What is a Peak Experience? A peak experience is a mental or physical breakthrough bordering on the mystical. This is the experience we try to reach and help others get to in each and every class. Peak experiences are the moments that shape our lives. Now we’re getting really close to the secret of Shaolin-Do’s incredible popularity. E=MC2 The pieces of the Shaolin-Do experience; Self-Defense, Supportive Atmosphere, Close-knit Community, Health benefits and a near-mystical class experience are incredible and life-changing. Taken in combination they create an unbelievably powerful force of reinvention and motivation in your life. In fact, they create a life-style that wraps around you and infects every moment of your day with confidence, power and excitement. One of the most famous Psychologists of the 20th century agrees with us. (back to top) The Psychologist Abraham Maslow & Shaolin-Do One of the 20th century’s best known Psychologists, Abraham Maslow, theorized that all humans desire self-growth and actualization. His theory, called the hierarchy of needs, suggested that a person first had to satisfy the baser needs before working on personal growth, identity and higher purpose within society. These needs are as follows (paraphrased).
- Hunger, Thirst, Procreation
- Safety & Security = Shaolin-Do
- Community, Belonging, Being Loved = Shaolin-Do
- Self-Esteem = Shaolin-Do
- Self-Actualizing (discovering your identity and purpose in the world) = Shaolin-Do
