I can just "be"

By Linda H.

I came to Deepening Presence® as a 51 yr. old angry, overwhelmed child. I saw the world in my bubble, (i.e., working diligently to be perfect and never have shame). I was tired. After working with Doug for one year, I learned about humanity’s basic coping mechanisms fight/flight/freeze and how that impacted my world. In the beginning,  I was in survival mode-every single minute, of every single day. With awareness and time, I have moved to having blocks of thriving time. Time where pressures of the world are not mine and I can just ‘be’. Doug’s classes have given me a HUGE bag full of coping tricks at the ready and I am thankful!
