Who is Jamie Wheal

Jamie Wheal is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-nominated worldwide bestseller Stealing Fire and the founder of the Flow Genome Project, an international organization dedicated to researching and training peak human performance. Since its founding in 2011, it has become the world’s leading voice of evidence-based peak performance, counting among the hundreds of thousands of people in its global community, including award-winning academics, legendary professional athletes, commanders of Special Operations and Fortune 500 business leaders.

Recapture the Rapture – a world that has lost its mind
“We must account for all the places we have traded courage for comfort, dedication for distraction, and information inspiration. Put simply, as we unravel this story, it will get worse before it gets better“
Now Jamie Wheal presents his new book “Recapture the Rapture: Rethinking God, Sex and Death in a World That’s Lost Its Mind”. A book in which an expert in leadership and peak performance, specializing in neuroscience and the application of flow states, outlines a revolutionary new practice, hedonic engineering, which combines the best of neuroscience and optimal psychology. It is an intensive program of breathing, movement and sexuality that repairs trauma, increases inspiration and strengthens connections, helping us to wake up, grow and present ourselves to a world that needs us all.
