Description - The Gift of Presence: A mindfulness guide for women by Caroline Welch
A practical, user-friendly guide for women seeking focus and calm in the midst of life's storms.
Overwhelmed by the demands of family, work, and multiple responsibilities, many women find themselves feeling scattered and distracted. In this eye-opening book, co-founder and CEO of the Mindsight Institute Caroline Welch takes readers on a mindfulness journey to help them de-stress and cultivate inner peace. According to Welch, you do not need countless hours sitting in silence to be more present in your life - the key is to practice mindfulness wherever you are and whenever you can.
The Gift of Presence guides readers in developing four innate abilities we all possess that will allow us to become more resilient and centred in our lives - even when life is throwing all that it has at us-
Presence- the ability to remain firmly in the present moment - to be fully aware of what's happening as it's happening.
Purpose- the personal meaning that gets us going and gives direction to our lives.
Pivoting- an openness to change that allows you to switch direction if that is what is needed.
Pacing- the awareness that it is impossible to do everything we want or need to do all at once; the ability to take life one step at a time.
This life-changing book reveals that you already hold in your hands the keys to a more harmonious life - you simply need to look within.
'Caroline Welch's wise and timely book is a clarion call to all women, in the many roles we play, to bring more presence into our lives each day - not just through meditation, but in a variety of wise ways that lead to a richer, less stressful, more balanced life. Sharing her own experience from both Eastern and Western cultures, she offers a wealth of insight and sage advice about pacing, multitasking, relationships, and other essentials; and, as a result, readers will find themselves thinking in new ways about their own homelife, worklife, and the fine art of simply being in the world.'
-Diane Ackerman, New York Times bestselling author of The Zookeeper's Wife
'A powerful statement of how presence can change our lives. The Gift of Presence is a must if you are in a transformational period in your life. Caroline Welch has brilliantly laid out how to live intentionally rather than on autopilot.'
-Diego Perez aka Yung Pueblo, author of Inward
'This beautifully written book about presence invites women to connect with what is most meaningful in life. It offers practical tools for mindful living that anyone can adopt. It is infused with down-to-earth wisdom, relatable stories, and a look at the science behind it all. Highly recommended!'
-Diana Winston, director of Mindfulness Education at UCLA's Mindful Awareness Research Center, and author of The Little Book of Being
