What Happens in a Sensory Awareness Workshop?
In Sensory Awareness classes, we work with the simplest of activities, like scientists or explorers journeying through unknown territory eager to discover what they find. There is no map or prescribed routine. Each class is different and unfolds in its own unique way. Classes last two to four hours and consist of “experiments”… activities offered by the leader with guided questions to help students explore their own experiences. There are also times in which people can share what they have discovered, and people learn from each other.

The way we meet what arises in these simple activities reveals the way we meet what arises in all parts of our lives.

As we slow down and connect with our sensations, we learn to understand why Charlotte said so often: “Every moment is a moment.” We arrive in each moment to the truth of that moment. It is always new and fresh with possibility…and the next moment brings its own truth and new possibility. We don’t ever have to be trapped or stagnant. When we are attentive, we never arrive in a static place. We are always “on the way”...
