About Us

Live in the Present is an educational institution built for the 21st century.

Our primary concern is the happiness and well being of others. We exist to inspire great things of great people.

We’re not an institution in any traditional sense. We have no building. No school. No real teachers, as such. Our school is all around you. Our teachers are every person that you have ever met and will ever meet.

In the coming months and years we will be releasing various products that are designed to help you to live a better life. Books, audio recordings, apps and who knows what else. There’s never been a better time to learn. Age is no restriction.

Live in the Present has been set up by three people:

Live in the Present – The Book

This is our first product. It’s the cornerstone of all of the work we’ve done so far, and the foundation of that will follow.

The book started life as a course that Sean Orford ran between 2008 and 2010. The course, ‘10 Steps to Change your Life, Forever!’ was attended by over 200 people.

Our goal when we set up LITP was to spread the message of the course (namely, ‘Let Go of the Past, Discover Mindfulness and Create your Perfect Future’). A book was needed. The humble book is a centuries-old technology but still has incredible power. Books are cherished and seldom thrown away. They are limited, however.

We had some pretty specific goals when creating our first book, and many of these goals extended beyond the boundaries of the 238 pages within. If you’re interested in finding out more then head across to the book page and begin your journey.
