What is Deep Flow?

There are many ways to experience deep flow. All methods involve getting out from under the influence of your inhibited, self-critical, conditioned, thought-based mind. Our most positive, satisfying, impactful possibilities as people unfold when this connection is wide open.

How can I upgrade to join the workshops?

When you enter your email and join the free conference you will be directed to a page where you can upgrade to the All Access Pass. The All Access Pass gets you into the Workshops, recordings of all Presentations and Workshops and a bonus video series called Awaken & Thrive from Loch Kelly and Steven Kotler.

Will recordings of the sessions be available?

All of the Presentations and Workshops will be happening live. If you miss some or want to rewatch any you can upgrade to the All Access Pass which includes lifetime access to audio and video recordings of all 25 Presentations and Workshops.

The free Presentations start at 12pm EDT/9am PDT and end at 4pm EDT/1pm PDT on each day of the conference. The Workshops take place right after that. We are aware that these times won’t be workable for many people in Europe, Asia and Australia. We hope that the availability of recordings will allow your participation.

What is the Virtual Cafe?

We left 30 minutes between Presentations to allow for bio breaks, snacks and visits to the Virtual Cafe where the team from Authentic Revolution will facilitate uniquely connecting group experiences.

Who is Being & Doing?

Being & Doing was founded by Jeff Charno. Its mission seems to keep evolving with each event that we produce -and we hope that continues. A basic orientation of Being & Doing is that our most wise, potent, creative and compassionate capacities are here for everyone with the right inner alignment and opening. Thus the Deep Flow Conference… and more to come.

the art of impossible

Steven Kotler is a New York Times-bestselling author, an award-winning journalist and the Executive Director of the Flow Research Collective. He is one of the world’s leading experts on human performance. He’s the author of eleven books, including  The Future Is Faster Than You Think, Stealing Fire, Bold, Abundance and The Rise of Superman. His work has been nominated for two Pulitzer Prizes, been translated into over 40 languages and appeared in over 100 publications, including The New York Times Magazine, Atlantic Monthly, Time, Wired, and Forbes. He is also the cofounder of the Rancho de Chihuahua dog sanctuary.

“Since flow is a fluid action state, making better decisions isn’t enough: we also have to act on those decisions. The problem is fear, which stands between us and all actions. Yet our fears are grounded in self, time, and space. With our sense of self out of the way we are liberated from doubt and insecurity. With time gone, there is no yesterday to regret or tomorrow to worry about. And when our sense of space disappears, so do physical consequences. But when all three vanish at once, something far more incredible occurs: our fear of death—that most fundamental of all fears—can no longer exist. Simply put: if you’re infinite and atemporal, you cannot die.”

Effortless Mindfulness

Using neuroscience, psychology, and ancient wisdom traditions Loch Kelly spreads awareness of how to enter an optimal flow state, access peace of mind, and live from open-hearted awareness. He is an author, meditation teacher, psychotherapist, and founder of the Open-Hearted Awareness Institute. 

“Effortless mindfulness is a way of opening to a natural, wise, and loving awareness that is already present within us, which reveals qualities of well-being, clarity, and compassionate action. It is a way of shifting out of the chattering mind and into the source of our mind, which is already awake and aware — where we can rest, engage, and feel unconditional love.”

Loch Kelly

Awakening Teacher

Improvisation for Life

Katie Goodman is a comedian who has been seen on Showtime, TruTV, and waiting in line to get a mocha latte with extra whipped cream. Through her training and speaking she has taught over 10,000 people how to use the tools of improv comedy in their lives to handle absolutely anything and be more creative, courageous, and confident. 

“The practice of improv or any creative endeavour is just that: practice. Allowing yourself to lose your perfectionist streak and to try again and again will let you live the life you want, without fear of failure or shame. And supporting others around you will create the kind of world we want to live in.”

Katie Goodman

Unitive flow

Internationally known contemporary spiritual teacher and bestselling author, Patricia Albere has helped 200,000 people transform their lives and their consciousness over the last 40 years. In 2007, she founded the Evolutionary Collective, a global organization that provides different opportunities for people to come together inside shared unity.

“In the world of spiritual enlightenment, people who have experienced awakenings almost always experience them individually – eyes shut, in quiet solitude. In fact, the spiritual paradigm of the last three thousand years has been singularly devoted to our individual salvation or solo enlightenment. The Evolutionary Collective offers a different kind of realization, a dual realization that happens with another. That shared awakening points to a new dimension of consciousness and an extraordinary possibility for humanity’s future.”

