Title About

When spirit moves us deeply we have discovered the joy and freedom of responding - yes!... and following. So it is we found ourselves in the early summer of 2006 relocating the Center to Austintown, OH. Since 1989 we have been following Inner Guidance and with each awareness - large or small - we have been constantly amazed with the unfolding of this Center's outreach and our spiritual growth. Nestled in the heart of Austintown on a small lake, we begin yet another phase of planetary service work. This warm soft home with plenty of natural light and space is a beacon to "come home" to the simplicity of our true nature.

The Conscious Living and Healing Center offers private sessions, workshops, study groups, and an array of healthy living activities. Facilitators are also available to bring our offerings: private sessions, programs, workshops and intensive weekends to your area. General information on hosting our facilitators for a life altering experience is available. Please email us at: ca@livingthepresence.org.

Meet our Facilitators
Having experienced the freedom and joy of living in the present moment, our facilitators are led to share this experience with others as part of their planetary service. With the ongoing release of old thought patterns and identification with the thinking mind in their own lives, they live and express the peace, joy and freedom available to each of us. These planetary servers are available on an unending basis to aid and uphold others through ongoing expansion in consciousness. They are open to bring Conscious Awareness offerings to your area.
