The method of Loving Presence Embodiment - 4 Levels of Approach
1 - Inquiry Level: Primary focus on body
Inquire begins with noticing and a willingness to do so regardless of the content, be it positive or negative. This is an active path: the action of focusing your attention & turning your attention inward. When doing so, you may notice patterns occurring in your body-mind. To help you focus, patterns can also be noticed though a tool called ‘Polarity Filters’ (Polarity meaning 2 'poles' bound together in a union...can't have one without the other!)...examples: pleasure/pain, expansion/contraction, open/closed, flow/stagnation, attraction/repulsion, stimulation/sedation, attachment/aversion, etc. You can then focus mindful attention on the experience of your patterns as you explore them deeper through the use of the filters (or in your own way).
2 - Acceptance Level: Primary focus on Feelings
Whatever you notice you then accept. Acceptance means acknowledging that an experience is actually occurring, regardless of like or dislike. This is a passive path of allowing your experiences and those of others to occur without judgment. It does not mean condoning harmful experiences, but accepting what is occurring with awareness and human dignity. The more you accept, the more you begin to experience the Love that is at your core, the importance of all your relationships & the deep bonds with family & friends. Acceptance relates to connection and community, eventually accepting others as yourself. Even at this level, you may begin to notice glimpses of Love present within, beneath and/or around your experiences. Love is the backdrop which allows all of your experiences to occur.
3 - Transformation Level: Primary focus on Mind
In Level 3 you enter into the very deep structures of your Body-Mind, delving into the hidden and unseen forces at work in your experiences. This is an active path of change for de-conditioning that which no longer serves you. It is at this level that deep and lasting change can occur. With the use of “Transformational Tools” for body and mind, you can gradually untangle from limiting patterns & transform your old experiences into new energies for re-investment into Life and Love.

4 - Transcendence Level: Primary focus on Spirit
When you Transcend, you move beyond known experiences and into the greater space of Love within, between and around you. This is a passive surrender of letting go into Love. This Love defies all definition and explanation, remaining always a complete and utter mystery. It can be called by many names: Loving Presence, Oneness, Source, God, Christ, Buddha, Allah, Krishna, Divine, Great Spirit, Singularity, The Unified Field, The Void, The Tao, Nothingness, Emptiness, Etc. It is a quiet, still, simple and peaceful experience within you...essentially not much seems to happen yet paradoxically all is included and integrated! It is also a portal whereby grace, providence and miracles can operate in your life as well as subtle body awakenings, but not by any means of controlling. It can never be forced, only prayed for with relaxation and contemplation. The path toward this Love is approached through a paradoxical self-surrender/Self-affirmation. One can only be open and receptive to its mystery as the Loving Presence within you and within everyone else as well!
