How can we develop our presence? This book presents a new dimension of workingwith people with a base in meditation. This book aims on developing our naturalhealing capacity through meeting our inner being, our authentic self, the meditativequality within, the inner source of love, truth and wholeness.The underlying theme of the book is to learn how to be with our self and with another  person in meditation, in a quality of watchful awareness, acceptance and relaxation. Itis about developing a meditative presence and quality, to develop the inner “yes”-quality, the inner source of healing and wholeness.Meditation is to study our inner world. Meditation is the way to develop the presence,which is the base for healing– and therapeutic work.

It is about rediscovering our original face.One of my student - who participated in a 1-year seminar on the topic “Meditationand Creativity”, which I conducted once a week in Stockholm – described what shelearnt during the seminar by saying that she discovered a deeper part of herself,which she did not know existed before. She says: “First I came in contact with all thefeelings and everything that I did not want to listen to and know about myself. Then Icame in contact with a deeper part of myself. I began to come in contact with aninner silence and calm that I did not know existed before. The perspective owitnessing thoughts and feelings, instead of being identified with them, also created adeeper contact with my real self and gave my life a new meaning. ”Meditation is the way to develop our natural healing capacity - but not meditation as
