Peak Experiences

There’s no better feeling than when something incredible happens to us. It’s so invigorating, and we feel so good about ourselves. Is it possible to get more of these peak experiences?

  • Thank you for your podcasts. I enjoy all of your wise words. Today I was reminded of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Peak Experiences “occur when a person experiences the world totally for what it is, and there are feelings of euphoria, joy, and wonder.”

    For me, my peak experiences have mainly occur when in I am in nature. I still recall those feelings of euphoria, joy & wonder when in England’s lake district, just outside of Keswick. We were driving up into the hills and came just over a peak. There in front of us was such an awe inspiring vista. I had such a profound feeling of peace and serenity. I felt so connected with the beauty of it all, the colors, the lake, the clouds, the fresh cool air, the mountains and the absolute stillness.

    When I get into a down place I can, at times, conger up some of those feelings and go to a place of calm. Those thoughts of nature plus my mantra “this too shall pass” have guided my many times in my life.

    • I think that most peak experiences are the result of connection. Connection to nature, animals or other people. So this makes complete sense 💕
