Unwrapping Presence this Christmas

What thoughts and emotions come to mind for you this Christmas?

Busy shopping centres? Decorations, colour and music? Big gatherings with family and friends? Time off from work? Fitting in all the engagements? What do I buy, cook, wear or say? Thinking of those who are no longer with us? Staying within the budget? Backyard cricket? The magic of Santa? How can I help others? Smiles, anticipation and laughter? Ripping open presents?

For most people it would be a combination of all, some or more of these types of thoughts and emotions over this holiday season. We can easily get caught up in the busyness, to do lists and perceived expectations, meaning we miss out on giving and receiving the best present of all, the connection that is experienced through being truly present. No new gadget wrapped under the tree can compare to genuine and authentic presence, all those experiences we have when we and others show up completely in the moment, providing opportunities to grow our awareness and appreciation of what’s really important and foster memories that last a lifetime.

So what will unwrapping presence this Christmas look like for you?

Wishing everyone a connection filled Christmas and a fantastic start to 2014. Thank you for exploring the possibilities, discovering your potential and acting authentically along the journey with us this year, I look forward to sharing more with you all in the new year.

All the best,
