Below you will find audio files of Sensory Awareness experiments offered by seasoned members of the Sensory Awareness Leaders’ Guild.
We hope that this free resource can support you in cultivating an inner attitude of openness to the flow of sensations as we experience ourselves and the surrounding world. Move into the totality of all of who you are; into all of the connection and responsiveness that is possible in any given moment.
March 20, 2018 – Michael Atkinson. One of the great gifts of Sensory Awareness is that we can practice it pretty much anywhere – no special props or situations required. In your own home or workplace, you’ll find a countertop or shelf that’s waist high, or nearly so – a perfect place to experiment with standing. If you’d like, clear distracting items from a part of that surface, and then play this recording, in which I offer a 16 minute exploration of standing. With any luck, you’ll find other situations to experiment with as the day unfolds. Make them up as you go along!
Nowhere to go, Nothing to do
Apr. 19, 2015 – Lee Lesser’s invitation to experiment is a 33 minute excerpt from a phone session with her Leaders Group. She begins by discussing how the question to explore with the group emerged that very morning, and then offers the experiment. Lee asks only that you take a little time to settle before beginning.

A Glass of Water
Jul 29, 2014 – Enric Bruguera’s experiment is a 33 minute segment of his SALG conference call session of April (the full recording of which can be found in the Conference Call section of this website, below). Enric asks that before clicking the play button, you be seated comfortably and have a full glass of water within reach, but not yet at hand.
Jul 29, 2014 – Francesca Khanna’s experiment, 37 minutes long, asks that you locate yourself in a familiar room full of things you know, and bring along a rubber band: any sort will do, but she’s using one of the sort that holds broccoli in the store.
Balance and Imbalance
Apr 7, 2014 – Michael Atkinson’s experiment, about 40 minutes, works with balance and imbalance in various ways. A stretch of room in which to walk a bit, and a floor on which to lie down should be all you need.
Apr 7, 2014 – Bob Smith’s experiment, about 50 minutes long, explores what appears as we reach high in a sustained way. Before clicking the play button, find two flat stones, suitable for resting atop your standing feet, and another stone that fits nicely in the hand.
