Join us for an in person workshop hosted by the Sensory Awareness Foundation in Berkeley, California, USA on March 25th and 26th, 2023.

Reclaiming Vitality, Presence & Connection
With Richard Lowe, Misty Hannah, Stefan Laeng, Sara Bragin


Are you still feeling the impact of the pandemic? Outwardly, things may seem to have returned to how we lived before. However, in subtle and not so subtle ways, are we still keeping to ourselves or holding in ways that we don’t need to?

This workshop is an opportunity to reclaim what may have been lost: a sense of vitality, presence and connection.
Sensory Awareness focuses on the cultivation of an ever deepening awareness of our sensory experience as a gateway into ourselves and simultaneously into deeper connection with others and the world around us. This depth of connection, with which we are born but may have lost along the way, anchors us in a more responsive and compassionate way of being.
Sensory Awareness is a movement-based mindfulness practice. Everyday gestures rather than exercises, playful explorations, quiet attentiveness rather than effort, take us to places of renewed engagement with an ever-evolving world.
