From Isolation to Connection: Coming to Our Senses in Difficult Times

SHORT SUMMARY

Sensory Awareness is grounded in our physical presence. Reconnecting with the most basic facts of living, we discover the personal strength we need while remaining sensitive, open. Meeting our heightened uncertainties, we can open up with strength, rather than shutting down or spinning out.

Presented by Sensory Awareness Foundation

And also Presented by
Lee Klinger Lesser, Judyth Weaver, Enric Bruguera, Stefan Laeng

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Sensory Awareness is an experiential study that helps us rediscover our natural birthright: an embodied felt sense of authenticity and vitality. Sensing focuses on the cultivation of an ever-deepening awareness of our sensory experience as a gateway into ourselves and into a deeper connection with the world around us.

We don’t have to do anything special. No techniques or exercises. We are already sensing all of the time. We only have to learn to pay attention to our own experience in a way that is not common in western cultures, where we tend to be more focused on experiencing our lives from the neck up. On the other hand, this work is very accessible. People commonly report a sense of truly “coming home”: To ourselves, to each other, to everything that exists.

Sensory Awareness is grounded in our physical presence. Reconnecting with the most basic facts of living, we discover the personal strength we need while remaining sensitive, open. Meeting our heightened uncertainties, we can open up with strength, rather than shutting down or spinning out.

Fully experiencing what is beneath us, we discover the support it offers—and learn how it is to live supported every step of our way. The sense of fear diminishes. Clenched fist becomes open hand, truly able to receive, and to give. The contracted heart opens. Lived with such awareness, each moment can become a refuge from the storm.

FROM ISOLATION TO CONNECTION -- COMING TO OUR SENSES IN DIFFICULT TIMES
In the midst of this turbulent time, we can rely on the tools that Sensory Awareness is offering – embodied presence through felt explorations of everyday movements and activities.

Four certified members of the Sensory Awareness Leaders Guild are coming together to offer this retreat of 4 separate sessions...each person will lead one session which will be about one hour each. There is nothing you need to bring other than yourself and your willingness to feel more, be more, perhaps learn more about yourself.
