The book : Full-Presence Meditation – The Seven Ways to Access Human Warmth
To complete your journey, you can read the book ‘Full-Presence Meditation® – The Seven Ways to Access Human Warmth’, which presents meditation in general; the notion of Full Presence as a plenitude to be achieved; the process of discovery of Full-Presence Meditation® and of the inner movement; the seven ways to access human warmth; and the processes and foundations of Full-Presence Meditation®.
Coaching sessions (online or in-presence)
We will start the program by meeting you online during a virtual lesson to support you on your path. You will experience a meditation and receive instructions on how to follow the meditations online, write your journal and use the supports provided on the platform.
Following this, you will have each week a 90-minutes meeting during which the guide will begin by facilitating a meditation. This introspective time will be followed by a presentation of the theme of the week and there will then be time for you to interact by asking questions or sharing what you have experienced. Finally, you will receive instructions for the following week’s program.

Accessing the digital platform and the meditations’ audio files
Following your registration, you will receive a user name to be able to create a password to access the platform. There you will find directions on the use of the platform, your user manual and every week you will have access to new online meditations for your practice, at the pace recommended by the program as explained by the facilitator. Videos and written material will allow you to explore the theme of the week further.
To accompany you on the program, you will have a PDF format manual presenting the step-by-step process applied to the optimization of self-esteem, benevolence and anxiety management. As you progress with your daily practice, it will allow you to record the strong points of your experiences and to become aware by contrast of your perceptual, relational, reflective and behavioural progress with regards to self-esteem, benevolence, human warmth and anxiety
Your experience journal
Once a week, you will be asked to complete your experience journal online. It takes the form of a table with elements to reflect on and empty boxes in which you can write your lived experience and the thoughts and learning that have been triggered by the experience of the meditation. These can be used as the basis for sharing during the online sessions.
