The State of Flow

Blogger Ref


Ecstasy = Greek term meaning being outside oneself.

The Basics of Flow as understood by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

 Engage in activity that we enjoy and that gives enough challenge to our skills

 We become absorbed in that activity and reach a state of flow in which we are....

totally focussed..........we feel a sense of serenity.......we feel a sense of timelessness....we have a feeling of inner clarity...

Above all, we are not conscious of ourselves or the world around us...

Flow is similar to a state of ecstasy...
