Quiet Time and the Present Moment

As I prepare for Expanding Present Moment Consciousness which begins tomorrow, I am taking my own introverted time to reflect on how this process of growth and consciousness occurs for different types of people. Healing occurs when we have quiet time to ourselves for reflection and journaling and napping and drawing and walking alone. It also occurs when we can feel connection to our world in a healthy, nurturing way …


On Slowing Down – Present Moment Consciousness

I have realized across the years that as my life has sped up, filled up, overflowed with events, challenges, life stuff and dreams, that I have somehow known to make time in my schedule to slow down.

Is Your Signature Coaching Presence Your Ally? (Or a hindrance to your success?)

This week is dedicated to the subject of the many faces of presence, depending on what aspect of life or what profession we are engaged in. Yesterday we spoke to the basic nature of presence.
