The teachings of Charlotte Selver, the founder in the U.S. of Sensory Awareness, are preserved almost exclusively as audio tapes of her many classes. In the late 1970s she entrusted William C. Littlewood with the monumental task of turning those tapes into a book of her classroom interactions. It is her “voice” that speaks to the reader from these pages.
William C. Littlewood studied for years with Charlotte Selver and served as editor of the Bulletin of the Sensory Awareness Foundation. For shepherding to completion the first book about Sensory Awareness, he received the highest praise and deepest gratitude from its author, Charles Brooks, “for tempering the alloy from which this instrument was forged.”
Mary Alice Roche, a long-time student of Charlotte Selver, writes extensively on Sensory Awareness and other topics. She helped found the Sensory Awareness Foundation in 1971, became its first archivist, and edited most of its Bulletins.
