Presence Focusing with Ann Weiser Cornell

Difficult Emotions Don’t Have to Rule Your Life.

Presence can help if you’ve suffered through shame, anger, depression, self-criticism, relationship issues, fleeing from happiness, or even had a hard time taking action in your life.

The practical, compassionate insights in this book are roadmaps to help you feel calmer, clearer, and happier.

Most of our courses are available as phone/computer seminars. Wondering how that works?

We use Zoom, an online video conference platform, to connect you to other students and the teacher. It’s easy and fun to use, great to see your fellow students and the teacher. You can join us via your camera-equipped computer, tablet, or smart phone. Prefer not to be on video? You can call in by phone. There will be lectures, demonstrations, question periods, group exercises, and paired exercises.

We’ve been doing online and phone based seminars since 2003. We’re old hands at it and they work amazingly well.
