the Presence Point

Sarah Lipton has been a compassionate and sharp mentor to me. She can guide people into their own wisdom with genuine friendly leadership. Her sunny disposition allowed me to hear her advice even when I wasn’t particularly open. The best advice I received from her was: “You have to let things fall apart.” On that occasion, she gave me permission to feel where I was and accept my experience. Her technique of bringing mindfulness of the body into daily life has uplifted some grey situations for me, enabling me to have more attention in my life, and at the same time experiencing the brilliance of my surroundings.
