Peak experiences

A peak experience as I understand them is a moment of heightened awareness during an activity, typically artistic, athletic or spiritual.

Roger Bannister reported a peak experience during the his then record breaking four minute mile.

Yesterday, at breakfast, I sat with a Tibetan Dzogchen master for satsang. At lunch I took part in a Wim Hof breath workshop and ice bath. I wrote a post for this blog in the afternoon. In the evening I went to a fancy dress party with my partner and a bunch of friends.

The cumulative effect of this sequence of events felt to me like a peak experience. It was a pretty wild day as days go. Full to the brim with the kind of juice that makes life awe inspiring and memorable.
