A beautifully elusive term we give to an all encompassing feeling, thought, and thing.  Presence as a gift. Presence as the in between, the no-man’s land, the grey area of time and space. Stuck between the past and the future. Seeding growth towards the above and rooting towards the below. Can we truly harness it, understand it, and benefit from it? Just like the ‘spiritual technologies’ of love, belief, and curiosity, is presence something we can cultivate for improved mental health?

Here is a collective set of golden nuggets we wanted to provide everyone from our 2.0 Mindshare Experience on Sunday, May 29th. Thank you to our incredible presenters for their time, energy, and expertise. This is just a sample of what we experienced that day. We hope to share this method of peer to peer coaching globally, and hope you will continue to support this form of wellness-based experiential education.

‘Presence’ is the space between you and your thoughts. Space that allows the time to breath and then act instead of react and elevate situations instead of escalate them.

A next level understanding to ‘Presence’ is found in the diagram below. Take your time to unpack this ;)

“We may need to re-define what it means to have a Meditative Practice.”

Your meditative practice re-vamp can start by plunging into the cold with this podcast or a listen to his recent podcast interview about living in the present versus living for long-term goals.

“If our ability to stay present is challenged regularly know that neuroplasticity could be playing a part in that challenge. Heal your brain to strengthen your ability to stay present.

I believe that if people aren’t healing from chronic health issues and they’ve experienced trauma that the healing might lie in using neuroplasticity to reprogram the body. I think people and practitioners need to be talking more about how to heal the organ that controls everything in the body versus simply address the organs that are affected by the brain not functioning properly.”

JANEY BROWN

Janey seriously blew our minds. Her rich story, skilset, and ambition to share is unlike anyone we’ve met in our organization’s 8-year history. We asked our founder Julian Ho what golden nugget he took away from Janey’s talk and he said, “you can be happy and still feel the fear, you can be successful and still feel the fear, you can choose to fight fear or you can simply feel the fear, and use it to fuel you.”

Check out Janey’s Fearce Academy

"The goal of Fearce Academy is to provide the holistic wellness I lacked coming up in the entertainment industry, especially around mindset and fear. In the world of performance, I was taught that fear is a weakness, but after years of fighting fears and losing, it's clear now that it’s our fears that make us fierce.”

FEARS + FIERCE = FEARCE

BRANDON RYNKA

“10 Unconventional Techniques to Mental Clarity and Optimal Performance” – Tips on How to apply

For this post, we picked our favorite from Brandon’s Top 10 Techniques, because it speaks to our 2.0 ‘growing better together’ principle.
As a surprise and delight, we will be featuring all of them in a separate blog post!!! WOAHHH!!! YAY! Thanks BR!!!!

“Challenge Yourself”

Surround yourself with intelligent, strong, ambitious people. Ideally, put yourself in environments where you’re not the best in the room at that given skill set. If you want to be a better runner, join a running group with elite runners. If you want to be tougher, join an MMA gym, and train with incredible individuals. If you want to gather motivation, stimulation, education, go to workshops, seminars and events that are built around connection, education and positivity. Every day find ways to put yourself in an uncomfortable place, both physically and mentally. The only way to build true authentic resilience is by overcoming challenges daily and programming yourself to step up to the challenge regardless of how you’re feeling. Eventually this mindset will become habitual.

DEEPIKA MALIK

Design thinking has a human-centered core. It encourages organizations to focus on the people they're creating for, which leads to better products, services, and internal processes. When you sit down to create a solution for a business need, the first question should always be what's the human need behind it? - Ideo U

We asked our founder to share his take away from Deepika’s talk on Design Thinking, he replied … “I really enjoyed the ‘How might I’ thought experiment, and enjoyed it even more as a group activity. I asked myself, how might I create a platform for the personal growth of professionals that offers more than just value …. sustainable value? And that prompt funneled me to use empathy to redirect the question to myself…. what would I want from a platform that offers such deeply immersive and intimate experiences, how do I better define what it is that I need?, who should I brainstorm with to ideate these needs?, where can we prototype these ideas and channel them into a laboratory to test, yield, and drive data and results?” And as above, so below:
