Creating Presence in Everyday Moments

Recently, I had a beautiful conversation with a client about presence.

One of her visions for herself is to have more presence in her daily life.

To be living life in the here and now, fully occupying her body rather than lost in thoughts and thinking or mindless scrolling.

Such an amazing vision, right?

Presence is such a wonderful gift and quite honestly does not come naturally for most of us.

It takes practice and constant reminding.

Cues to bring ourselves back.

During our conversation I was reminded of all of the beautiful Waldorf Teachers I know (many of whom are reading this). The early childhood teachers in particular.

Everyday, they lead 20ish kids through an array of daily activities.

Seamlessly guiding a gaggle of three year olds from outdoor play, to storytime, to snack and so on.

The sticky part of the process is the transitions- moving from one activity to the next.

Can you imagine?

Just like herding cats 😂.
