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.

These times of great stress and uncertainty test our resilience. Coming home to the natural here-and-now wisdom of our senses 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 somatic  study and 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 fresher and fuller embodied aliveness.

 

Through exploring deceptively simple experiments in perception, often involving common activities, we focus on quieting the mind while attending more consciously to what we actually sensing in the present moment. 

In this way we gradually come to reawaken and renew the rich and multifaceted realm of our sensory perception and physicality, more deeply experiencing the dynamics of breath, movement, posture, gravity, body image, vitality and much, much more.

How awake are you? What is it to be more fully awake and present? In these classes guided explorations in Sensory Awareness, mindful movement and journal writing will be offered to help develop and deepen the self righting wisdom of your own senses. 

 

These experiential classes help you rediscover how it is when the busy mind settles down and your senses reawaken to the life around you and within you. In this meditative like approach we'll strengthen our resilience as we experience becoming more balanced, freshly present and fully grounded in the now.

 

A few journaling experiments will be offered to help deepen and integrate the subconscious inner dialogue between body, mind and spirit. Any such writing will be optional and need not be shared if so wished. 

Cost:  $25 per drop in class, $80 for series.

When we're more fully oriented in our senses our truer self loosens up, unfolds and flowers. As this happens we begin to live more from the core of our natural authenticity, transcending the dualism of mind and body, and returning home to the spirit and intelligence of the organism that we are.

 

As we come home to the natural world around us and within us we become more fully resilient and embodied as a living part of nature.

The very basis of the work is that everything we do can come always anew… always sensitively anew, to be discovered and realized. Discoveries can happen anywhere. It doesn’t make any difference what you do. The question is not what you do, but how you do it.”
