I am currently finishing up the 2nd Edition of the book, “The Cognitive Rampage, a dose of authentic revelation”. The 2nd Edition will included editing, revised chapters and theoretical expansion. The book, 1st and 2nd editions are the application of Transrational Structure Behavior Theory (TSBT), an approach I founded. This is an integrative and all-inclusive approach self revelation or change. Change based in the cognitive, behavioral, environmental and biological sciences. Not motivational fluff and word play.
Allow me to walk you through what TSBT means?
“Trans-” is a prefix occurring in loanwords from Latin (transcend) Trans-rational; on this model used with the meanings “beyond”, “changing thoroughly,” in combination with elements of rational origin. “Transrational” is to transition to rational thinking and self-talk. This requires not simple cognitive reframing, but deep belief extraction and analysis. Beliefs then processed through rational filters and applied in a personalized structure. Structuralist are linked to behavior sciences; whereas to combine a structured approach to each of these behavioral influences; cognitive, environmental, interpersonal, cultivated from true personal analysis and your core beliefs for better and quicker assimilation. The text includes a Personal Life Inventory, a Life Philosophy Reveal Worksheet and a Rational Self Analysis Map. All of these forms are in the book and are available for free download at adamlowery.com/shop. You can apply this method on your own with no prescription or professional needed, and there are NO HARMFUL SIDE-EFFECTS. Reveal your authentic self while cultivating your #CognitiveRampage in just 180 pages.

"The Killing Fields, Athletes Depression" by Adam Lowery releases 2018
My new book “The Killing Fields, Athletes Depression” releases next year!
What is Athletes Depression?
I experienced Athletes Depression for nearly a decade. After all, I am the theoretical mind behind the revelation of Athletes Depression. I believe this should be an actual diagnosis within the Diagnostic Statistic Manual of mental health disorders (the DSM). AD hosts a different etiology as compared to its main misdiagnoses (and most currently related) Bipolar, ADHD, Major Depressive Disorder and even Identity Dissociative Disorder. These are the most popular misdiagnoses related to Athletes Depression.
In short, being raised as a high performance athlete from childhood, and playing only as far as high school or college, especially professional, creates a 50-75% increase in the probability the athlete will experience severe symptomatic mental health issues. The manifestation of Athletes Depression contains a similar and unfortunate common etiology that leads to the popular misdiagnoses. Childhood athlete to adult athlete creates the individual to determine personal value by performance. A form of direct programming meant to develop a resistive consciousness and one who is less likely to ask for help. This naturally creates a cognitive dissonance toward any possibility of “perceived weakness”. In this sense I am categorizing the existing social stigma surrounding mental health. Meaning most athletes do not seek mental health help and choose to fight it on their own. Combined with the lengthy exposure to hyper vigilant environments and situations being linked to highly rewarding states, this begins to condition the body and mind to need, continue seek, and in many cases, cause the individual to consciously or unconsciously create hyper-vigilant environments and situations to return the body and mind to these rewarding states. Many times this manifests in very high risk situations, people and behavior. The bigger risk the better. A cycle begins to emerge. The hardworking, non fearing, non “weak” athlete fights for varying lengths and “wins”. It may even appear as if they are overworking, working perpetually or appear manic. Eventually the individual will “lose” for various reasons (lengthy explanation), generally based in emotional choices and reactions. This sets in a “we lost” mindset that can last weeks, months or even years. Due to value of self being taught to be measured in performance (behaviorally, cognitively and socially), depression and severe self judgement begins and can last lengthy periods of time. The vigilance to which the individual fights the depression many times begins with the first misdiagnosis of ADHD. This overtime combines with severe depressive episodes, and other symptomatic issues begin to emerge; addiction, violence and intense anger. Feelings and thoughts as far as self harm repeat. At first, second or even third assessment, overtime the criterium appears as if the Bipolar diagnosis is present. In reality the athlete is, has been and will continue to cycle this way due to “Athletes Depression”, NOT bipolar disorder and or ADHD. The manifestation and etiology of Athletes Depression has gone undetected and has indirectly caused countless misdiagnosis to spin athletes, and especially x athletes lives seemingly out of control. Leaving the individual with thoughts and feelings their mental health struggles are different than any therapist, and especially any partner, family member or boss can understand. The Athletes are left on the killing fields alone and depressed. Lost.

The Cognitive Rampage Podcast #124: Dan Cleland
(Founder, Trip Leader) Dan Cleland Author of Pulse Of The Jungle and Founder of Pulse Tours – Ayahuasca Adventure Center https://www.pulsetours.com/meet-da-team/
Over 10 years ago, a young man from Walkerton, Ontario, Canada had a recurring dream to explore the world. The day to day cage of 9-5 was not big enough to contain this young adventurer. He began to research the great land of sandy beaches, cheap beer and groovy vibes … Brazil.
After learning some Portuguese, buying some maps of Brazil and maxing out his credit at the bank, Daniel Cleland ventured off on an independently organized six week journey through Brazil. The minute he arrived to his hostel in Copacabana, he dropped his bags and B-lined straight to the beach … the first time this land-locked boy had seen the ocean in years. As his eyes feasted on the glorious expanse of Copacabana beach, Daniel knew that dreams were just reality waiting to happen. His life had taken a turn, and the rest of his six week adventure would define the next decade of his life.
Upon returning the 9-5 grind in Canada after his six week sojourn in the land of samba and caipirinhas, the only thought in Daniel’s mind was “how do I get back there?” Within a month, he’d located a job in international tourism and began to work his way back down to the promised land. Working for a major international travel company, Daniel spent the next years leading adventures all across Central and South America, where he learned how to communicate like a pro in Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese, and how to show people the gems of this awe-inspiring continent.
Never being one to play by anyone else’ rules, Daniel began to do his own thing and create itineraries to South America for family and friends. Now, Pulse Adventure Tours has become a live and thriving entity, with a growing culture of awesome people’s support!
Traveling the world has also inspired Daniel to enroll in a Master of Arts degree in Intercultural and International Communication, from which he is graduating in 2014. Familiarity with this field of study helps Pulse Adventure Tours build strong intercultural bridges between our travelers and the locals we encounter along the way. Many of our travelers experience a whole new world which they return to independently in the future.read more
Athlete Mental Recovery Sessions
Athlete Mental Coach “In Camp”
Have a fight, tryout, set competition, season or tournament upcoming? Elite athletes already know the impacts of the mental game as well as having a personal mental coach in your camp. I help keep your life balanced outside the gym, off field & out of the ring. I help you maintain the mental game of life, not the sport. Being an athlete not only means you see life in a much different way, it calls for different life demands. A hectic schedule, little free time, serious physical and mental demands, on top of having a different way of understanding the world, others and self. I help you balance the requirements it takes to be a champion in the sport your love. I help keep the ones in your life your love so much, in your life. A happy fighter is a good fighter. A focused athlete is a super athlete. With your life in balance you are able to obtain “Pure Focus Potential”. Not by “blocking it out” or some sort of “Zen BS”, but by maintaining your life and mental game as much as you do your physical health with mental training. So your life is as healthy, trained, maintained and balanced as you are physically when you compete.
