Presence and Deep Listening

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.  ~ Bodhi Jeffreys

There’s 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.

  • I’m thankful for your clarity and presence and for how much peace it has brought into my life.

    Violet Lehrer Owner, Clarity Path Coaching Carlsbad, California

    Bodhi, I woke up flooded with gratitude for you today — your essence, your teaching, your energy, your sweet soft voice, your non-judgment. Your ability to have integrated that and not just teach it is inspiring to me. I’m thankful for your clarity and presence and for how much peace it has brought into my life. I’m thankful that the kids have learned the meaning of resistance and trigger.

    I’m thankful for the hundred times I’ve heard your voice saying “the truth and essence of who we are is love” and that I can hear that voice in my head louder than the childhood “you’re not good enough”. I’ve thankful for the healing you’ve guided me on. I’m thankful that you have shown me (and Matt) the path to our hearts. I’m thankful for all the moments of freedom and joy that are in my life because I am not in resistance. You have made a profound difference in my life.
