Sensory Awareness focuses on the cultivation of an ever-deepening awareness of our sensory experience as a gateway into ourselves and into deeper connection with others and the world around us.
Moment by moment, as we go through our lives, we are called to respond to changes. We are always in a dynamic relationship with the world, even on subtle organic levels. Well-being calls for presence and willingness to adapt. Discord sets in when we try to resist change and hold on to what we believe to be ours.
Through Sensory Awareness, we rediscover the natural tendencies of life to interact and to find balance. We do so by reconnecting with the beauty of activities as ordinary as sitting and walking and with playful movement explorations. At times we very quietly attend to the world within, as to the subtleties of breathing, at other times we play and run and jump and interact with the world around us, allowing natural responses rather than imposing our will onto the world.
