What is it to be more fully and freshly alive? Our sensory perception can help us reawaken and rediscover our more authentic and more embodied self.
Working with simple down-to-earth experiments in everyday living we’ll explore ways to free up the fuller functioning of breathing, movement, balance, energy, connection, playfulness and more.
Simply slowing down enough to be more in the moment and allow your deeper self to unfold can be life changing. But without practice it can be hard to do.
This non-dogmatic and self-empowering study can do much to help nurture your fuller potential. Many find this practice to be a valuable enrichment to meditation, yoga, psychotherapy, creative expression, as well as to life itself.
Ft. Mason itself provides an enriching environment in which to experience this work. With its beautiful location right on the bay, farmers’ market, variety of creative offerings, events and other attractions there is much to savor.

Quotes from people who have taken classes with Richard Lowe:
“Richard has found a useful and unique way to meld the meditative approach of Sensory Awareness and psychotherapy. His work is unifying for the student and guides us ever so gently to our inner treasures, helping us release mind/body baggage so that we may live more freely. I feel lucky to have him as a teacher.”
“Richard brings compassion, heart, spontaneity, skill and sensitivity to his leading of Sensory Awareness. In his classes he creates a safe container in which you learn to better know yourself, tap into your own creativity, and become more fully grounded in the present.”
