Beneath the clutter of contemporary life is the reliable ground of presence
on which to stand and move with sensitivity and intuitive intelligence.

Sensory Awareness is a remarkably open practice, a straightforward approach to reconnect with the living moment. Everyday movements rather than exercises, playful explorations, quiet attentiveness rather than effort, take us to a place of renewed engagement with an ever-evolving world, and a deepening sense of presence for what moves within and around us. Join us in exploring this path of renewal and discovery.

Chester Howard lives life with curiosity and advocates for others to do the same. He has been in private practice in Pasadena, California, since 1985 and is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist, a Sensory Awareness leader, and a certified practitioner/teacher of Integrative Body Psychotherapy. Chester also uses street smarts and the influences of race and culture on our senses with individuals and communities. Since 1995, Sensory Awareness has been foundational to his practice and life. It is a portal to our heart, essence, being, and to experiencing renewed balance and aliveness.

Helga Hoenen has been working at universities of Tübingen and Heidelberg for many years in the departments of physical education, teaching mainly dance, skiing and outdoor activities. She started to study with Charlotte Selver in 1983, is a Sensory Awareness leader since 1990, a Feldenkrais practitioner since 1997 and an Embodied Life Teacher since 2011. Her way of teaching is influenced by Buddhist meditation practice and focuses on sensing life in the present moment and supporting the life giving forces, our “birthright” as Charlotte used to say.
