Zen Presence -What's it about?



Zen Presence is about life.  It is about 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.  It is about keeping hope.  Finally, it is about helping others to do the same.

Here at Zen Presence I share ideas and methods that help to develop happiness, fullfilment, and a sense of purpose.  In the last five years I have transformed my life from a life of stress, burnout, resentment, and unfullfilment to a life of balance.  I am happy with my life and I am happy with myself.  I continue to grow and expand each day, but I have learned to be content in the present moment.  Each day I seek a path with heart.  I would like to share with you what I have learned along the way.
