Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through her popular interactive Dharma Dialogues ("dharma meaning "truth" or "the way"), Catherine Ingram has helped thousands of students in their quest for awakening by encouraging them to give up the quest and let their own "heart intelligence" guide them in life. Through her work, Ingram has found that most people are imbued with "passionate presence," but often overlook it because they are searching for something more dramatic elsewhere.

In this book, she invites readers to simply to relax into their own passionate presence and the innate awakened qualities that come with this relaxation: Silence, Tenderness, Discernment, Embodiment, Authenticity, Delight, and Wonder. With illuminating anecdotes and personal reflections, she describes the seven traits, imparting a sense of the mystery of the world through direct experience, rather than through expounding any particular belief or tradition.

Passionate Presence takes us on a heart journey that is an immediate experience of seven awakened qualities, speaking directly to the inherent wisdom within each of us. Inspiring and profound, it is a sojourn into the timeless wisdom secretly known by all.

Review:

"In this thoughtful and clearly written exploration, Ingram details ways to achieve all her stated qualities of heightened awareness at length from a humanistic/Buddhist perspective." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A reminder to the heart of sacred presence. Wise, tender, simple — Passionate Presence reads like a sigh of relaxation." Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart
