Famous sports psychologist George Mumford, who helped to lead the Bulls and Lakers to a total of 11 NBA championships and worked with star athletes Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, is coming to share his expertise. On Wednesday, April 8, at 7 p.m. in the Gallagher Theater, 1303 E. University Blvd., Mumford, a motivational speaker as well, will be giving a talk aimed at teaching a simple but powerful method to help achieve goals: meditation. As a meditation teacher, Mumford vows for mindfulness in life as one of the best ways to be accomplished and push oneself. Meditation practices increase concentration, focus and mental dexterity. His techniques have proven successful not just on the court, but also and with many at-risk teens. This talk, hosted by the Confluence Center for Creative Inquiry, will help any person, no matter what profession or goal, to improve his or her performance. The event is free. There is more information at the event's Facebook page.
