Emotional Intelligence is necessary for success in everything. When you are able to manage your emotions, you are in control-and not being taken over by the demons of stress! On the golf course or in 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 Miracles and apply them to the game of golf with staggering 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 lighthearted-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 the book are meant 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! -- from the FOREWORD written by GARY RENARD, bestselling author of The Disappearance of the Universe and Your Immortal Reality: "If, like me, you love the Course, it will be easy for you to love this fun, clever, and profound book, A Golf Course in Miracles. If you play golf, your game will never be the same, only better. And if you're reading this book for the humor and the wisdom, you won't be disappointed. Thanks, Gene and Charlotte, for the cool book, and for reminding us that A Course in Miracles is a happy form of spirituality!" -- from GREGG BRADEN, New York Times bestselling author of The Divine Matrix, and Fractal Time: "In A Golf Course in Miracles, golf-pro Charlotte McGinnis and co-author Gene Bogart masterfully remind us that powerful lessons await in the seemingly insignificant moments of life - on the golf course, classroom, or living room. With laser-like precision and a down-to-earth style this book is about you, me, our world, and the rich lessons found in everyday experience." -- from MARCUS GILLETTE, acclaimed author and presenter (with wife Sheila) of The Teachings of THEO: "Charlotte and Gene have delivered a wonderful gift... clear, funny, and highly insightful. As a golfer, I absolutely loved the metaphors in this gem of a book!" -- from GARY WIREN, Ph.D. - Pro Golfer, Teacher, Author, TV Host - Member: PGA Hall of Fame: "If you wish to take the tension out of your game, 'A Golf Course in Miracles' gives you the game plan!"
