Lecture and Book Signing with Arno Ilgner
Join Arno for a lecture, discussion, Q&A, and book signing. He'll dig into how your mind creates fears that hold you back from taking risks. His first book, The Rock Warrior’s Way, addresses how to focus attention as a warrior would. His second book, Espresso Lessons, gives you tangible ways to work through fears and mental limitations.
Topics of the lecture
• The Learning Process
We tend to think of stress is a negative. Yet stress is a natural part of life and essential for learning. The relevant question is not how to get rid of stress but rather how much stress will allow us to learn.
• The Mind’s Limitations to Learning
The realm of the mind’s expertise is the comfort zone. Learning requires us to go outside our comfort zone and take on stress. To do this we must rely on something other than our mind. We must rely on the actual experience.
• Engaging Experiences for Learning
Risks and challenges lie outside our comfort zone and are therefore daunting and scary. We need to find ways to engage experiences without being talked out of them by our mind.
