SENSRI Summer Courses
On the Nature of PerceptionSunday Evening July 30th through Friday noon August 4th; Keene Valley, NY
The focus of this one week summer course will be to deepen and strengthen our ability to experience life more consciously. Through a series of experiences, both in the natural world and with others, participants will develop and strengthen their ability to "make sense" of their surroundings and present set of circumstances. The ability to become rejuvenated, centered and focused in the natural world is commonly experienced. We will take the practices of the week into our personal life, our work and the experiences of our everyday lives.
The daily rhythm will consist of morning presentations and experiential exercises in the natural world. The afternoon will consist of short excursions to strong natural environments where we will practice some of the techniques we learn in the mornings and then allow for time for discussion. There will also be a couple of hours each day for general relaxation and an outbreath from the rest of the days experiences.
Course Fee: $575 before April 15th, $675 after April 15th.
