Thriving in Uncertainty: A Workshop in Sensory Awareness


Lee Lesser


Life is uncertain. As much as we try to create stability and predictability, each moment brings its own surprise and its own unique offering. The more we can show up for each moment of our life just as it is, the more we can thrive in the midst of uncertainty. Our sensations are wonderful allies in this process. As we pay atten- tion to our sensory experience, the more con- nected we become to what is actually happen- ing. Charlotte Selver, the founder of Sensory Awareness in the United States, used to say, “Every moment is a moment. Every moment makes a certain request of us. The question is how we answer it.”


This workshop focuses on tools that help us to be present, that are antidotes to the busyness in our heads. So much energy is dispersed and lost as we fight against what scares us, or what is uncomfortable. In this workshop, we have a lab- oratory to explore and practice, and to apply these tools. By simplifying our activities we can connect with our sensations. This experiencing reveals our habits and the possibility that can unfold when we get out of our own way and find freedom in the midst of any experience.
