mPEAK: Mindful Performance Enhancement, Awareness & Knowledge is an intensive course in mindfulness training for those who seek to draw upon this proven practice to achieve their goals, both personal and professional, as well as attain new levels of performance and success at work, in sports or life. This cutting-edge 8-week training program is built around the latest brain research related to peak performance, resilience, focus, and “flow”.

The mPEAK program enhances the human capacity of mindfulness through established and empirically supported practices and exercises, tailored to fit the needs and desires of the team, organization or individual. As with physical training, this mental-emotional training program is based upon the understanding that optimal outcomes occur most often when participants continue to engage in the practices and exercises on a daily basis as a part of their training regimen. Mindfulness is effective precisely because it is a way of being and relating to all aspects of life, rather than a specific technique or tool for a particular goal. The foundation of this program is drawn from the highly respected and empirically-supported Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. Additionally, the program incorporates specific practices and exercises formulated to correspond to recent neuroscientific findings, competitive advances, and related research regarding optimal performance.

The mPEAK program was developed in conjunction with the US National BMX Cycling Team in 2014, as a collaboration between the coaches of the team, UC San Diego neuroscientists Drs. Lori Haase and Martin Paulus, and the UCSD Center for Mindfulness leaders Executive Director Dr. Steven Hickman and Managing Director Allan Goldstein.

正念靜觀為本提昇表現 mPEAK

靜觀能令你更好發揮你潛能,保持最佳表現狀態

你有否試過:

比賽前困擾於緊張情緒,杞人憂天的想法當中,導致未能專注發揮過往多次練習時的演出水準?
對挫敗及過失感到自責,不斷打擊自己信心,害怕再次嘗試,甚至因而放棄?
為了突破自己或團隊的極限,反而加劇消耗了自己身心以及損害同伴關係及士氣?

無論你是學生、從事於體育運動、藝術表演、營銷人員,或者管理專業人員,在充滿競爭的環境當中,不期然要抓緊著各種目標希望達成,但內心卻常因各種原因拖著後腿。靜觀的覺察力能讓我們更好地投入現狀,專注於每時每刻眼前的活動及工作,更敏銳地感知外界環境對身心的影響,為自己提供緩衝平台以助回復至最佳水平及「心流」狀態。

mPEAK課程起源自美國加州大學聖地牙哥分校靜觀中心與美國奧運BMX單車隊於2014年的合作研究計畫,以8週系統性的訓練課程融合靜觀練習、腦神經科學研究、心理學、自我疼惜的內容,幫助參加者重新探索內在的力量,減少因慣性思緒模式及情緒干擾工作表現及訂立更整全的目標。

mPEAK 8週內容概覽(每節2小時):

1. 靜觀入門 – 認識靜觀與表現的關係
2. 身體感知與回復力
3. 內心的表現故事
4. 為心流狀態作準備
5. 如何面對痛楚及困境
6. 內心的兇惡教練與同情心教練
7. 對長處覺察
8. 於生活注入動機及意圖

透過有系統的靜觀修習及訓練,以助參加者鍛練復原力(Resilience) 及自我疼惜 (Self-Compassion),以更容易於各種個人專業範疇如管理領導工作、體育、演藝、創作活動等中達致頂峰表現(Peak Performance).

源於美國加洲大學聖地牙哥分校靜觀中心與美國奧運BMX單車隊合作的實證研究計畫,課程以圍繞四個學習主軸:

  1. 對身體有更敏銳的覺察 – 為靜觀打好基礎,學會以好奇心接納身體反應
  2. 認知並擺脫自身設置的阻礙 – 清𥇦體會分心、自我負面評價及不由自主反應對表現的影響
  3. 與逆境時刻共處及迎接困難挑戰 – 學習以靜觀態度面對痛楚、恐懼、失敗等
  4. 認識完美主義及對目標執著的利弊 – 探索個人強項特質並以自我疼惜的態度發揮所長

融合有關頂峰表現、復原力、集中力及心流狀態的大腦神經科學研究成果及以實證為本的靜觀訓練,集中針對表現範疇的需要, 循序漸進讓參加者建立自我覺察能力,有效地維持身體及心智情緒狀態,於關鍵時刻發揮出最佳水平。
