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.

Belonging – Being a Part and not Apart

Reflections on the Theme of the Upcoming Workshop

by Shelley Hainer, Eyal Yona , Stefan Laeng, and Ray Fowler.

New York City, Oct. 7 – 8, 2023

Every step we take is not just about getting somewhere, it’s a gesture of belonging. 

Or it could be. 

How can we rekindle the trust needed to be a part again and not feel apart? 

The movement-based mindfulness practice of Sensory Awareness explores such questions through everyday gestures, playful explorations, and quiet attentiveness.

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.
