Flow and Silence

In this beautiful article in the leading international magazine Kiteworld, I reflect on flow & silence and on the art of getting completely and wonderfully lost in kitesurfing…

Mihaly Csikszentmihaly is a theorist and professor of psychology who has contributed pioneering work to our understanding of happiness, creativity, human fulfilment and the notion of ‘flow’ – a state of heightened focus and immersion in activities, such as art, physical activity and work.

Sport is just one area that people refer to when talking about flow, but regardless of titles, fame or fortune, spending your life doing the things you enjoy and simply getting good at them will also allow you to enter a ‘flow state’. Life’s meaning takes on a greater significance when you are constantly engaged in something that you are passionate about and I could not imagine a life devoid of these feelings and the moments that I experience them.

Here’s the German version in for the German natives amongst you :). And if neither German not English is your mother tongue, no worries, here’s the the Italian, and the Spanish version!
