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.

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.

Transformational Presence Quotes

We cannot transform anyone. But we can create an optimal space for those who are ready to transform. Our job is not to convince anyone of anything. Our job is to notice where the next opening for transformational service is emerging and be present for that service.
