The awareness of the senses
To know is to experience. The senses are like an interface between us and the world and therefore instruments of knowledge. However, there is a significant imbalance between the sense of sight at the expense of the senses of hearing, taste, smell and touch. Returning equal dignity and attention to the 5 senses opens up new ways to gain experience and, therefore, knowledge.
Make a commentary on the awakening of the senses. Guided experiences relating to the 5 senses and the relative specificity of ‘knowing’.
Be able to revitalise their perceptual system and have a greater sensory sharpness.
