From the angle of our senses, we approach the top five common challenges in a team environment: 1) disrespect, 2) unequal workload, 3) being unheard, 4) lack of connection/communication, and 5) lack of motivation.
The underlying concept of this approach is to bring into balance the left and right brain hemispheres as we connect to those around us to collaborate, to build something together, to be an integral part of a bigger entity to achieve a bigger goal. The left brain is the part responsible for feelings and emotions, and it’s where you access your creativity, inspiration, imagination.
Our senses function as the bridge between our inner and outer worlds. As we sit in our core and look out at the world, all our relationships depend on this bridge. We have a relationship with our money, job, people, business, home, etc.
This course is to introduce you to look inward, through your senses, to gain greater clarity on what is or is not working in your relationships.
Approaching the quality of your collaboration with your teammates, colleagues, business partners, etc., through the twelve senses is a holistic approach of improving the quality of your experience with those whom you surround yourself with, the quality of your journey, as well as the outcome of your journey.
This Course is Suitable For
This course will suit those who work with others, regardless of what role you assume in the group–leader, assistant, partner, etc.
Because this course is geared toward application in a team environment, the focus of the course material will be more on the self, and the connection between self and others. If the twelve senses are taught without focusing their application on any particular aspect of life (as they have wide application in all life aspects–money, job, health, home, relationship, etc.), then I would introduce the material in a more scholarly or theoretical approach.
I started out as an accountant in the corporate world, but branched out into the health and wellness realm due to health reasons. In addition to taking multiple courses on the science of life energy, I have the lived experience of re-orientating myself with the world by rebuilding neuropathways and relationships from my core.
If you’re curious about the practices that I learn and do, feel free to visit my blog where I sometimes document some of my learnings, insight, growth, challenges, etc.
In this course, I will be teaching an advanced version of the twelve senses originally developed by Rudolf Steiner. Specifically, I will steer your attention toward your inner landscape–the foundation that you stand upon as you orientate your core self with your outer landscape–and guide you to see and utilize the infrastructure of your bridge within you.

Before delving into the individual senses, we will look at the mechanics of the sensory organs and sensory perception, starting from their development at the embryonic stage, to explore the sensory signals the embryo picks up in the womb. Then after birth, we look at how our surroundings and childhood experiences shape our neurological pathways and limbic system.
At this point, our sensory system is already very well pruned and skewed toward certain set of stimuli.
After a basic understanding of the sensory system, we dive into the individual senses. Depending on the flow and interactions of the class, the order that we introduce the senses may change, and we may revisit some of the senses in a later session to go deeper into them.
1) Sense of Touch
2) Sense of Life
3) Sense of Self
4) Sense of Movement
5) Sense of Sight
6) Sense of Smell

8) Sense of Taste
