Surfing for Empowerment
How can surfing empower, enlighten, and inspire us to take action?
Group workshops take place one to two times a month, depending on attendance.
Please contact Jason for more details and to get inspired!
In these classes you will have the opportunity to:
- Be more intimately connected with yourself and others attending through the unique experience of the group and take that experience, knowledge, and tools with you for application into other areas of your life.
- Face your biggest challenge or fear (even if its not surfing) and transcend it while maintaining compassion for yourself in the process.
- Realize that the true power of deep transformation is within yourself and take this realization and the tools learned with you to enable yourself to evolve so others can feel inspired to do the same in your presence!
Jason’s Surfing for Empowerment Philosophy
There are WAVES of opportunity for adventure, happiness, success, love and a whole spectrum of possible enriching experiences that swirl constantly around us. The way of the surfer provides a great metaphor for embracing your unique life waves with passion, purpose, commitment, detachment, flow and fun! There is an unexplainable sensation of boundless connection and presence surfers feel when riding a wave. We who ride waves do so for much more than fun. We do it to experience a “oneness” and spiritual connection to something much larger than ourselves!
Surfing is also a beautiful form of expression. It’s like we use the wave as our canvas and the board as our pen. This is our art. Surfing is a true inner art form. Each wave is different and each one a different painting.
How can surfing inspire, empower, and enlighten us?
Waves have existed since the oceans were created, before there was air that was even breathable by humans. For a deeper understanding of the surfing experience I quote Bill Hamilton.
“Surfing equates to living in the very moment of ‘now’. When you ride a wave you leave behind all things important and unimportant, the purity of the moment is upon you.” People who have never experienced the feeling can only compare it to other things they have done or seen; they are invariably mistaken in thinking that they understand what it feels like to be so intimately connected with a wave. Which is why you may have heard that ” Only a surfer knows the feeling.”
In this state of mind/body/spirit connection we experience a higher reality…perfect health and well being! I believe this is actually our natural state but at times we can get in our own way. Just as the Ocean and Waves are constantly moving and changing so too with our minds and bodies. So, we don’t have to believe the stagnant thoughts, stories, and beliefs that don’t serve us and keep us stuck! By examining our current beliefs about ourselves and creating fresh new perceptions we can live a more vibrant rewarding life!
There are waves breaking everywhere all the time. How you choose to find and ride them is up to you!
Surfing is a journey my friends and I hope you choose to embrace it like I have!
