The Practice of Presence
Five Paths for Daily LifePaperback - 2006
The Practice of Presence is about coming alive to the present moment. In the seminal ideas and experiential activities of five great spiritual paths, as seen through the lens of a seeker's experience, the reader will find practical guidance on how to seek daily what we truly desire behind all the urgencies and obligations of our lives: contact with our own immediate inner truth. T'ai Chi, prayer and meditation are well known. The Alexander Technique and Jungian studies are not usually thought of as spiritual, and the Gurdjieff teaching is relatively unknown. Each of these paths to wholeness is complementary to the others, calling on body, mind and feeling in unique ways that can lead to a growing integration of all three. The author, Patty de Llosa, has studied all of these paths intensively for many years, while pursuing fulltime activities as a journalist, parent and teacher. Her website is www.practiceofpresence.com.
