Product Description

Spirituality of Sport focuses on the energy of a benevolent God humans experience as joy and the impetus to play, dance and compete. In exploring and developing a healthy spirituality for body and soul, Saint Sing tells many personal anecdotes and those of her fellow athletes and coaches. She discusses briefly the history of play and sport, from St. Francis' own play to such moderns as Michael Jordan. She describes spiritual and religious trends and reaction to sport and play, the ideal of a balanced person (body, spirit and soul) and connection to the inner athlete, ethical values for Christians engaged in sports, and a model of play as energy that is archetypal in nature. She offers sports-visualization techniques in the form of prayer and positive reinforcement of the body image.
