PERTH, AU – -(Ammoland.com)- Author of the book, Zen, Mediation & The Art of Shooting, Ray Mancini combines his deep understanding of Eastern philosophies and applies them to his practical training processes, methodologies and techniques to help readers achieve a state of peace.

“Zen, Meditation and the Art of Shooting is aimed at all professional and recreational shooters,” Mancini says. “However, it’s not a technical manual or a how­to book for shooting. Instead, it helps readers understand the intimate connection between ‘Zen and performance’, not just in shooting, but in all aspects of life.”

Mancini explained that to acquire great skill you must concentrate on every aspect of execution from start to finish. However, to achieve great performance – one must not “think” at all. When an individual can accomplish a task successfully without thinking and it merely occurs – this is Zen.

Mancini encourages readers to unleash their full potential and achieve maximum performance in whatever field they endeavor.

“Trying times provide an ideal period to develop the skills to reach maximum potential,” Mancini describes. “Once you reach your zen in the most stressful environments, you’ll learn to thrive in any situation.”

Zen, Meditation & the Art of Shooting is available on Amazon and iTunes.

Unusual, and very appropriate for those of us who carry or have firearms for self defesne especially. It’s difficult and expensive to train as often and thoroughly as we should. A book like this will certainly help us get into the right mind set and attitude that we hope we will never need, but may. Thanks, LaserMax for posting this.
