    Separating SELF from CRAFT – Raymond Prior and Karl Morris – recording of live webinar #304

    Raymond and I collaborated on what we believe to be a ground breaking project called ‘Building Stable Confidence’
    It is a program that has had wonderful reviews and could be a wonderful assistance this year to help you get the best from your game.
    During the webinar we discussed the key concept of
    ‘Separating SELF from CRAFT’
    How can we develop the capability to create some space between our capability as a golfer and our self image as a human being
    How being ‘concerned’ about our value as a human is tied to our evolutionary development
    The early messages we receive as youngsters from important people around us and how this can weave into our identity
    The need to develop a ‘SAFE PLACE’ to play from How our performance can become a THREAT to our identity How this leads to unstable confidence Why your relationship to the game can become so toxic The necessity to ask yourself the question ‘Why do I play golf?’ Not to take your initial answer but to look deeper to what is REALLY important to you
    What are your INTRINSIC and SELF DIRECTED values to play the game? Challenging your core BELIEFS to see if they REALLY work for you The fragility of EXTRINSIC values and why you can never ‘get enough’ The need to JOURNAL your experiences and why that is so important What am I committed to TODAY? Think about WHY you play golf WHEN you play golf Being INTENTIONAL and on purpose This is a wonderful session with Raymond and Karl as they go into some real detail as to how to get the very best from your game

    How Being Mindless affects EVERYTHING we do – Dr Ellen Langer #303

    How Being Mindless affects EVERYTHING we do – Dr Ellen Langer #303

     Today on the Brain Booster we are joined by an extraordinarily special guest Dr Ellen Langer
    Dr Langer has been one of the most influential people in the world of psychology over the past 40 years
    She was the first female tenured professor in psychology at Harvard
    Has written numerous books
    She has conducted so many incredible experiments, most notably the ‘counterclockwise’ experiment where she had older men go into a ‘pod’ that took them back to their younger selves.
    The results as we find out today were extraordinary
    She has been studying Mindfulness for the past 35 years and makes clear that mindfulness is NOT meditation
    Mindfulness is being aware of what is ACTUALLY happening as opposed to what we think is happening based on our auto pilot responses
    Why we need to realise that we DON’T know How our assumptions keep constantly tricking us How research only gives us PROBABILITIES not absolutes The ‘counterclockwise’ study and the amazing possibilities that open up Is ageing a direct consequence of our beliefs surrounding what we believe SHOULD be happening? Can we think ourselves WELL? Can we think ourselves SICK? What living a mindful life looks like To get a copy of Ellen Langer’s new book The Mindful Body go to

    What is the TRUE source of your experience – Andy Morrison #301

    What is the TRUE source of your experience – Andy Morrison #301

    We welcome back onto the Brain Booster Andy Morrison for a further chat about his coaching experiences
    We delve further into the nature of experience and how it is all generated by your thinking
    The Lost Art of Golf 2 day school at Archerfield Links with Karl Morris and Gary Nicol 
    The ULTIMATE interactive learning experience at the ULTIMATE location
    Andy is very prolific on Twitter/X
    His main message is that he offers the opportunity to develop your game without using lots of mental game strategies and techniques
    Why we fall into the trap of focusing too much on the CONTENT of our thinking This often actually creates the opposite effect of actually making the mind even busier What could we put our faith in that will have some longevity? What is the true nature of thought? What is actually creating our experience BEFORE the content of our thinking? The difference between having a clear INTENTION about the shot as opposed to falling into the trap of thinking ‘what does this shot say about me?’
    How we hang on to our ‘personal thinking’ Changing our relationship to what the game actually means The ability to ‘stay in the game’ Why trying to ‘fix’ our thinking can be so detrimental A really interesting session with a coach working with players at all levels of the game To find out more about Andy Morrison go to

Great Show!

Great show with Dickin Bettinger. I have been a fan of Sydney Banks wisdom since I found out about him from Sam Jarman when he talked about his book, The Three Principles of Outstanding Golf on one of your previous shows. Dickin has an incredible handle on the 3 principles and is able to put the information in understandable language with down to earth examples. Your interview style brings out the best in your guests. Thanks for all your work to bring helpful information to us hackers

The Best

Karl Morris and Brain Booster are fantastic. It is simply the best golf/mental game pod cast available. Karl Morris has two goal: to help you enjoy the game and get the most out of your game. He exposes the listeners to various philosophies, techniques, teachers, coaches and school of thought but the goals are always the same. Highly entertaining and informative, especially if you are intrigued by the intersection of mindfulness and golf.
