Rediscovering Our Truer Nature.
My classes and workshops offer experiential practice and coaching in Sensory Awareness*, a long respected form of body/mind re-education, that helps revive our capacity for fresher perception and freer natural functioning.
Our focus is on reviving our greater sensory potential and fuller embodied presence. Through a meditative like, mindfulness enhancing approach students are led in exploring simple, sometimes playful experiments in sensory perception, often combined with authentic movement and sometimes journal writing.
In my over 40 year experience I have witnessed how as students' sense-ability deepens, their truer nature reawakens as they become freer from dysfunctional habits, tensions and distorted perceptions that have limited their true potential. Many of them have reported improvements in posture, attitude, stress management and overall wellbeing.
This time of great stress and uncertainty tests our resilience. Improving the quality our sensory perception can help.
Being more fully grounded in our senses strengthens our ability to bounce back from adversity. As we experience life more directly in the here-and-now we become reconnected with the deeper strength and wisdom of the organism that we are. As we wake up more in this way we become better able to cope with both the world around us as well as the life within us, feeling more freshly alive and fully embodied as a living part of all that is.
For over 60 years the long respected somatic practice of Sensory Awareness* has helped thousands of students worldwide rediscover a fuller embodied sense of authenticity and natural ease.
* What is Sensory Awareness?
The long respected somatic practice of Sensory Awareness helps free us from habitual ways we are limited in our perception and in our everyday functioning. Its experiential approach offers a self-empowering way to regain our fuller embodied aliveness.
Through exploring deceptively simple experiments in perception, often involving common activities, we focus on quieting the mind as we attend more consciously to what is being experienced in the present moment.
Gradually we come to reawaken and renew the rich and multifaceted realm of our sensory perception and physicality, including the dynamics of breath, movement, posture, gravity, body image, vitality and much, much more.

"Richard Lowe has found a useful and unique way to meld the meditative approach of Sensory Awareness and psychotherapy. His work is unifying for the student and guides us ever so gently to our inner treasures, helping us release mind/body baggage so that we may live more freely. I feel lucky to have him as a teacher."
“Richard brings compassion, heart, spontaneity, skill and sensitivity to his leading of Sensory Awareness. His warm, clear, strong, and open heart leads the group to connect with themselves, with each other, and with all that surrounds. In his classes he creates a safe container in which you learn to better know yourself, tap into your own creativity, and become more fully grounded in the present.”

Improving our sensory awareness helps strengthen our vitality and resilience, which can do much to lessen the debilitating physical and psychological effects of this ongoing pandemic.
In these experiential classes we'll explore how living more mindfully in our senses (our sense-ability) grounds us in becoming more present, balanced and empowered in coping with the unbalancing stress of adversity and uncertainty.
Combining experiments in Sensory Awareness, mindful movement and confidential journal writing we'll work to integrate the dynamics of awareness, inner dialogue and creativity.
Cost: $80 for series, $20 per class (Initial trial class is free.)
