Presensification

Invok

 

The biggest obstacle to success for any of us is fragmentation. Fragmentation is the existence of various disconnected parts inside us, most of the times working against each other. Often these parts act in an unconscious way, but they create lots of suffering, blocking full achievement of what we desire.

 

Invok

 

Presensification is the process by which these opposing parts come into alignment and transform. To put it simply, this term comes from the concept of presence: being 100% here and now, conscious of everything related to the moment, everything that really matters, and positively making choices from this consciousness. It means to be 100% connected to your purpose and open for what’s new.

Presensification unifies Mindful techniques, Self-Knowledge, Ethics and Purpose.
