Sport And Spirituality

RRP $414.99

This work examines how the individual player moves toward a religious enlightenment through sport. It argues that this spiritual enlightenment is uniquely her or his own without the trappings of doctrinal creeds or traditional religious discourse. The spiritual dimension of sport is examined from a 'non-confessional' point of view (unique human experience per se is emphasized); no association with any religion needs to be made. This is in contrast to a 'confessional' approach to sport and spirituality studies (understandings of sport within specific religious traditions). How does sport serve as spiritual practice in the life of the individual, especially for the person who may not actually have any religious affiliation? Among sports included in the book are sky diving, motorcycle riding, long distance running, spelunking, scuba diving and solo sailing. Each sporting orbit or topos is then amplified by analogy with myths and rituals from world religions where applicable. Autobiographical testimonies of sporting people are used to suggest how sport can be bonafide spiritual practice. The argument is that lives are empowered not by brute strength and tenacity alone, but also by sustaining personal coherence within the lived experience of one's sporting activities.
