Come to your senses:
Take in the world around you for a moment using your senses of seeing, hearing and smelling. Now imagine how you would learn about your world if you were missing even one of these senses. And, without them, how would you communicate your needs? How would you navigate and move through the world?
We learned to use our senses—our teleceptors—as babies, and continue to refine and integrate them throughout our lives.
Use Your Head!
There is a whole lot of world out there we cannot touch. These three senses, located in your head, help to navigate the world beyond our reach. They tell us where we are in space, what is around us, help us balance and avoid obstacles (and so much more).
The Nose Knows.
Smell gives cues as to safety or danger as well as helping with sound production for communication. It is also a key to taste, and can be a source of pleasure and comfort.
Keep Your Eyes on the Prize.
Eyes inform us about what is beyond our grasp and directs our grasp to what we wish to hold. They help orient us, and help us balance and navigate gracefully through the world.
Ears also help to orient locate us in space. They inform us of danger, are a key to balance and sense of rhythm in movement. Ask yourself, “Without hearing, how would I learn to speak?”
Alice Friedman and Gisele St. Hilaire will help us explore, refine, and integrate these amazing abilities.
