Help needed - Where can I go to learn presence?

Post by grs » Sun Oct 29, 2017 7:49 pm

Hi, just joined the board, I have the audiobook of The Power of now.

Currently suffering depression with Suicidal thoughts, feel that the art of presence could pull me out of it, had brief moments of restbite so far.

Would anybody know where you could go in a full time capacity to learn this skill? I'm in Southern England and have the money to leave work and travel wherever is needed.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated....

I recommend you read Power of Now and Silence Speaks. Also find a good, structured, meditation group. Carry the Tolle teachings into your meditations. Create a context of thought that empowers you with an appreciation for life. Genuine appreciation, deeply and often felt, is life enhancing. Make it a primary focus in your life.

Go within. :wink:

You don't need to travel or spend money... unless you want to.

(There are several helpful Eckhart meditations on his website https://www.eckharttollenow.com/... but you have to sign up in order to access them... and I'm not sure they're all available with the 10 day free trial period...)

The trick is not going anywhere or anywhen else - especially emotionally or mentally. Cease going anywhere or anywhen else and you are automically in presence.
Just 100% devoted to the experience of now.
Namaste,
