Path: Sports, Money and Profit Spirituality of Sports


Our existence is more than just a biochemical reaction in our brain, it is the wholelistic yet subtle interaction between spiritual, mental/emotional and the physical aspects of ourselves.

The Spirituality of Sports

If you knowingly or unknowingly feel drawn to the natural beauty of the outdoors, or if the spiritual aspects of Sports matter to you; If you seek that special harmony of body-mind synchronization or enjoy playing games just for the fun of it, then you have connected with the spiritual aspect of sports.

The spirituallity of sports takes us beyond just winning, it goes within ourselves to the "inner game", the area of that special connection of spirit, mind and body, the concernes of mindfulness.

History teaches us that Sports evolved from a fight for survival. Today it is an art of the expansion of consciousness and discovery for the unlimited potential within ourselves.

In the present fragmented society, many have lost touch with their deepest need to grow emotionally and spiritually. We need to restore the traditional "rites of passage" from youth to adulthood but in a new way, different from the ancient days. This is the task of "Spiritual Warriors".
