Presence and Authenticity Are Verbs

(by Robert Schwarz, PsyD and Kathlyn Hendricks, PhD)

In our culture we often describe things as nouns or as having static properties when in fact they are active processes or verbs. Presence and authenticity are not things that you have or do not have. They are living interactions that occur within a person and between people simultaneously. You might want to ask yourself, “How do I create and maintain presence and authenticity in the moment with myself and others? What types of events tend to inhibit my ‘presencing’ activities?”

Watch this really interesting and enlivening conversation between myself and this year’s energy psychology conference keynote presenter Kathlyn Hendricks. Then let us know your reactions. Let’s see if we can get a great conversation going about this vital and important aspect of working with people and creating a great life.
