them aloud; and ?valuable techniques to synchronize body and soul.Here's a book that will nourish and exercise the spirit while showing readers what "ultimate" sports and living really are. If we exercise our psyches while we work our bodies, we will achieve not only outer fitness but inner fitness as well.

From Our Editors

 

Exercise should be more than worrying about how many calories you’ve burned during a 30-minute session — it can be a spiritual experience. There’s nothing more intense than achieving a deep awareness of what it feels like to be alive and healthy. Working Out, Working Within: The Tao of Inner Fitness Through Sports and Exercise by Jerry Lynch and Chungliang Al Huang can teach you the techniques for getting to know your true self: by testing limits, gathering inner strength and building harmony to achieve balance between body, mind and spirit. Forget about the obsession of the perfect body image — instead, concentrate on achieving a Tao body that will keep you in good physical condition and help prevent health problems later in life.
