Our Training Guides
TRAINING TO MASTER MINDFULNESS, WELLNESS & PERFORMANCE
Our Zen Zone Digital training guides blend sport-related, science-based mental training with traditional meditative practices. These techniques respectfully draw on the tradition and culture of the mind-body disciplines, without trying to imitate or otherwise reproduce them. The training materials function at once as meditation-mindfulness methods and also as foundation mental skills linked to effective sport performance.
These training materials draw heavily on Dr’ Heil’s experience with Olympic, professional and developmental athletes as well as, training and research in meditation and mindfulness. They also reflect his broad base of experience within performance psychology which includes tactical training with Police, as well as consulting in Sports Medicine and with performing artists.
Zen Zone Digital training materials fill a unique niche. The visual enhancement of the otherwise traditional eye-closed approach to mindfulness and meditation offers a traditional application that is not provided by voice/sound only methods.
