An unusual research expedition took "flow hunter" Dr Michele Ufer as a researcher and extreme runner to four continents, to his physical and psychological limits and to the world of psychology and brain research. What did he experience and what were his findings when it comes to FLOW that are important to us all?

How can someone who runs for a hobby, who has never completed a 10 km race or more in his life, reach a top 10 position in a 250 km extreme run through the driest desert in the world after only 3.5 months of preparation and outperform numerous experienced (professional) athletes?

How does someone who has just taken up running and a diving instructor come upon the idea of producing a documentary film about the Mount Everest marathon? What do they experience during this project and what did they have to deal with? Why did the film win a festival prize? You’ll find out the answers to all this in our moving film presentation. And much more.

How can we increase our performance, go beyond our own limits and expand and overcome them without sooner or later ending up burned out, exhausted or injured? Dr Michele Ufer distances himself from conventional motivational slogans and goes on a provoking and fascinating investigation.

Would you like to find out more or are you interested in a lecture, workshop or coaching session? Great. Dr Michele Ufer is looking forward to hearing from you.
