The Gift of Presence with Caroline Welch in conversation with Sharon Salzberg
We welcome Caroline Welch, author of The Gift of Presence: A Mindfulness Guide for Women, in conversation with Sharon Salzberg at Shakespeare & Co. on the Upper West Side.
The Gift of Presence guides readers in developing the innate capacities we all possess that will allow us to become more resilient and centered in our lives – even when life is throwing all that it has at us. Welch’s step-by-step guide, replete with real life stories from her interviews of a diverse group of over one hundred women, shows how to make mindfulness an integral part of our lives without placing something more on our already too long “to do” lists.
While there is no way around tending to our life’s roles and responsibilities, there is a way to bring more clarity and well-being into our lives so that we can move beyond surviving to thriving. The answer lies in our coming to learn and appreciate the importance of presence.
Caroline Welch is the CEO and Co-founder with Dr. Dan Siegel of the Mindsight Institute in Santa Monica, California. She began her mindfulness practice forty years ago while working in Japan as an English teacher for three years. Welch provides lectures and workshops to enhance well- being in our personal and professional lives.
Sharon Salzberg is a New York Times Best selling author and teacher of Buddhist meditation practices in the West.
