When South African Michael Brown began entering what he calls "present-moment awareness," he discovered a heightened consciousness that runs parallel to conventional, mundane experience. In due course, he charted a methodical pathway into present moment awareness. This practical procedure, called The Presence Process, is his first book detailing this ten-week process. His second book, Alchemy of the Heart, will be followed by a third, Cat Tales for Mariette, to be published by Namaste Publishing in October 2016.
The Presence Process: A Journey into Present Moment Awarenessby Michael Brown
Why is it so difficult to simply be present? The reason is that our deeply suppressed emotional imprints from childhood which Eckhart Tolle calls “the pain-body” distract from an awareness of the present moment. We’re not broken and don’t need to be healed but rather, our discomfort needs to be integrated. The Presence
Why is it so difficult to simply be present? The reason is that our deeply suppressed emotional imprints from childhood which Eckhart Tolle calls “the pain-body” distract from an awareness of the present moment. We’re not broken and don’t need to be healed but rather, our discomfort needs to be integrated. The Presence Process is a journey that guides readers into taking responsibility for our emotional integration. It is a way to consciously grow up and become responsible for determining the quality of our personal experience. The book teaches readers how to exercise authentic personal responsibility in a practical manner and reveals the mechanics that shape the way they feel about their lives. It offers a simple, practical approach to accomplishing and maintaining personal peace in the midst of globally accelerating change, discomfort, conflict, and chaos.

An excellent read that reaches beyond the intellect and touches the heart. It has transformed my life. I have read many books about being present, and I actively mediate, but this book reaches to levels that go far beyond any other approach. In my opinion, it is the quintessential tool to finding peace and lasting awareness. Thanks to the author!
You have to experience it to know it's value. One thing for sure: you'll never be the same.
This is a wonderful book and powerful book. The author seems to sincerely want to help people by teaching them, among other things, how to breathe in such a way that they can remain present and at peace.
I'm on my 2nd reading and can honestly say that I've experienced many, many shifts in the quality of my life. It's not that things have 'miraculously' changed, but the work offered in this book has empowered me to trasnform the way I experience my life and all things within it. I feel more centered, certainly more present, and have many tools at my fingertips to take full responsibility for every experience in my life. This book really can't be explained adequately, it's really meant to be experienced. It's isn't New Age or Religious, but serene and spiritual...IMHO
Most powerful book I have ever experienced. Have just gone through The Process for a second time. It can be life- changing if you choose it to be. I did. It is ...it will never leave me.