Flow on demand

Diane Allen, known as The ‘Own Your Potential’ Speaker & Violinist, is a sought-after speaker and consultant to organizations, influential leaders and entrepreneurs, looking for that edge of performance that only a fifty-year Copper Dragon Violinist can deliver.

“Innovation is a really important thing right now. And so getting into the flow state is what gets people so deeply engaged with what they’re doing. It gets them into that innovative stage. It gets them into having purpose. It’s cultivating the humanity.”

Diane Allen

Violinist & TEDX Speaker

Beyond peak experiences

Craig Hamilton began his spiritual journey in the ashrams and monasteries of the East, but ultimately found himself at the forefront of consciousness research in the West. He is a pioneer in the emerging field of evolutionary spirituality and a leading voice in the movement for conscious evolution.  

“I’m pointing to something more. I’m speaking about the possibility of awakening to our divine nature so fully that we become a superconductor for the creative power of the cosmos, for the evolutionary impulse itself. In this miraculous discovery, our personal need to have and get for ourselves is replaced by a passion to give everything for the greatest good. In this profound alignment with the sacred, the human being becomes a living, breathing force for higher evolution.Whatever you do and wherever your path takes you, don’t settle for less than this kind of ultimate awakening.”

Integral enlightenment

Inner critic to inner freedom

Martin has been practicing meditation intensively for 30 years and has been teaching dharma and guiding people in their practice since 1999. Martin is a pioneer in offering online Dharma and meditation teachings, and today teaches online through a number of different platforms.

Martin introduces Mara, the inner critic, as the tendency to judge, measure and limit our sense of self and unpacks the mechanisms by which we get caught in self doubt and deficiency.

He explores how our psychological history shaped this aspect of our psyche, and uses the story of Buddha’s struggle with Mara as a guide to our own explorations, transforming self-doubt, fear and insecurity, through Buddhist practices, psychological inquiry and emotional healing.

“We’ve become so seduced by our creations and imaginings that we have overlooked the importance and relevance, the depth, the liberating potential of actually learning, actually evolving I would say, our consciousness beyond the capacity of abstraction to a capacity, to actually stay in the heart of experience. So that rather than being fixated on the creations of awareness, we’re able to stay enough to understand something fundamental about the fact of being aware, the fact of our human existence. And as we said, this human existence happens right here.”

Martin Aylward

Insights From The Field

Cameron Norsworthy is a coach, keynote and TEDx speaker, author and founder and CEO of The Flow Centre.

“This industrialized mindset of prioritizing our external over internal, productivity over presence, outcome over process is a problem. It negates the very self-management and self-optimization required of us to meet our optimal experience. We need to get to a state where things are flowing through us. Where we are letting it happen, rather than making things happen. So the next time you face a challenge, adopt this simple paradoxical shift: Instead of focusing on this predetermined outcome or the fear in the rhetoric around it, prioritize flow and the quality of your experience. Instead of these many fight, flight, freeze responses we can find flow.”

The Psychedelic Evolution

Paul Austin helps steward humanity 2.0, contributing to greater individual and collective well-being by normalizing responsible psychedelic use. He’s not only an entrepreneur, but he also speaks about the intersection of psychedelics, personal transformation, and professional success.

“What’s really going on at the fundamental level with microdosing is just like meditation, just like breath work just like yoga. It’s just helping us to be more present. We’re not sort of in this anxious sympathetic state, but we can actually drop back and relax into a parasympathetic state, and respond to things and be creative from that position. And then with creativity comes flow and productivity and all these other sorts of things that people will often read about with microdose. But at the fundamental level, its presence, its mindfulness.”

Leading & letting go

Tami Simon is the founder and CEO of Sounds True, a multimedia company with the mission of disseminating spiritual wisdom. Since starting out as a project with one woman and her tape recorder, we have grown into a multimedia publishing company with more than 110 employees, a library of more than 3,000 titles featuring some of the leading teachers and visionaries of our time, and an ever-expanding family of beloved customers from across the world.

“It can be challenging to grow and transform. It takes courage, receptivity to feedback, and introspection to confront our areas of unconsciousness, feel the pain of old patterns, and commit to new ways of being. This is the path of self-awareness, the path of waking up to our full potential to connect and contribute.”

Continuous discovery

The Diamond Approach offers an immense and precise body of knowledge about the nature of reality and the process of spiritual realization. Rather than positing an end goal or condition, it points to an open-ended, continuous process of discovery. Even non-dual realization is recognized as a step toward greater mysteries and forms of freedom. 

“It is a living, palpable presence, a process of bursting forth from within. This presence comes from inside, runs in our veins, and pushes things out for us to see.”

Karen Johnson

Diamond Approach

Persistet awakening

Dr. Jeffery A. Martin is a founder of the Transformative Technology space, serial entrepreneur and social scientist who researches personal transformation and the states of greatest human well-being. Jeffery’s current work involves helping people use what’s been learned to make the life-changing transformation into Fundamental Wellbeing. 

“One of the most important things that we’ve learned is that this notion of enlightenment or ”extraordinary well being” is not a binary state.  It’s not something that is simply turned on and then is the same for everyone.  There actually is a range or continuum — and where someone falls along it determines the experience that they have in relation to the world.”

Jeffery A. Martin

Sara has trained or consulted over 500 leaders from 40+ different cities in the art of emergent leadership, and contributed to the founding of at least 14 communities.

I love the community and friendships, self-empowerment, and world-improving creation that comes out of this work. I have seen thousands of people transform and discover their potential through my events. I love waking up every morning and knowing my spark of being can light others’ flames.”

Hosting the Muse

Raised in Buffalo, New York, and garnering degrees from Yale University and San Francisco Art Institute, Suiko brings her experience as a competitive synchronized swimmer, professional knitter, and co-founder of the Art Monastery Project to inform her work. Investigating the relationships among contemplative practice, studio practice, and other kinds of practice (such as swim practice), her work explores breath, repetition, and pattern.

“I am for art that awakens the maker & the viewer.  I am for art that creates chaos out of order. I am for art that systematically repeats a mistake until it becomes a world-mending stitch. I am for welcoming the divine through simple practice. I am for the beauty of things as they are. I am for art that describes inner space & points a way in.”

Happiness hacks that work

Jonathan Robinson explores ingenious ways to tap into the ever-present stillness and joy of our true nature. He is the co-founder of the illuminating podcast “Awareness Explorers,” with Brian Tom O’Conner. Jonathan is the author of 12 books, has been a frequent Oprah guest, and has interviewed spiritual leaders such as the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, Ram Dass, and Wayne Dyer.

“If you want to awaken peace and love in daily life, pure awareness is always available as the background of all experience.” 

“Awareness is the background of all of our experience. When we shift our attention from the content of awareness to pure awareness itself, it offers us instant peace and a sense of compassion and love. Yet most of us only tune into it during times of meditation.”

Jonathan Robinson

A Taste of Awakening

Monk, mystic, author, artist and spiritual teacher, Peter is a spiritual catalyst. He helps birth the awakened consciousness that lies hidden in most of us. Although it lies hidden behind the conditioned thoughts of the dream world, it is always here ready to awaken.

“Look at your own heart. Can it be separate from your lungs that supply the heart cells and all other cells with the oxygen they need? Can it be separate from your parents or grandparents? If they never met, where would your heart be now? Is the food you eat separate from your heart? Is whether you exercise or not separate from the condition of your heart right now? Are your thoughts, beliefs and emotions separate from your heart? If you are able to see your heart clearly, you will realize that nothing in all existence has ever been separate from your heart.”

Dialogic Flow

One World in Dialogue was created in 2015 by Elizabeth Debold with her partner Thomas Steininger. Elizabeth is a developmental psychologist, gender futurist, and pioneer of emergent dialogue.  Thomas is a philosopher, host of Radio evolve, and creator of emergent dialogue and co-conscious We processes. The idea behind OWiD is simple: to develop a living global network of change-makers and activists committed to deep dialogue in order to create new approaches and collaborations that support change.

“We are no longer living in a world where individual genius can solve the problems that we face–even when we individually achieve peak performance. The new threshold is the space between us, the mysterious power of co-conscious dialogue. When the space between us shimmers with aliveness, a new momentum arises that draws individual genius into collective scenius. Then we can experience a dynamic flow that comes from a co-creative intelligence emerging from the unknown mystery of life itself.”

Elizabeth DeBold & Thomas Steininger

Brooke McNamara is an artist, teacher, and Zen dharma holder. She has published two books of poetry, has instructed Yoga Studies at Naropa University, and is the creator and instructor of online courses Write to the Heart of Motherhood, and others.

“In living and making art, we can be quite creative in laying subconscious traps to inhibit our full authenticity. As teacher or coach, I help you access the deeper, more life-giving reasons for enacting your unique artistic path. Pulling from an endurance and enthusiasm born of many years of personal experience, I will serve as a mirror for your deep wisdom and wellness as you take healthy risks to realize your own deepest creative aliveness.”
