Dear Friends of Sensory Awareness,

In a recent workshop in Ulm, Germany, a participant called Sensory Awareness Friedensarbeit, peace-work.
In another workshop near Bonn someone said it’s the foundation of everything.
Asked what Sensory Awareness is about, I often simply say connection.

We live in a fractured world. We have conflicts within ourselves and between ourselves and others. Through the practice of Sensory Awareness, we can work toward healing those fractures and cultivate a culture of responsive collaboration, within and without.

The purpose of the Sensory Awareness Foundation is to make this practice known and available. We particularly want to make it available to a younger generation of people in need of a foundation to move on from conflict to collaboration.

Please join the Foundation in its work by becoming a member or renewing your membership and including a generous donation. Read on below to learn more about our plans for the coming year and some gifts we’d like to share with you.

Thank you.

Moving into the World. Denise Gabriel’s class in New York City.

 

In 2018, with your help

  • We organized 3 major Workshops at: 
    Vallombrosa Center in Menlo Park, CA,
    Pearl Studios in New York City,
    Fraueninsel im Chiemsee, Germany.
  • We offered the Sensing Sundays phone class series 3 times, for a total of 18 classes.
    This remains a popular program, bringing the practice right into your home.
  • We gave away scholarships at all of our events, making it possible for veterans, students, and people with low income to attend.
  • We gave financial support to 3 Sensory Awareness Leaders in Mexico to offer affordable workshops for low-income populations.

 

 For 2019, we are planning

  • A West Coast workshop at Shambhala Center in Berkeley, CA, on April 13 – 14.
  • An East Coast workshop in New York City, on October 5 – 6.
    Both will be non-residential weekends, open to all generations, and specifically designed to be affordable and attractive for new students and younger people. 
  • We are working toward organizing more SAF sponsored workshops in other cities.
  • We continue working toward a broader community base by reaching out to younger people through channels they prefer, like social media and a newly designed, device-friendly website. 
  • We will again be able to give scholarships to students, veterans, and others who will be grateful for your support.
