Presence – A Handbook for Enlightened Living” is a book that is more than just a read, it is a powerful and transformational journey into the heart of you. Its words will guide and help free you from debilitating fears, constricting circumstances and negative conditioning of your past.
“Presence” will open you up to the immense power and potential already present within you. This in turn will allow you to begin to create a more fulfilling, joyful and peaceful experience of life. Below is an extract from the the book called “Life is Beautiful”.
The beauty of life is always present, and is present for all to see.
If you disagree with this, it may be that you are focusing on what you consider to be wrong in your life.
Regardless of what you focus upon, there is a vast array of beauty and you only have to look to see.
The sky is always above us, in all its expansive ever-changing magnificence.
The sun shines its life-giving warmth and light. The birds fly, sing and inspire us. We are separated from the trees and the natural world by nothing but a thought.
It is only a thought that keeps you from experiencing life.
A single thought prevents you from seeing that here, in this present moment, life continues to experience itself in everything and as everything – life is beautiful.
So come back now to that place before thought, in between thoughts. See from the quietness of your essence, see the beauty of all that is right here with you.
There is something very precious, very beautiful, about seeing without believing any thoughts that may arise about what you are seeing.
Taking a deep breath in and feeling your own aliveness in this very moment is beautiful.
Breathing deeply of the perfume of a rose, or enjoying the taste of a favoured fruit is beautiful.
For some, walking barefoot in the forest, bathing in the ocean or lying under the stars is beautiful.
Beauty is anything that inspires, softens or delights you.
Each moment is calling for your Presence, inviting you to partake and immerse yourself in the beautiful offering that is life.
Through the following pages, offered with Lightness and Grace, Sa offers us the opportunity to peer through the eyes of Awakening by showing portals that lead back into our own true identity, to the one that peers through the eyes of all that lives and breathes.
By investigating first, what holds us captive and then offering a way back into our own innate freedom, every page invites the reader to contemplate and explore just how very close and immediate Awakening actually is. Whether it be asking the Trees how to be, through to recognising the perfection that is already right here, her reflections constantly and consistently gently nudge the reader back into their own true nature as Presence Itself.
Sa has the ability to pick a moment and investigate through a keen mind and awakened heart, just what it is offering. She knows that every moment is sacred, thus being another unique opportunity to be transported back into who and what we truly are. She takes a normal, everyday activity or situation such as work or suffering and scratches the surface to begin to shine a light on just what makes it tick. And, as we journey through her own encounter with each moment, she awakens something fresh and new within ourselves.
Sa’s ability to access both her Inner Child and her Inner Teacher, makes this book a beautiful celebration of all things that open the heart and bring us right to the very doorway of pure presence in the realization that each moment always offers its own wisdom and its own blessing. Each page offers a rare and precious insight, leading us always back to the One that is always present, always vast, always clear – that One that is looking out and in, forever at peace and without limits.
Through her words, we are visited by a loving heart, always offering a view that uplifts and awakens. And through her loving heart we are given direct access to our own. This is Sa’s gift.
This book is a joy to read, a gift to be savoured as you too awaken to the Presence that is always right here, right now. In her own words: “Be still and weave yourself deeply into where you stand. This moment holds all the nourishment you need.”
May you discover your ever-present freedom.

The beauty of Sa Silvano”s new book “Presence” is that it’s an experiential read, which means that as you read through the Chapter themes, an opportunity presents to enter into the spaciousness of presence that Sa writes about. As you read further, you begin to feel into and deepen the experience of the art of presence.
It’s a book that offers the reader a doorway through which one can understand the presence that exists within all of us, as well as practical strategies to enter more fully into the experience. For example, when you read the words, ” Be present. Soften into the moment”, you find your body softening and an increasing awareness of your own state of presence.
The gift from this special book is the lingering experience of being present long after the book is finished. Sa”s book is an important contribution for all those seeking a freedom from the mind to discover more fully the beauty of what is within us and others.

“Sa’s new book “Presence” illuminates a pathway for us and guides us to live fully in this moment.
Sa exposes the stories and illusions we have created, and peels back the layers, step by step to reveal presence. Her voice is strong as she speaks the truth and yet, she gently pulls the reader back time and time again to show us what we keep avoiding; that this moment in all its fullness and perfection, is all there is.”

I am really loving your book Sa, I’ve been reading it slowly so I can sit with each entry and let it sink into my being.
It is beautifully written and every sentence is an invitation to go deeper into Presence. So thank you for your words of wisdom and insight.
“I had only ever edited fiction before and, from an editor’s perspective, didn’t really understand what Sa meant by “Presence”. Of course I knew what the word meant, but realised there was obviously more to it than just a word.
At the time I was editing Sa’s book I was going through a tough few weeks personally. Then I realised that I was actually drawing on what I had read to help me not only cope, but sail through that time and come out feeling refreshed.
Soon after I finished editing, I had the opportunity to share what I had learned from Sa’s book with a dear friend. As I spoke with her I actually got goose bumps as the words from the book flowed from me and my friend’s face lit up. She understood.
I now understand what “Presence” means.”
