what is the FLOW state?
Athletes refer to it as 'getting in the zone'. It's the runner's high, the effortless writing, the best conversation you've had in your life, the way things just seem to magically come together.
In Japanese Buddhism, it's called Satori.
It's a space where there is an absence of critical thinking, internal evaluation, or focus.
Flow is the word to describe that wonderful moment when all parts of you—mind, body, emotions, energy, and Spirit—come together and move you internally and externally in an effortless and joyful manner.
Flow is the most characteristic and unique feature of Tai Chi, and it's a central concept in the TaijiFit Method.
