Practicing Presence


With this guided meditation, Bernie Clark, the present moment is the only moment in which we can live our life: it is precious and yet we so often miss it, lost in thoughts, reveries, plans and imaginary worlds. The practice of presence is the practice of returning to this moment, right here and right now, so we can truly experience life regardless of what is happening, regardless of whether we like what is happening and regardless of what we’d prefer to be happening. This is it! This very moment. This exact spot.

Before you begin this meditation, choose a comfortable seated position, either on a cushion or with props, so that you do not need to fidget or move during the class.
