Sensory Awareness with Charlotte Selver 

Recording and Transcript

Monhegan Island, August 13, 2001

“Let us give a little time just to feel how the air comes and goes when we don’t direct it.  When we let it have its own way.  . . .  Like the beating of the heart, we don’t direct it.  It has its own way to be.  . . .  And everything which it wants, permitting when it wants to be small, let it be small. … When the exhalation wants to become deeper, let it become deeper.  Don’t direct it.  Permit it.  . . .  Or faster.  Or slower.  . . .  What comes, comes. … And in order to become more quiet yet and more permissive, would you gently go with your hands around your eyes and forehead. … to quieten the inner head.  . . .  To create more peace inside.  …  Giving up thinking.”

This is a recording of an actual Sensory Awareness class, not a lecture. We suggest that you take the time to follow Charlotte’s guidance rather than just listening to the recording. We include a transcript because Charlotte is sometimes hard to understand for people who didn’t know her.
