Jamie Wheal - Altered States to Altered Traits: Hacking Flow


Jamie Wheal is the co-founder of the Flow Genome Project, a project dedicated to mapping the states of ultimate human performance, based on the idea of flow states. Flow is a concept first introduced by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi in Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience (1990) and expanded on in Finding Flow: The Psychology of Engagement with Everyday Life (1997).

Altered States to Altered Traits: Hacking Flow

Jamie Wheal speaks at TEDx Black Rock City. "It's never been easier to get high, and it's just as hard as it's always been to stay that way." In this talk, Jamie Wheal, Executive Director the Flow Genome Project, details how rapid advancements in technology, psychology and pharmacology have led to an unprecedented uptick in our access to peak states, and how we might be able to use those moments of clarity and inspiration to learn, do and be much more than we thought possible.
