Why is it so difficult to respond consciously when we are upset? Why do we instead resort to hurtful, repetitive, unconscious, reactive behaviors? 

If you’d like the answers to these questions and are ready to begin a journey to conscious emotional response where you experience greater peace of mind, a real sense of connection to your authentic self, deeper gratitude and reverence for life, and begin living a more conscious life of loving and accepting yourself and others, The Presence Process (TPP) is your “how to” manual. The journey of TPP is not an easy one. It is one which author Michael Brown feels people take only through inspiration and guidance and not before they are really ready for it. The Spring offering covers the first two sections of the book which prepares you to understand the value and commitment involved in undertaking the journey and will familiarize your with the challenges and changes that lie ahead. Then, if you have chosen to go ahead with the actual process, there are ten one-week sessions that are geared to change your life and perspective in a major way. It is really about becoming fully present in each moment without the filters of the past.

Join us this Spring for the first of a two-part facilitated series in which we explore the background of The Presence Process and overview the 10-week Presence Process Experience. This will prepare you to self-facilitate through the process over the summer and/or join us in the Fall for a shared group experience of that process.

Topics covered this Spring:

  • Week 1:  Overview and conceptual background, What is Present Moment Awareness, The Heartbeat of Reinforcement, Aligning Intent
  • Week 2: Part 1 – Mechanics of the Process, Consciousness of Questions, Pathways of Awareness
  • Week 3:  Part 1 – Emotional Imprinting, Emotional Charge, Beyond Addiction and Affliction, Trading Results for Consequences
  • Week 4:  Part 2 – Preparing for the Journey
  • Week 5:  Part 3 – Overview and Preparation for the 10-week process

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding: in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
