The Presence Point, currently pending B Corp status, guides companies, organizations and communities in establishing a strong contemplative foundation so that the leaders can deliver on their mission. We are gearing up to expand globally...But how did we get here?

Founder Sarah Lipton is a contemplative systems strategist and community engagement expert. For over twenty years, she has worked with thousands of leaders as they navigate the challenges of leadership.

Sarah’s training stems from her history of leadership coupled with a deep contemplative journey that focuses on strengthening and empowering one’s innate confidence in order to take one’s seat in a role of leadership. C
onsolidating her training and experience into the role of leadership mentor, Sarah works primarily with organizations who wish to empower their leaders from the inside-out. She does this by applying skills of deep listening, seeing patterns, recognizing the limitlessness of possibility, and creating curriculums that guide her clients on a journey through which they can see for themselves what transformational choices to pursue.

Sarah's passion for leadership mentoring stems from a long history of being drawn to leaders and leadership roles. In her early years, Sarah was an orchestral tuba player. The role of the tuba is to hold the foundation of the orchestra, supporting the lead players by grounding the harmonies and resonance. Over the last twenty years, Sarah has continued that trajectory by becoming a Shambhala Buddhist Minister and holding leadership and teaching roles in the international Shambhala organization, learning the intricacies of how to lead and how to support other leaders to embody their roles; not to mention launching two successful businesses.
