‘If you act powerfully, you will begin to think powerfully’. Of je nu in gesprek gaat met twee personen of een presentatie moet houden voor een volle zaal: we komen iedere dag sociale uitdagingen tegen die we aan moeten gaan om vooruit te komen, zowel privé als zakelijk. In Presence gaat Amy Cuddy in op de wetenschappelijke inzichten achter vele fascinerende verbindingen tussen lichaam en geest. Ze geeft tips hoe we deze wetenschap kunnen gebruiken om op moeilijke momenten of in stresssituaties zelfverzekerder en krachtiger te kunnen optreden. Amy Cuddy liep op 19-jarige leeftijd ernstig hoofdletsel op. Medici betwijfelden of ze ooit haar mentale capaciteit terug zou krijgen en haar opleiding af zou kunnen maken. Inmiddels is zij sociaal psycholoog, professor en onderzoeker op Harvard Business School.

Amy Cuddy

Don't fake it till you make it, fake it until you become it - the essential guide to improving your body language. How can we be our strongest selves in life's most challenging situations? We often approach these situations - job interviews, difficult conversations, speaking up for ourselves - with anxiety and leave them with regret. Moments that require us to be genuine and powerful instead cause us to feel phoney and powerless, preventing us from being our best selves. Harvard professor Amy Cuddy shows us we need to stop worrying about the impression we're making on others, and instead change the impression we're making on ourselves. Cutting-edge science reveals that if we adopt behaviours reflecting power and strength, we liberate ourselves from the fears and doubts that obstruct us. By redirecting our thoughts, actions, and even physiology, we free ourselves to be our best. Amy Cuddy galvanised viewers around the world with her TED talk on 'power poses'. Now she explains the science underlying these and many other fascinating body-mind effects, and teaches us how to use this science to become self-assured in high-pressure moments. Impassioned, beautifully researched, and accessible, PRESENCE is filled with stories of individuals facing real obstacles, and succeeding against the odds. Every reader will learn how to approach stress-filled challenges without fear and leave them without regret.

This relationship exists regardless of gender, professional position, or cultural background. Poses and posture effect how we feel, think about ourselves, make us more likely to assert ourselves, seize opportunities, increases feelings of physical strength. Power poses toughen you to physical pain, allowing us to achieve presence during our biggest challenges. This also works mentally, just by picturing a Wonder Woman or Starfish Up pose in our minds.

Mindfulness and one of the roads to it, meditation, have become increasingly popular as a way to promote health and well-being. Meditation can create mindfulness in daily life, which becomes an ingrained habit if applied consistently-it can boost immune function; lower levels of stress, anxiety, or depression; lift affect; regulate emotion more easily; and make you happier. Presence reviews how meditation calms the body and what goes on inside the brain during meditation-how it impacts control over attention, awareness of the body, and the experience of self. It examines how meditation leaves telltale lasting traces in brain structure, and how it impacts important areas of life such as well-being, stress, and health. In addition, it examines how mindfulness can be useful as therapy, alleviating depression, anxiety, worry, and pain. A final chapter provides advice on how to meditate and practice mindfulness in a scientifically sound way, based on what we know about how meditation works. Over the last decade, research on these beneficial effects has boomed in the cognitive and behavioral psychology and neuroscience literature, and Presence provides an overview of this research that is thorough and accessible for the curious meditator, seasoned or beginner, as well as for students and practitioners of contemplative science and related fields.

Death comes as an uninvited interruption. The disruption forces individuals to abandon regular routines so they can deal with urgent concerns, such as caring for a dead body, planning a funeral, and beginning the journey through grief. In days clouded by sorrow, pastors embody the Good Shepherd who walks through the valley with those who mourn. Presence: A Pastor's Guide to Funerals begins with a story about Pastor Jamie who recently graduated from seminary. In just the second week as a pastor, Jamie recognizes the nuances of ministry not evident in a classroom as he steps alongside a family mourning the death of its matriarch. This fictional account sets the context for the remainder of the book. Presence intentionally begins with biblical theologies of death, dying, and the funeral service. Those theological tenets are then applied to the practice of bereavement ministry. By considering the ways that God is made manifest in seasons of sadness, pastors discover guidance for the incarnational ministry of presence. The book concludes with a discussion of formative practices that aid in the development of the being and doing of pastoral ministry when people grieve. With the ministry of presence, the pastor as a person provides deep comfort when words may seem shallow. Presence: A Pastor's Guide to Funerals explores bereavement ministry by helping pastors apply their theological convictions to particular situations. Lifelong ministry practitioners will appreciate the reminder of the theological foundation that undergirds ministry actions. New pastors will find value in the "quick start" hints found in the practical applications. Presence provides numerous examples of the significant role played by pastors through which God comforts those walking in the shadows of death.

Presence is an intimate look at the development of a new theory about change and learning. In wide-ranging conversations held over a year and a half, organizational learning pioneers Peter Senge, C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, and Betty Sue Flowers explored the nature of transformational change—how it arises, and the fresh possibilities it offers a world dangerously out of balance. The book introduces the idea of “presence”—a concept borrowed from the natural world that the whole is entirely present in any of its parts—to the worlds of business, education, government, and leadership. Too often, the authors found, we remain stuck in old patterns of seeing and acting. By encouraging deeper levels of learning, we create an awareness of the larger whole, leading to actions that can help to shape its evolution and our future. Drawing on the wisdom and experience of 150 scientists, social leaders, and entrepreneurs, including Brian Arthur, Rupert Sheldrake, Buckminster Fuller, Lao Tzu, and Carl Jung, Presence is both revolutionary in its exploration and hopeful in its message. This astonishing and completely original work goes on to define the capabilities that underlie our ability to see, sense, and realize new possibilities—in ourselves, in our institutions and organizations, and in society itself.

