Golf for Enlightenment: The Seven Lessons for the Game of Life

Deepak Chopra has discovered the delights, and frustrations, of golf, and he is passionate about the game. Confronted by the wild ups and downs of his own play, he consulted with golf professionals and developed a new approach to the game that any golfer, from the novice to the expert, can follow. The results can be measured not only in increased enjoyment and skill, but also in greater wisdom about life beyond the 18th hole.

Publisher's Summary

Deepak Chopra has discovered the delights, and frustrations, of golf, and he is passionate about the game. Confronted by the wild ups and downs of his own play, he consulted with golf professionals and developed a new approach to the game that any golfer, from the novice to the expert, can follow. The results can be measured not only in increased enjoyment and skill, but also in greater wisdom about life beyond the 18th hole.

Chopra's own game has improved dramatically since incorporating the elements of his program. Instead of focusing on the mechanics of a "perfect" swing, Chopra reveals how golf can be mastered through mindfulness, a form of awareness that combines sharp focus and relaxation at the same time. Expanded awareness, he tells us, can accomplish much more than external mechanics to improve one's game.

But Golf for Enlightenment is also an engrossing story about Adam, an Everyman who is playing a terrible round of golf when he meets a mysterious young teaching pro named Leela. In seven short but profound lessons detailing spiritual strategies, she teaches Adam the essence of a game that has much to explain about life itself.

Chopra has taken the unique message in Golf for Enlightenment nationwide, teaching the essential tenets of his program at lectures and seminars to golfers everywhere. His message continues to help players turn an obsession into a positive life path.

What the Critics Say

"While golf as a head game is not a new idea, it's never been taught with the deep understanding of the mind-body connection that Chopra brings to this audio...A seminal resource for anyone who loves the game or is trying to love it and for anyone wanting to love life." (AudioFile)

    "Little worried but turned out great..."

    Was a little worried what to expect but turned out great... How Deepak can take the game of golf an apply his training is a "pretty good stuff man."

    I like listening when I drive long distances and recommend most all of Deepaks work... it's enjoyable, thought provoking and never comes across as lecturing or "preaching"

    "Mastering the games of golf and life"

    Tips to master the game of life as told through an interesting story of a man searching for the perfect golf swing. Parallels between life and golf are convincingly pointed out along the way. Deepak's voice is interesting to listen to, and I found deep meaning in the lessons taught. I think it even helped my golf game!
