Working with elite athletes, Dr Michael Colgan and colleagues discovered that many of them suffer from needless negative emotions, especially anxiety, fear, anger, and depression that are detrimental to their sports performance.
Testing normal non-athletes confirmed that up to 70% of subjects suffer similar emotional stress that inhibits their lives. The WHO reports that emotional dysfunction is second only to heart disease as a source of disorder in North America.
Since 1997 Dr Colgan has joined with other researchers to use the new science of neurogenesis (growth of new neurons in the brain) and neuroplasticity (development of new connections between neurons) to improvelearning, memory, balance, problem solving, brain speed and positive emotions in athletes and non-athletes alike.
Quiet Mind: Journey of Joy details his three-stage program to eliminate negative emotions and allow free expression of the immense potential of the human brain to develop a happy and successful life
Ingeniously weaving together the wisdom of many leaders, from Buddha, Lao Tzu, and Jesus, to Gandhi, Mother Teresa, and Martin Luther King, and even Dr Seuss and Winnie the Pooh, Dr Colgan provides a sound basis for a life of constant passion and joy.
