Archery: Energy in Motion


By Debbie Crews Kettering, Ph. D., and Judi Coe Adams



This book is written to enlighten archers to perform what we want, when we want it, on the archery range. It is about performance, an integral part of learning to shoot archery. In order to perform it is necessary to achieve a synchronized state of being that allows those great shots to flow through the system (mind, brain, and body). The “system” itself is a remarkable entity that is available to assist us in whatever we want to accomplish. It is more often the case that the performer is unclear, undecided, and possibly in a state of being that interferes with the system’s performance. Learning to work with the system and to continually observe and adapt is the challenge of the game. It provides us with many exciting possibilities every day that we play. If we choose to accept these challenges, the possible outcomes are tremendous. In fact, they are often greater than we could imagine. Believing in this concept of endless possibilities from which we choose, prepare, and perform is the first step to enhancing performance. Once we choose to believe, the energy starts moving in the desired direction.
