Authentic presence

Do you sometimes censor yourself? That you don’t truly reveal yourself to not hurt or offend someone? Do you find it difficult to stay yourself when being together? Do you feel stuck in a role of the good son or the caring wife? And you actually want something else also? Do you sometimes experience conversations greyish, and would you like more colours and spiciness? Then this workshop/training may be for you. 

At the core of authentic presence is the skill to be with reality as it is, without trying to make anything happen or avoid anything from happening.  Intimately listening to myself and revealing what is there, and being fully present with the other, without resisting or defending myself.

We practice authentic presence through four broad skills:

  • Be intimate with myself, noticing how it is like to be me on the level of sensations
  • Reveal myself with radically owned honesty, without censoring or shame
  • Be intimate with others, deeply available to seeing as they see and feeling as they feel
  • Be with reality as it is, without trying to make anything happen or prevent anything from happening

We offer weekly evening sessions, full day or weekend tastings, and an in depth trainings in authentic presence.
