"The golden thread that runs through Catherine Ingram’s excellent book is the possibility of immediate awakening. Her writing clearly flows out of her own realization, rather than just an intellectual understanding of spiritual truth. If you are willing for suffering to come to an end, the act of reading her words can become an awakening."
—Eckhart Tolle, Author of The Power of NowBuy Passionate Presence from Amazon.com; support the forum"Wow! Catherine Ingram is a modern day mystical poet. Her insights on divine living are at once scientific and poetic, rooted and lyrical, simple and profound. It is as if all of the burning questions in our collective hearts reached God's ears and Catherine Ingram was the reply. She makes living and aliveness look so easy. Her wisdom and clarity are matched only by her eloquence and dearness. Move over Rumi and Hafiz, there's a new kid in town."
—Moon Unit Zappa, actress, author of America the Beautiful"Catherine speaks gracefully and insistently of the simple, present, and yet totally surprising and fresh recognition of oneself as that which is. Devoid of "how-to's" her book is a refreshing reminder of just how close real fulfillment is."
—Gangaji, spiritual teacher and author of You are That"A reminder to the heart of sacred presence. Wise, tender, simple--Passionate Presence reads like a sigh of relaxation."
—Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart
