Zen Presence is about life. It is about freeing your self (awareness) from the grips of your ego and all of it's noise, and awakening to what is important in your life. It is about mindful living, identifying your values, and what adds value to your life. It is about slowing down enough to experience life first hand. Finally, it is about helping others to do the same - the path of the Bodhisattva.
Here at Zen Presence I share ideas and methods that help to develop happiness, mindfulness, and fulfillment. In the last five years I have transformed my life from a life of stress, burnout, resentment, and confusion to a life of balance. I would like to share with you what I have learned along the way.
As long as space endures,
as long as sentient being remain,
until then, may I too remain
and dispel the miseries of the world.
~Shantideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva
