About Your Choosing Presence Guides
For more than thirty years Jim Heaney has been on a spiritual journey which led him to the practice of presence. A pivotal event in Jim’s life came in 1997 when he attend a Men’s Rites of Passage. During this experience, he awakened to the fact that he was not always present. Jim realized he needed to silence the noise and to engage his life at a more profound level.
Today Jim is semi-retired and has been practicing presence for more than twenty years. He also volunteers and teaches the practice of presence in prisons. More recently, Jim wrote Choosing Presence and developed the Practicing Presence App to help the many people who suffer daily, while feeling alone and isolated.
