Michael Brown

"The Presence Process"





Michael Brown's - "The Presence Process" - fully outlined in The Presence Process follows on from Eckhart Tolle's "The Power of Now" and addresses the fourth major roadblock to implementing these steps to authenticity and the Tao of change, namely the deep seated emotional and physical blockages that many of us carry.

Present moment awareness - a state of being

As with Eckhart Tolle's work, it is very easy to dismiss all this as "new age mumbo jumbo"! Or to speed-read through the material and conclude "yeah OK I've got it".

With the deepest of respect - you almost certainly haven't "got it". How do I know? Quite simply I did that too - and later came to realise that I didn't "know" it at all.

This stuff has to be experienced. Present moment awareness is a state of being as opposed to something we do or merely grasp intellectually.

There is a big emphasis on healing the inner child. Brown demonstrates that unresolved trauma [and that doesn't have to mean physical or sexual or any other extreme abuse] experienced as a child, and held within our emotional body in an energy form, is a major determinant of recurring patterns in adult behaviour.

Yes my initial reaction was probably the same as yours... but to my astonishment, I have discovered that he has point - and a powerful one - that does a have a direct impact on one's approach to the Tao of change.

I have not undertaken all aspects of his process as laid out in the book - but I have done major elements of it and found it to be very powerful in identifying and clearing previously unidentified "emotional baggage".

Managing Personal Change


The inherent (and flawed) assumption in most training and work-related attempts at encouraging personal change (in support of organisational change) is that it is skills based, in other words we can be taught to change.

Whilst it is true that we can be taught, generally we won't change.

We can't change because of our "immunity to change" or inner resistance.

The self improvement resources that are featured on the link below will help you deal with the considerable challenge of managing personal change.
