Using golf as a metaphor for life,
A Golf Course in Miracles
by Charlotte McGinnis & Gene Bogart
“Hits a metaphysical HOLE-IN-ONE!”
Emotional Intelligence is necessary for success in everything. When you are able to manage your emotions, you are in control. You are not being taken over by the demons of stress! On the golf course or in daily life, those who attain success and mastery are those who are able to manage their emotions when circumstances are not so cordial. Easier said than done, right? Well, the connections golf-pro Charlotte McGinnis and co-author Gene Bogart make are nothing short of revelatory, and put the power of golf—and life—into your own hands.
Full of wisdom and spiritual insight, McGinnis and Bogart take the teachings of the world-renowned text A Course in Miraclesand apply them to the game of golf with ‘swinging’ results. A Golf Course in Miracles is not the kind of book that needs to be read in one continuous flow. It can, to be sure; but it can also be read a little here, a little there, as it is in many ways a ‘series of essays’ on various topic areas of golf, and life, and the nature of the universe itself. It is intended to be light-hearted—even humorous at times—and is uplifting, motivational, and inspiring throughout. Divided into twenty-seven “holes,” the authors break down the mental checklist of all golfers—a list that mirrors the same thought processes of life—and teach a new way of seeing and experiencing that is full of peace and understanding. When applied, they create an aura of calm no golf ball—or any other outside influence—can penetrate.
With over fifty combined years of studying, teaching, and applying spiritual and holistic practices, McGinnis and Bogart use golf as a metaphor for life in a book that is surely “not for golfers only.” Their message: Peace is always a choice that is available at any time… and the skills and tools taught in this book are designed to create a more serene and joyful journey, not merely lower your handicap.
In fact, if you’re not careful, A Golf Course in Miracles might inspire as much change in your life as it does in your golf game!
