The Game in the Brain

The Game in the Brain follows retired AFL Legend. Luke Darcy as he explores the techniques that modern athletes use to enhance their mental wellbeing, relationships and performance – the same principals that can also be used to improve the lives of everyday people.

Drawing on his own experiences Luke connects with current and former athletes who share their own unique stories and approaches to mind training. Luke learns how individual athletes like Sally Pearson and Billy Slater employ the practices of gratitude, empathy and mindfulness as part of their routine. And with the guidance of elite sports’ most successful practitioners from clubs such as South Sydney Rabbitohs and Richmond FC, Luke discovers how they are connecting with each other on a deeper level through embracing imperfections and showing vulnerability.  The Mindful Athlete aims to educate, entertain and inspire as it takes us behind the scenes into the fascinating world of modern sports psychology, presenting athletes as real people. Through their stories and insights into mind training tools, our audience will be equipped with techniques that they can apply in their own lives.
