Your responsibility to sense the rareness and value of your own life.


The more you sense the rareness and value of your own life, the more you realize that how you use it, how you manifest it, is all your responsibility. We face such a big task, so naturally we sit down for a while.


This book captures the essence of Charlotte Selver’s practice of SensoryAwareness like no other publication. It is an invitation to experience lifefirsthand again, as we did when we were children. In a culture where we havegrown accustomed to accumulating knowledge from teachers and experts, it israre to find a book that actually invites us to trust our own senses again. Itis the authors’ intent to give back to the reader authority over his or herown experience and learning processes. Much of the book focuses on reviving the senses in order to open the mind andbody to direct learning. The book imitates an actual Sensory Awareness class,involving the reader as a student, guiding him or her along a journey with andthrough the senses to a way of living that is in accordance with the naturalfunctioning of the human organism in its environment. The range of explorations include a renewed connection to the support of theearth as a foundation for trust; the central role of gravity for our healthand for finding orientation in life; a study of breathing that promotes healthand vitality; and connecting and interacting with other people. A handbook toa more genuine and connected way of living, the work is also a beautifullycrafted account of Sensory Awareness, showing these profound teachers at workwith their students and with the reader.
