What is it to be more fully present?
A practice for reawakening our original nature.
It’s through our senses that we experience life, and it is through our senses that we can reawaken to a fuller and more authentic way of being.
Sensory Awareness helps us restore our capacity to be more mindfully in the here-and-now. That is, to more wholeheartedly experience and respond to the living and unfolding realities of life: gravity, breathing, balance, energy, touch, movement, and so on.
Through guided explorations involving deceptively simple non-verbal experiments, habitual thoughts and tensions melt into the background as we become more mindfully engaged and embodied in what is happening now. With such practice we can become more fully alive and reclaim greater authenticity and natural ease in everything that we do.
Many find that this study provides a valuable enhancement to stress reduction, meditation, massage, psychotherapy, yoga, creative expression, …and particularly to life itself.
Originally developed in Europe and later brought to the U.S. and further developed by Charlotte Selver, the legacy of this work lives on through the educational materials and projects of the Sensory Awareness Foundation and through the many approved teachers of the Sensory Awareness Leaders’ Guild worldwide.

“Sensing is getting more in touch with oneself, with others, and with the world.
We are offering to you a work which, in its very character, somehow embraces our possibility of getting in touch with whatever we do or whomever we meet – and going as deeply as possible into this coming-in-contact-with-what–we-do.”
— Charlotte Selver, Waking Up
