Presence : How to Use Positive Energy for Success in Every Situation Paperback


Everyone has known the feeling of being present. Babies and toddlers live there almost constantly. Great performers work in this state. Great athletes win in it. Great teachers teach in it. Every great communicator speaks from this place. It is when fully present that we do our best work and make our deepest impression on others.

In her years as an acting coach, Patsy Rodenburg has discovered the secrets to that elusive quality actors call 'it'.

There are three basic ways human energy moves between people and you can be in any one of the 'three circles' in any situation.

In the first, your focus is purely inward, in the third, all your energy is moving outward.

In the second you are focused, you give energy out and you receive it.

You communicate spontaneously and listen well, you are generous and people are generous in return. And by working on your breath, posture, voice, language, listening skills, focus, courage and trust you can access the second circle on a daily basis.

Your work, relationships, spirituality and passions will all benefit.
