Strength To Awaken
Make Strength Training Your Spiritual Practice and Find New Power and Purpose in Your Life
This book is about the level of qualitative engagement you can bring to your strength training and ultimately the engagement you are capable of bringing to your life as a whole. Many strength training methodologies myopically focus upon the muscular system. Most fail to identify a clear methodology for managing the type and quality of attention and engagement required to optimize your greater potential. These shortcomings stunt your performance.
Strength to Awaken takes you into the new paradigm based upon training the integral nature of the human being. Readers gain a never before seen approach that restructures thinking, attention and identity in strength training to develop new possibilities. This one-of-a-kind manual connects your pursuit of Excellence with the timeless spiritual quest for awakening. Will you discover how to leverage this rare intersection of spiritual practice and strength training and access your highest levels of potential?

You may start with narrow goals around strength training (as you rightly should) but let this book skillfully take you beyond your initial, and natural, egoic drive to achieve into a profound expansion of your everyday awareness and being in the world.
For me, finding Rob's work has been an exciting ride - and I'm only just beginning to unpack the depths of what's presented in this book.
Unlike anything I've read before, this book elicits stimulating inquiry, "ah has!", and offers some of the most beautifully crafted text I've ever taken in. I could see this becoming the hottest "book club" book of 2012.
Hands down my new favorite read-highlighted the heck out of it and continually coming back to my favorite lines/passages.
