‘A day of exploration of the Senses and Perceptions; our pathways between our inner and outer worlds.

To perceive is a receptive act; we may accept, reject, or modify the stimulus and how we then use that information is part of the act of perceiving. Our decision make processes are conditioned by our past experiences, by the present situation, and our desires or expectations that are formed by these factors; we learn to bond to or defend against the environment and the more we experience the wider the realm of learning and so choice.’

A day of exploration of the Senses and Perceptions; our pathways between our inner and outer worlds.
Our perceptive senses determine how we perceive, act and react, in the world. Our senses begin as potential and develop in response to stimulation and experience.
The tactile and kinaesthetic senses are the primary senses; the foundation to being in the world. Touch and movement are the potential found in every cell throughout the body. Through the relationship of touch and movement we can attend to the whole body schema.
The senses of vision, hearing, taste and smell are located in the head. It is through our senses that we receive information from our internal environment (ourselves) and the external environment (others and the world).

To perceive is a receptive act; we may accept, reject, or modify the stimulus and how we then use that information is part of the act of perceiving. Our decision make processes are conditioned by our past experiences, by the present situation, and our desires or expectations that are formed by these factors; we learn to bond to or defend against the environment and the more we experience the wider the realm of learning and so choice.

By exploring the senses we will become more attuned to the process of choice at a preverbal instinctive and reflexive level as well as a more considered response. Our potential to express the information received through our sensory pathways can support the creative process, in the way that it influences and inspires the verbal and cognitive process.
