- What prompted you to write your last book, Create A World That Works, and do the work you are currently doing? Why is it important at this time in human history?
- Your center is called the Center For Transformational Presence and this seems to be the foundation of your work. What does that mean? Is that something you can develop or are you born with it?
- Often in your lectures you lead the audience through a very fun and informative process called the Four Levels of Engagement. It seems that this alone is a great model for life and leadership. Can you explain the Four Levels?
- You talk about making “once and for all” commitments in a way most people have probably never thought about. What is the double meaning in “once and for all?”
- You often speak about 3 fundamental principles upon which Transformational Presence work is based and how they are based in both ancient wisdom traditions and quantum physics. Please explain those three principles.
- You often say, “A problem is not something to be solved; it is a message to be listened to.” That’s a pretty bold statement in a world that has some very serious problems. Can you explain what you mean by that statement.
- Mindfulness has become a very popular topic these days. What is mindfulness and why is it so important for making a difference in the world?
- You talk about soul and ego in a way that few people do. Please explain the soul-ego partnership and why it is important.
- Intuitive thinking is another important foundation of making a difference in our world today. Please talk more about that.
- You speak a lot about co-creation and, in fact, say that in the mass consciousness we must now move from an “opposition” paradigm to a “co-creative” paradigm. What does this mean?
Create A World that Works
We are living in extraordinary times. We face challenges on all levels: economic, environmental, educational, corporate, governmental, personal, and spiritual. Experts and thought leaders in all of these arenas put forth ideas and models for the way forward. However, great as many of those ideas and models may be, if we are going to create a world that works, there must first be a shift in our awareness, in how we think, and in how we “show up” to life and leadership each day. We can learn to look at challenges from the perspective of potential and opportunity rather than thinking of them as problems to be solved. We can become co-creators of a new and different world rather than trying to fix an old one.
The Power of Your Presence
A great little gift book, The Power of Your Presence is the perfect companion for anyone wanting to reach their greatest potential. Small enough to fit in a purse or pocket, it is right there to help you find your center, focus, and personal power, and strength whenever you have a few minutes to spare. It’s great for a daily commute, waiting for an appointment, or as a meditation aid.
The Manifestation Wheel
Drawing on his deep and profound knowledge of ancient wisdom traditions, how life works, quantum physics, and our increasing understanding of energy fields, not to mention his work with thousands of people who want to bring change into their lives and the world, Alan Seale has written a book that gives you a clear and practical system to do just that.
Soul Mission * Life Vision
Soul Mission * Life Vision is a ground-breaking guidebook to knowing and fulfilling your life’s purpose. It’s the owner’s manual you never received when you entered this world, offering both the theory and the practice that can lead you to getting the most out of your life—physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. This compelling book begins with an in-depth exploration of how life works—understanding your human experience. From there Alan leads you on a powerful expedition to discover your soul’s mission. Anchored by your soul mission, you then take an amazing flight into the world of all possibilities and create a life vision that fulfills your mission as well as your greatest hopes and dreams.
Intuitive Living, Alan’s first book, remains the top seller of all of his books and has become a classic in the universal spirituality arena. The first book to fully integrate spiritual awakening with intuitive development, it brings together timeless wisdom of ancient traditions with practical spirituality for today. Alan leads the reader on a very personal journey of spiritual self-discovery—a journey free of dogma or attachment to any particular belief system. A ground-breaking book, it offers clear and practical tools for enlightened living, including over 50 exercises and meditations, in-depth chakra exploration, personal stories, and powerful techniques for developing and refining intuitive skills.
Center for Transformational Presence
The Center for Transformational Presence, based in Topsfield, Massachusetts, USA, is a discovery, learning, development, and transformation environment for individuals and organizations who are committed to making a significant difference in their world. Our soul mission, “We ignite and sustain Power-Love,” was inspired by these words from Dr. Martin Luther King:
Personal power, properly understood, is nothing but the ability to achieve purpose. There is nothing wrong with power if used correctly. One of the great problems of history is that the concepts of love and power have usually been contrasted as opposites—polar opposites—so that love is identified with resignation of power, and power with denial of love. What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic.
Transformational Presence, simply defined, is living in the dynamic alignment and balance between power and love. It’s about creating the optimal space for transformation to occur. This presence opens a door through which the greater potential can emerge, and allows you to become a steward for that potential to manifest. The more authentic and dynamic your presence, the more effective you can be in serving the positive transformation and evolution of our world.
In support of helping you develop your own authentic and dynamic transformational presence, the Center offers personal coaching as well as personal and professional development programs for leaders, coaches, and anyone committed to making a difference in the world.
