  Understanding Presence

Most of us have a sense of ourselves as a person, often in our heads, that has thoughts. feelings, sensations, separate from other people.  When we begin to perceive ourselves and the world from a broader, subtler view, new insight and awareness opens to a calm ever-present vibrant place of  oneness, where we can rest.  Presence is also the awareness of a compassionate beingness in and around us.
