The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

Rediscovering Our Truer Nature.

 

My classes and workshops offer experiential explorations in Sensory Awareness*, a long respected form of body/mind re-education, that helps restore our capacity for fresher perception, deeper connection and freer natural functioning.

My work focuses on reviving our fuller somatic intelligence and human potential. Through the meditative like approach of Sensory Awareness students are guided in simple and safe explorations in sensory perception sometimes combined with mindful movement and personal confidential writing.

Over many years' I've witnessed how as our sense-ability deepens, our truer nature becomes more present and we become freer from the dysfunctional habits, tensions and distorted perceptions that have limited our truer self. Many students have reported improvements in posture, attitude, stress management and overall wellbeing.

This trying time of great stress and uncertainty tests our resilience. Cultivating our natural potential for greater vitality and presence in body, mind and spirit can help strengthen it.

 

Becoming more fully grounded in our senses strengthens our ability to bounce back from adversity. Experiencing life more directly in the here-and-now we become reconnected with the deeper strength, vitality and wisdom of the organism that we are. Waking up more and more in this somatic way helps our mind gain more plasticity as the doors of our perception open wider and 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 in the here-and-now helps free us from the unhealthy faulty perceptions and habits that limit our potential. 

 

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.”

Times:  9:00 am -10:20 Pacific Standard Time

Virtual classes on Zoom

In these experiential classes we'll explore how Sensory Awareness, mindful movement and writing can help us more fully experience and integrate the resilient, self righting wisdom of our own natural being. 

 

These classes will provide a safe and supportive space in which to rediscover how it is when our busy mind settles down and our senses reawaken to the life around us and within us. In this way we'll strengthen our resilience as we become more fully responsive, freshly present and embodied in what we do.

 

A few writing experiments will be suggested both in class and between classes to help deepen and integrate the subconscious  dialogue between body, mind and spirit. Any such writing will be optional and need not be shared if so wished. 

Cost:  $25 per class, $100 for series

Getting Real

3/13, 4/3, 4/17, 5/1, 5/15, 2022

In these experiential Zoom classes we'll explore ways of deepening our sensory perception to help free us from old habits that limit our fuller presence, authenticity and vitality. Some use of confidential journal writing will be included to help better integrate your experience and discoveries into daily life.

 

When our senses are more awake and engaged, we perceive reality differently, sensing it and feeling it more as it actually is. With greater sensory awareness we rediscover a greater richness and meaning in ourselves as well as in life itself as we find ourselves more fully embodied and alive in the present moment.
