Watch this interview I did with mindfulness and performance expert George Mumford, who worked with Phil Jackson and The Chicago Bulls team during the Michael Jordan era, as well as with The Los Angeles Lakers winning another 5 Championships.

Now that I have been captivated by the extraordinary 10-part documentary series “The Last Dance” featuring Michael Jordan and The Chicago Bulls, it brings back my memories of the powerful insights George Mumford shared with me in this interview a few years back.

I am reposting the interview, as it’s not only highly relevant with the release of "The Last Dance" documentary, but also because of high levels of stress than many deal with in life.

You who have followed me know that a big part of what I do is teach awareness and mental skills for effective learning and high performance.

As you can imagine, I was extremely pleased to chat with George Mumford. His insights benefit not only athletes and performers, but are vital for us in all areas of life.

Listen as he addresses manifesting stress symptoms, processes of self knowledge, his view on meditation, mindfulness and performance, his own journey, and much, much more

Legendary NBA coach Phil Jackson said:

“George has "Mumified" the teams I’ve coached over the past 20 years. He has a style of mindfulness that goes beyond ‘just sitting/breathing’ to focusing while in action. For anyone needing to perform at the highest level, George’s book is for you.”

Kobe Bryant said of George:

“George helped me understand the art of mindfulness. To be neither distracted or focused, rigid or flexible, passive or aggressive. I learned just to be.”