Your self, aware presence, knows no resistance to any appearance and, as such, is happiness itself; like the empty space of a room it cannot be disturbed and is, therefore, peace itself; like this page, it is intimately one with whatever appears on it and is thus love itself; and like water that is not affected by the shape of a wave, it is pure freedom. Causeless joy, imperturbable peace, love that knows no opposite and freedom at the heart of all experience....this is your ever-present nature under all circumstances. Rupert Spira Presence is a profound and luminous book with great power and is obviously the fruit of many years of contemplation. These two volumes together are a relentless and utterly thorough examination of the nature of experience, exploring every square centimeter of the territory with absolute excellence and ruthlessly precise analysis. Their astuteness and clarity will be extremely exciting to those readers who are ready for the next steps in lifting the veil of separation and I suspect it will become a spiritual classic that readers will savour slowly and return to again and again.

Radical and hopeful -- Presence synthesises cutting-edge thinking, firsthand knowledge and ancient wisdom Presence: Human Purpose and the Field of the Future gives the reader an intimate look at the development of a new theory about change and learning. A book built around a series of wide-ranging conversations over a year and a half, Senge, Scharmer, Jaworski, and Flowers explore their own experiences and those of one hundred and fifty scientists and social and business entrepreneurs in an effort to explain how profound collective change occurs. Their journey of discovery articulates a new way of seeing the world, and of understanding our part in creating it -- as it is and as it might be. Presence explores the living fields that connect us to one another, to life more broadly, and, potentially, to what is "seeking to emerge." Seven capacities underlie our ability to see, sense, and realize new possibilities. Developing these capacities accesses a deeper level of learning that is the key to creating change that services the whole -- ourselves, our organizations and the communities of which we are a part.

Presence reconsiders the notion of 'presence' in objects. The first book to address the issue directly, it contains a series of case studies covering a broad geographical and chronological range from ancient Greece and the Incas to industrial America and contemporary India, as well as examples from the canon of western European art. The studies reveal the widespread evidence for this striking form of response and allow readers to see how 'presence' is evoked and either embraced or repressed in differing historical and cultural contexts.

All that is known is experiencing, and experiencing is not divided into one part (an inside self) that experiences and another part (an outside object, other, or world) that is experienced. Experiencing is seamless and intimate, made of knowing or awareness alone. This intimacy, in which there is no room for selves, objects, or others, is love itself. It lies at the heart of all experience, completely available under all circumstances."

Ranjan Ghosh,Ethan Kleinberg

The philosophy of “presence” seeks to challenge current understandings of meaning and understanding. One can trace its origins back to Vico, Dilthey, and Heidegger, though its more immediate exponents include Jean-Luc Nancy, Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht, and such contemporary philosophers of history as Frank Ankersmit and Eelco Runia. The theoretical paradigm of presence conveys how the past is literally with us in the present in significant and material ways: Things we cannot touch nonetheless touch us. This makes presence a post-linguistic or post-discursive theory that challenges current understandings of “meaning” and “interpretation.” Presence provides an overview of the concept and surveys both its weaknesses and its possible uses. In this book, Ethan Kleinberg and Ranjan Ghosh bring together an interdisciplinary group of contributors to explore the possibilities and limitations of presence from a variety of perspectives—history, sociology, literature, cultural theory, media studies, photography, memory, and political theory. The book features critical engagements with the presence paradigm within intellectual history, literary criticism, and the philosophy of history. In three original case studies, presence illuminates the relationships among photography, the past, memory, and the Other. What these diverse but overlapping essays have in common is a shared commitment to investigate the attempt to reconnect meaning with something “real” and to push the paradigm of presence beyond its current uses. The volume is thus an important intervention in the most fundamental debates within the humanities today.

Crane, University of Arizona; Ranjan Ghosh, University of North Bengal; Suman Gupta, Open University Ethan Kleinberg, Wesleyan University; John Michael, University of Rochester; Vincent P.

This six-week small group study, the fifth in the Platform Series, will explore the facets of God's presence in our lives. Using Exodus 32-34 as a scriptural context, J.D. Greear takes illustrations from Moses' interaction with the Lord and drives home the realities of God's presence, absence, and power. God reveals to Moses all the ways He is going to bless Israel. But it is God's presence that Moses most desires. During the course of this study, small groups will have the opportunity to examine the yearning of their own hearts and determine if what they long for is God's blessing or His presence. Presence is part of The Platform Series, a LifeWay resource featuring compelling video sermons straight from the church platforms of today's most influential pastors.(6 sessions)

J. Alexander Sider,Isaac S. Villegas

As God's eternal life flows through us, we learn to let go of our pretensions of control and rest into the new life offered in Jesus Christ. This book is an invitation for you to become nonresistant to this movement of God's love for you and the world. Through a variety of sermons and meditations, Sider and Villegas bear witness to a grace that disarms our guardedness and makes room for us to fall into the love of God. Preaching becomes a dispossessive practice, as each person is invited to give and receive God's transforming power. The proclamation of the gospel, Villegas and Sider say, should display the priesthood of all believers. Thus, the call to preach belongs to the whole congregation and its conversation rather than to the lone preacher and her (or his) sermon. Presence: Giving and Receiving God draws on the Mennonite tradition of the Zeugnis ("conversation") to explore how the preached Word echoes through all of our voices.
