The Art of Listening and Presence Online
"The human soul doesn’t want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed — to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is. When we make that kind of deep bow to the soul of a suffering person, our respect reinforces the soul’s healing resources, the only resources that can help the sufferer make it through." - Parker Palmer

"I enjoyed the embodied awareness course very much and found great value in it. I can see how important it is to have the skills of listening with presence already embodied within the student before they even start the core practices course. I am very glad I did embodied awareness first , as I now feel I can go into the core practices course with greater understanding and a personal practice established of listening with presence, and so am ready to expand on my skills and understanding of Craniosacral therapy. Thank you." - Linda
“The safety, integrity and kindness of the space Michael and all the attendees created in the course was beautiful and I came away feeling truly in my body for the first time in my life. I am now able to really listen to my family, my friends and my clients and offer the kind of presence and support they deserve. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be with those I love on a deeper level.” – Elissa
