Ulrich Nitzschke

Based on decades of personal experience in Zen, humanistic psychology, various modern sports and traditional spiritual paths, the author explains, with great expert knowledge and convincing empathy, the overriding importance of awareness in golf and follows up with highly effective training methods. The book illustrates how Western man suffering from stressful daily routine can use golf as a method to enter a path to personal development and growth, just as martial arts of the ancient Japanese Samurai were under the influence of Zen philosophy transformed into modern Eastern spiritual disciplines. After more than three decades of serving in the German diplomatic service Ulrich Nitzschke started in 2004, at the age of sixtyfour, his free lance activities as life coach and author. He sees his new career as the natural outcome of his long-life quest for personal growth and spiritual development, that included Human Potential Psychology, Eastern Spirituality, Western sports disciplines (skiing, sailing and golf) as well as Eastern spiritual paths like Zen-Meditation and Kyudo (Japanese Archery).
