To explore and practice the art of being fully present, understanding how this state of awareness can diminish the ego's control and enhance our connection to our true self.

The ego thrives on dwelling in the past and projecting into the future, often leading us away from the richness of the present moment. Presence, or being fully engaged with the here and now, is a powerful state that can weaken the ego's influence, opening us up to a deeper sense of peace and authenticity. This lesson focuses on the power of presence and offers practices to cultivate this essential quality.
