The Presence Process: A Journey into Present Moment Awareness by Michael Brown


“Personal peace is not given to us by others – it arises through our response to ourselves.”

The Presence Process invites us to experience present moment awareness as a way of life, a daily approach to living on this planet. The Presence Process makes it possible for anyone to experience Presence and present moment awareness without having to take the long, challenging path most of us usually take

Why is it so difficult to simply be present?

The reason is that our deeply suppressed emotional imprints from childhood—which Eckhart Tolle calls “the pain-body”— distract us from an awareness of the present moment. Until this “emotional charge” from our past is integrated, all our attempts to quiet our thoughts and access the peace, joy, and love that are bedrock to our beingness are of only limited success. We all long to be free of our discomfort and experience inner peace. However, the attempt to get rid of our discomfort is misguided. We’re not broken and don’t need to be “healed.” Rather, our discomfort needs to be integrated.

Because Presence is universal, it has the miraculous ability to manifest in our daily experience the exact circumstances required for us to integrate the dysfunction that keeps us from experiencing the radiance of present moment awareness. The Presence Process is a journey that guides us into taking responsibility for our emotional integration. It’s a way to consciously “grow up.”

We are each responsible for determining the quality of our personal experience. The Presence Process teaches us how to exercise authentic personal responsibility in a practical manner. It reveals the mechanics that shape the way we feel about our life. It offers a simple, practical approach to accomplishing and maintaining personal peace in the midst of globally accelerating change, discomfort, conflict, and chaos.

Michael Brown
Until 1989 South African-born Michael Brown was living what he called ‘a blissfully unconscious life’ as a music journalist. During this period of his life he developed an acutely painful neurological condition called Horton’s Syndrome. After four years of suffering through conventional medical approaches, he embarked on a quest to integrate his experience through personal inquiry.

As Michael’s quest for resolution unfolded, he began entering an state of being he calls ‘present moment awareness’ – a paradigm of heightened consciousness running parallel to our conventional and mundane world experience. He discovered that his repeated entry into this enlivened state of being, which he accomplished through ceremonial practice, plant medicines, and consciously connected breathing, resulted in a decrease of his own painful condition to the point that it subsided completely.
