My name is Adam Lowery. I am focused on cultivating awareness of mental health issues that plague our society today. I do this by sharing my own life experiences transparently, and speaking to an array of individuals who are willing to share their life experiences, competence and philosophies. I founded the integrative approach Transrational Structural Behavior Theory (TSBT). The Cognitive Rampage is the self application of TSBT. I am also credited with the discovery of Athletes Depression.
Through an emotionally, verbally and physically violent childhood my only focus was to play Professional Football. A college injury quickly ended that dream. Angry and still needing the thrill, I chose a life of drug dealing that quickly entwined with violence and addiction. To save my life, I transitioned to the nightclub business and saw quick success. The other life followed closely behind. The misery was masked by money and wild nights. Until one random sixteen hour night I made some drastic choices. I left my ten year club career, a 4 year relationship, all of my friends, gave away my possessions and embarked on a 2 year walkabout.
I vagabonded from the Florida Keys to the mountains of Tennessee, and even spent time on “The Rez” in New Mexico. I returned home with a mission. Change self. Helping others was not on my mind. Within 4 years I completed 2 degrees, cultivated TSBT, founded the Athletes Depression diagnosis, launched a podcast and published The Cognitive Rampage. I speak on all issues connected to our mental health and athlete specific related mental health.
In my flow time you will find me in the great outdoors. I surf, dive, kayak, spear and offshore fish. I’ve caught and hunted my food since I was a child, and I have survived on a deserted island. If nature isn’t calling, you’ll find me at reggae festivals, cooking for friends and family, playing pool, writing or reading an actual physical book. I have a serious addiction to a minimalistic lifestyle, the ocean, podcasts, new experiences and randomness. I talk to strangers and too much. I love most people, including you. A secret about my book; my Life Philosophy is hidden within these pages, just like yours.
I believe uncomfortable is where the change is. I believe in the power of you. Love you!
