The Gift of Presence and Deep Listening

Published on

Presence and deep listening have immense transformative power, allowing us to truly be with others in a way that is profoundly healing, intimate, connecting, and unifying. And it naturally stimulates awakening in others.

Reconnecting with Our True Nature: The Power of Presence

Bodhi Jeffreys Quote: Awake, your high frequency vibration radiates outwardly and stimulates the dormant awakening vibration in others.

People often share how being out in nature — a natural setting like a forest or the ocean — can help bring them into stillness. Into a state of presence.

What gets broadly overlooked is that we are nature as well — nature confused perhaps, but nature nonetheless.

And once we allow the morass of the mind's complexity and its compulsive thinking to drop away, our true nature of oneness and presence can be felt and known.

And as we realize this deeper truth and live as the radiant, still beings that we are, then those who may not yet have awoken to this essential truth within themselves will seek you out, recognizing you as a great wonder of the natural world — so that they, too, can remember who and what they truly are — and live more frequently, in presence.

The Art of Deep Listening: Beyond Words to Heartfelt Connection

Bodhi Jeffreys Quote: Deep listening, in presence, brings warmth to those around us. It is intimate, connecting, unifying. The healing effect of being in Oneness and feeling so heard, seen, known is a most precious gift.

And when you’re with others, remember that there is a great gift to being able to listen more deeply than one's normal listening state. To really be in a state of presence with someone.

To move beyond just listening to the words, to sensing the energy that the words carry. Sensing the energy that carries the words. Sensing the overall energy emanating from those we’re with. Aware, sensing.

The felt sense of awareness that’s prior to thought and interpretation. The direct experience of what's real.

From that space we are much closer to the whole of what is being expressed. Deeper than what gets filtered through the mind — interpreted, limited, distorted.

In presence, there’s no need to plan what to say because if something isn’t moving through us to express, presence is the expression. That’s what touches people.

Deep listening, in presence, brings warmth to those around us. It's intimate, connecting, unifying. The healing effect of being in Oneness and feeling so heard, seen, known is a most precious gift.

    Sofia Manning Best-Selling Author, Founder of Manning Inspire Copenhagen, Denmark

    I have met a lot of coaches and being a coach myself I have very high standards for what I think a great coach is.

  • What Bodhi does almost makes traditional coaching obsolete.

    Calvin Correli President & CEO, Creator of Simplero New York, New York

    I have used many coaches over the years, but Bodhi is one that I return to because he is simply in a class of his own. My experience has been that a lot of coaches can help you get to your goals faster, only to have you realize that those goals didn't actually fulfill you or give you what you thought they would. What Bodhi does, is help me heal and clear out those things that prevent me from going where I truly need and want to go, in the simplest possible way. What Bodhi does almost makes traditional coaching obsolete.

    Bodhi is an endless energy field of inspiration, purpose, clarity, truth, authenticity, compassion, joy, love and inner peace. The way he embodies and shares his profound wisdom of awakening is powerful and grounded, while gentle, light and constantly evolving. Bodhi is not only a teacher in the best possible sense of the word but a healer and “wise man” who can support you in tackling any personal or professional challenges.

  • I forget Bodhi is at the other side of the planet – he is truly with me when we work together.

    Lisbet Hjort Author, Awakening Mentor, Human Resources Manager Copenhagen, Denmark

    There is a before and an after regarding my work with Bodhi. Before working with Bodhi for many years I experienced a life with a lot of struggle, pain and resistance, both in my private and my business life. Today I experience a life with joy, love and peace – even amidst the challenges of life. I’ve never actually been with him in person – but I sense his energy, his warmth and love in our work. I forget Bodhi is at the other side of the planet – he is truly with me when we work together.

    Bodhi is a gift in the world – he can work on many levels which means that you can work and grow on many levels too. I will always be very grateful that we connected and I highly recommend Bodhi to everybody that really wants to live a life in freedom.
