US Team Athlete Shannon Dawkins, who won 4th place overall and 2nd in age group at the Blackwater Duathlon long course national championship event this past May, credits Susan Sly's "The Shift" Meditation with assisting her improved performance. Ms. Dawkins is also currently training for duathlon long course World Championships in Zolfinger, Switzerland; the race distance is 10k, 150k, and 30k. She is one of the 8 women from the USA representing her age group.
Shannon Dawkins found great value in using "The Shift" Meditation in order to eliminate the negative self doubt and enjoy the moment of exercising. Here is what Ms. Dawkins had to say about The Shift:
"One of the first times I used "The Shift Mediation" was in the morning before a power test workout on the bike," says Ms. Dawkins. "After doing "The Shift", I noticed that I no longer had all the negative, self-doubting voices in my head during the workout; I was able to focus and just be in the moment enjoying the journey. Once I was done, I found out that I had increased my power output by more than 5%, which is huge! My coach told me to keep doing 'whatever' I was doing! Thanks, Susan, for this wonderful gift."
Countless studies show that meditation has numerous health and spiritual benefits. The challenge is often centering the mind without the struggle. Susan Sly created "The Shift" Meditation to assist people to overcome this struggle.
"The challenge with meditation is that, for many people, they find it quite difficult to quiet their mind and truly allow themselves to be free of distraction," says Ms. Sly. "Guided meditation, such as 'The Shift' audio mediation series, provides a beneficial practice, as it assists with surrendering to peace and opening the heart to possibilities."
