The Presence Process
by Michael Brown

The Presence Process

What was hard to explain has now been written. What was previously assumed to be a peaceful territory available only to “spiritual adepts” is now open to all. By simply reading this book, our perceptions are cleansed. By participating experientially in The Presence Process, our life experience can be healed.

In showing us how to step beyond our personal physical, mental, and emotional afflictions and addictions, The Presence Process takes a bold step into a new paradigm of healthcare by empowering us to facilitate ourselves into wholeness. It is an invitation to step beyond the victim and victor mentality perpetuated by the stories we tell ourselves of our wounded past and a future to be feared.

The lucid flow of this text magnetically and gently draws us into a transformational experience that automatically grounds us into the vibrant radiance of present moment awareness – where we find our liberation, our healing, our innate wisdom.  As such, The Presence Process enables us to take present moment awareness from a mental concept to an abiding experience.

Michael Brown

Until 1989 South African-born Michael Brown was living what he called “a blissfully unconscious life” as a music journalist. He then developed an acutely painful neurological condition called Horton’s Syndrome. After four years of suffering through conventional medical approaches he embarked on a quest to heal his experience. In 1993 this intention unfolded into a nine-year odyssey that took him beyond the borders of his home country. In San Francisco he studied Swedish Massage and Reiki Therapy. In the Arizona Desert he studied Breathwork, Shamanism and trained for four years as a Fire Chief in the Native American Peyote Church. He also crossed the border to Mexico and participated in ceremonies with the Huichol Indians.

As Michael’s quest to find relief unfolded, he began entering “present moment awareness”; a paradigm of heightened consciousness that appeared to be running parallel to the conventional and mundane world experience. He discovered that his repeated entry into this enlivened state of Being, which he accomplished through ceremonial practice and conscious breathing, resulted in a decrease of his own painful condition to the point that it subsided completely.

In the late 90s Michael began to chart a methodical pathway into present moment awareness with intent to develop a practical procedure that anyone, anywhere, could follow to initiate this experience for themselves. This procedure became known as The Presence Process. In 2002 Michael returned to South Africa and invited others to experience this inner journey. He discovered that as others embraced present moment awareness they too automatically experienced release from physical, mental, and emotional discomfort, including psychological disorders and addictions. To make this journey accessible to everyone Michael wrote The Presence Process: A Healing Journey Into Present Moment Awareness.

Michael Brown continues to live in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he shares his knowledge through personal facilitation. By means of this book, his healing contribution is available for all. Michael will be traveling extensively to speak and teach about The Presence Process.



The power of The Presence Process is directly related to the realized consciousness from which it flows. During the course of the last several weeks as I have recommended the book to a number of my patients I found many of them going through a profound awakening. People who have been stuck for a long time and people who just did not know how to get out of their problems have found themselves empowered with a new vision and a new conviction. Areas of life that have been off limits and unaccounted for have taken on a new significance and opened as if a secret passage for real movement. What seemed impossible to overcome has become a living possibility. This goes for so called emotional issues as well as very serious medical conditions such as ALS

In getting straight to the point I will simply state that The Presence Process by Michael Brown is the most profound book in its genre that I have ever experienced. The ideas presented, though deeply thought provoking and far-reaching, are surprisingly accessible through the author's skilful use of metaphor, word reversals and phonetic dissections that make the text uniquely engaging and easy to absorb.  In addition, if one commits to the 10 week The Presence Process procedure which is straightforward and simple to follow, real and lasting, life altering results can truely be experienced. As a counselor, life coach and meditation facilitator my intention, through extensive study over many years, has been aimed at dealing correctively with issues in the human condition that block or hinder one from reaching their fullest potential. But only since reading and facilitating myself through The Presence Process have I discovered that by merely being a companion to those clients willing to take on the 10 week The Presence Process for themselves, the most beneficial and sustainable results are achieved. The bottom line is there is great benefit for all of who are willing to become self-facilitators fully responsible for their life experience. And The Presence Process delivers the ultimate "How To" for doing just that!

TPP is awesome. I have recommended it to just the right person at least once a week. I am nearly done. I plan to repeat the process after a hiatus of some time so that the experience feels fresh. Michael has allowed the brilliance of Spirit to lay out a revolutionary process by which we can release ourselves to authentic living. What joy!

Dear Loves. I have come to a place in my understanding where I see through illusions and I know that all in my world is a out-manifestation of all I feel within. Whether conscious or not I can not be fooled my be. For all reflects all I AM -Part of my path is about being open to clear channels of resonance...Harmony becomes me when I merge with a similar frequency. Recently I picked up a book and I merged in Love with the One who brough this forth. I feel no separation in what he shares in this book. As I read what he shares I feel as though he and I are dancing to the most beautiful sounds of love.  His name is Michael Brown the book is "Prescence Process". I don't usually endorse books since I know all is within. Even my own (John and mine) books I keep to myself for the most part but this book.... as is my Course in Miracles Path.... is flawless. I wish to invite all that resonates with what I share here to pick up the book and feel what is shared....If it feels right...Enjoy the experience...

This book is born out of Michael Brown's attempt to deal with his own suffering from an acute neurologicla condition for which conventional medicine has no cure or treatment. Faced with the tyranny of pain, Brown developed a personal method of self-healing -- 'THE PRESENCE PROCESS', A healing journey into present moment awareness.  The contents of this book are inspiring and full of wisdom. What makes this book even more authentic isthat it is born out of Brown's journey to make sense of his condition and come to terms with delilitating bouts of pain. 'THE PRESENCE PROCESS' is laid out in ten sessions with simple-to-follow instructions through which one can transcend daily suffering, pain and addictions.  There are various other resources on 'awareness', but this book definitely stands out as it comes from the womb of personal pain and eventual liberation. Michael Brown has done a great job laying out is personal journey for others to follow. Through this book he shows that despite our circumstances, we still hold reasonable sway on the 'present moment' of life. Simple, inspiring, healing and transcending.
