What is it to be more fully present?
A practice for reawakening our original nature.
Through our senses we can rediscover a richer and more authentic way of being.
Sensory Awareness is a study and practice that helps us reawaken our capacity to be more mindfully in the here-and-now. That is, to more fully experience, respond to and embody the actual somatic realities of life: gravity, breathing, balance, energy, touch, movement, and so on.
This work involves guided sensory explorations in which our usual habitual thoughts and tensions melt into the background as we become more wholeheartedly engaged and connected with what is now. With continued practice we can become more truly alive and reclaim greater presence and natural ease in everything that we do.
This work offers a valuable enhancement to meditation, massage, psychotherapy, yoga, stress reduction, creative expression … as well as 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
