Fit Soul Fit Body, 9 Keys to a Healthier Happier You
World-renowned shaman Brant Secunda and legendary Ironman Mark Allen will talk about their bestselling book, Fit Soul Fit Body. They will speak about how to become truly fit from the inside out and take your life to the next level. Whether youâre training for an athletic event or just want to improve the quality of your life and how you feel about yourself, Fit Soul Fit Body - 9 Keys to a Healthier Happier You is about everything that makes you well.
Think you know what it means to be fit? Think again.
Letâs face it: fitness goes far beyond how long it takes to walk or run a mile. When youâre stressed out, emotionally drained, overworked, overweight, and not satisfied with your physical body, you canât get much of anything accomplishedâ"at work, at home, on the race track, wherever and in whichever capacity. Put simply, when youâre spiritually unfit, life is a greater challenge. That mythical âbalanceâ youâve always dreamed of achieving was just a myth. Not anymore!
Mark Allen was one of the top triathletes in the world but struggled to overcome the barriers that were preventing him from winning the grueling Ironman World Championship Triathlon in Kona, Hawaii.
Then he began studying with Brant Secunda, healer and teacher in the Huichol Indian tradition of Mexico. Brant is the only Westerner to have completed a 12-year apprenticeship with Don JosÃ© Matsuwa, the revered Huichol Indian shaman who lived a vibrant, happy life to 110 years old. Brant taught Mark the spiritual and healing exercises that allowed him to integrate his physical and psychological fitness. He gives Brant much of the credit for his remarkable success.
Mark went on to win a never-before-achieved six Ironman World Championships in a row, and was eventually dubbed âThe Worldâs Fittest Manâ by Outside magazine.
Brant Secunda is an internationally acclaimed shaman, healer and ceremonial leader in the Huichol Indian tradition of Mexico. He completed a twelve-year apprenticeship with Don JosÃ© Matsuwa, the renowned Huichol Shaman who lived to be 110 years old and who adopted Brant as his grandson. Alongside other dignitaries including President Jimmy Carter, Brant cofounded the Peace University in Berlin, and is a founding member of the American Herbalists Guild and has taught at the American Holistic Medical Association Annual Conference.
Brant lectures at conferences and universities worldwide, and since 1979 has been the director of the Dance of the Deer Foundation Center for Shamanic Studies in Soquel, California. He has worked with many organizations including The World Health Organization and the American Holistic Medical Association, was the cofounder of the Humanistic Medicine Congress in Germany, and was a nominee to be a recipient of the prestigious MacArthur Award for his service worldwide. He leads seminars and retreats at spectacular places of power like Japan, Crete, the Italian Alps, Alaska, Mt. Shasta in California, and the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. His work has been documented on television, radio, and in articles and books throughout the USA, Europe and Japan.
Mark Allen is a six-time Ironman World Champion. He has been called âThe Worldâs Fittest Manâ by Outside magazine and âThe Greatest Triathlete of All Timeâ by Triathlete magazine. He attributes his success to his ongoing studies with Brant Secunda, who showed him how to find fitness not only in physical strength but in the power of personal spirit and balanced living. Mark and his races have been featured numerous times on major network television and in national publications; he has appeared on more than 100 popular covers worldwide.
Since leaving the sport after a successful 15-year career while still at the top of his game, Mark has worked as a sports commentator and advisor for NBC. Heâs also consulted with and spoken to many Fortune 500 companies, including American Express, Honeywell, Northwestern Mutual, and Oracle. He developed âForever Fit,â a special program designed to help people live a healthy life.
Brant and Mark continue to work together at events and retreats around the world and to develop Fit Soul, Fit Body programs. Their book was inspired by a successful workshop they created 12 years ago for people in the US and Europe seeking practical tools for transforming themselves from the inside out. The tenets of Fit Soul, Fit Body offer the ultimate, unique roadmap for fostering optimal health, happiness, and wellbeing.
