APPROACH: PRESENCE THERAPY
Most people have heard the phrase: “I think, therefore, I AM.” It is a core societal belief. Originally uttered by a Fourteenth Century French philosopher Rene Descartes, it points to the idea that the mind is our core identity. Do you believe your mind is you?
Presence Therapy (PT) proposes that the mind is not who we are but is something we have. It is a powerful instrument, but because we, as a society, believe our mental process is our true identity, we are not trained in its correct use. We have given our identity away to a powerful tool that now enslaves us, holds us addicted to thinking.
The intention of PT is to develop a new relationship to this powerful, hence dangerous, instrument. To learn to use it correctly and uncover its true potential, causing symptoms like depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, substance abuse and many others to diminish or completely vanish through developing a unified state of consciousness.
