The Presence Process

by Michael Brown

The Presence Process

Michael Brown

Overview

In 1989, Michael Brown was diagnosed with an acute health condition: Horton Syndrome. As a result, he experienced unbearable headaches multiple times a day. The doctors told him there was no known cure for this illness – and so Brown embarked on a personal journey, looking for ways to heal himself.

After a 9-year odyssey of experimenting with various healing and spiritual techniques, he found a solution. He discovered that his pain and suffering subsided every time he entered a state of what he now calls 'present moment awareness.' His book, The Presence Process, walks us through the 10-week-procedure Brown used to reconnect with his present moment awareness. Regardless of your current health and life circumstances, his core idea is that, as long as you are truly engaged in what is happening in the present moment, you are by default living a life of purpose, meaning, and connection.

"The Presence Process awakens within us the awareness that it's in how we react to what's happening in this moment that sows seeds for what's to come, beyond the borders of our present existence."
