Summary

More people are discovering the freedom of being fully present in the moment, yet how do we stay present in the middle of a family crisis or a hectic workday? With The Power of Presence, Peter Senge presents a practical seminar in a skill he calls "presencing": a method for applying the serenity of living in the now to even our most demanding, high-pressure challenges.

In this wholly original audio program, this MIT teacher and pioneering author of The Fifth Discipline teaches you a powerful approach to living that starts with resting in open, nonjudgmental awareness - and leads to clear actions for creating positive change and opening to larger fields of synchronicity. Join Peter Senge to explore:

  • "Theory U" - a three-stage process for attuning ourselves individually and collectively to every facet of a situation and then acting from our deepest wisdom
  • Tested tools for presencing - dialogue interviews, learning journeys, and peer shadowing
  • Personal practices - techniques for opening your sensory capacities, slowing down your mind, expanding your empathy, and more

Through his acclaimed seminars and work with businesses, nonprofits, and educational institutions, Peter Senge has helped thousands worldwide use presencing to create effective change in the world. With The Power of Presence, you will learn to let go of the limiting "truths" of your life - and discover the limitless potential that arises when you connect with the ever-changing reality of each moment.

A very useful work<br />

This book is very useful and thought provoking. Senge does a well balanced interweaving of the practical, the scientific, the anecdotal, and the mystical. Some of the stuff is a tad on the fluffy side, but interesting nonetheless.
