Sensory Awareness Foundation



Dear Visitor,

Welcome to our website.

Sensory Awareness focuses on the cultivation of an ever deepening awareness of our sensory experience as a gateway into ourselves and simultaneously into deeper connection with others and the world around us. This depth of connection, with which we are born but may have lost along the way, anchors us in a more responsive and compassionate way of being.

I hope you will find value in what we have to offer. We look forward to seeing you in one of our workshops or classes sometime soon.

Get a Taste of Sensory Awareness / Online Every Saturday

These classes are a great opportunity to get a first impression of Sensory Awareness.

But that’s just the beginning. For many they have become a not-to-be-missed weekly chance to practice with like-minded people from all over the world.

A seasonally changing theme serves as inspiration to explore what it means to live more fully.

In-Person Workshop with
Sara Bragin, Misty Hannah, Richard Lowe, Stefan Laeng

Still reeling from the isolating impact of the pandemic? Outwardly, things may seem largely back to how we lived before but in subtle and not so subtle ways, we are still keeping to ourselves, holding in. 

This workshop is an opportunity to reclaim what may have been lost: a sense of vitality, presence and connection.
