The Zone, or Flow as it’s known in the academic space is an optimal state of consciousness in which you feel your best and you perform your best.
It refers to those moments of rapt attention and total absorption, where everything else melts away and your focus is totally in the now. Time dilates - slowing down or speeding up, your sense of Self vanishes, action and awareness merge and you become one with whatever you’re doing.
In Flow, performance skyrockets to otherwise unreachable heights.
Flow Fundamentals takes you through essential habits, experiments and triggers designed to produce more Flow in your life. It is experimental and experiential. Each week, we introduce the science-based triggers of Flow––and then you apply it in your own life and report back to the class.
We share our own N=1 data sets, swap feedback and improve together.
If you just want to kick back and listen to some neat ideas, occasionally be inspired, and not change, then this is not the course for you.
This course will give you significant insights if you do the work.
No one else can do your pushups for you.

Content is delivered daily from our group start date, and we kick off the next run September 9th! You'll see a long video every week, along with a video and exercise every day.
The course runs 6 weeks, and you'll have access to an online group of other community members going through it right alongside you.
We recommend blocking off roughly one hour per day, five days a week, for this program.
Before the course starts we send over preparation videos and materials so you can get excited and ready to go!
"This has been one of the most educational classes I've ever been in, including college. I wish they had something like this in college. I think it should be mandatory. The amount I learned about myself, the brain hijacks that I have let cripple my life at times, just simply everything was phenomenal." – Ben Herrick
"I did many crazy and out-of-the-norm things in my life and so far these six weeks have been a truly the most sustained and prolonged proactive vital civilian learning experience program that I ever experienced." – Claudi Valls i Lillo
"Thank you for designing this course. To be honest, it is perhaps the only endeavor I've concluded successfully in maybe a decade, aside of college. It is beautifully structured. The results are very powerful, even if in retrospect the techniques seem easy, but it would have been difficult to put two and two together on my own." - Renato Vargas
"There is no better journey than discovering one's Authentic Self and then living in the Flow of the adventures and brilliance that abides there.
There really are no words to describe the benefits I have received from this course, and with the tools you have provided it never has to end. It truly is the course that keeps on giving. Such a huge contribution to us...and ultimately...to the world. Thank you!" - Debra Lucas
