On this episode of the Far Out with Faust podcast, we’re delving into the necessity of exposing and resolving dysfunctional programming caused by childhood trauma to achieve peak performance, stress relief, and happiness. Dr. Don Wood, creator of the Inspired Performance Method, is a psychologist who applies the principles of neuroscience to transform destructive thought patterns and optimize performance on a cellular level.
Dr. Wood was inspired to continue his education to discover whether he could facilitate the recovery of his wife and daughter from autoimmune disorders. He’s written two books: You Must Be Out of Your Mind, and Emotional Concussions.
He tells Faust that before any progress can be made, we need to understand that a person’s “atmospheric conditions” are responsible for making us who we are. Hint: it’s got nothing to do with the weather outside.
Learn how to determine what state you’re in (it’s not a geography lesson), and how this colors your worldview in ways you may not even be conscious of. We’re getting into the undeniable relationship between our emotions and mental and physical well being, and how the “code” our brains write can be hazardous to our health. Stay tuned to hear Dr. Wood’s hypothesis on how this ties into your genetics — it will change the way you look at sickness and chronic disease.
Find out about glitches — and how they’re preventing you from reaching your potential.
In several revealing moments, Faust goes “far back,” recounting how he’s been able to overcome much of the painful programming from his childhood.
Wood’s methods have led him to become a respected authority in the world of elite sports training. Hear his inspiring accounts of working with professional athletes — including Kenyan marathon runner Marco Cheseto, a world record holding double amputee, Spartan champion and special forces green beret Rob Killian, and golf’s long drive champion Tim Burke.
Learn exactly what it means (scientifically speaking) to be “in the zone,” and how Wood coaches these athletes to perform at levels their competitors can’t touch.
It wouldn’t be Far Out if we didn’t bring it all back to the infinite wisdom of the universe, and the perfect beauty of nature, in the end.
