Yes, you can learn to use it, apply it, and even teach it. Download a quick summary here.

OPEN AWARENESS is a unique state of mind and being that includes integration of:

  • A calm and receptive state applied to everyday life
  • Inner awareness (thoughts, emotions, memories, experiences, mental objects)
  • Outer awareness (senses, perceptions)
  • Somatic awareness (the physical body)
  • Interconnection (other people, the environment, Everything Else)

OPEN AWARENESS is useful for:

  • Increasing productivity and concentration
  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Improving interpersonal and communication skills
  • Exploration of the Self, Self-Growth & Connection to the spiritual and the transpersonal
  • Holding the Space when working with clients and colleagues

The practice of OA can be either or both secular (mind expanding – increasing productivity, improving quality of concentration, interpersonal skills) or non-secular (spiritual, transpersonal), depending on the context in which it is applied.

The profound but simple techniques and processes of OPEN AWARENESS can be easily taught though experiential learning, guided processes, ongoing resources and material, continuing practice, and a supportive coach

Open Awareness can be life changing!

OPEN AWARENESS is ideal for:
