I did the Making Sense of your Senses course because after talking to Ash about it. She’d done the course a few months before and I got me really excited about attending. I didn’t really know exactly what it was, like I’d made some guesses, but I absolutely loved it!
It was a lot of information but also really interactive – working with people, that kind of thing – it was social, lots of group discussion where people learn stuff about themselves by reflecting together with other people.
My favourite bit of the course was realising I wasn’t crazy – like living in share houses and things – just because I have a different way of going about things. Like, I’m not a person that can be quiet all the time whereas a lot of people seem quite content with that.
I’m also a lot more understanding of other people, like what works for them.
The topics are so relatable – you’re discovering something you kind of have an intuition about, but are getting clarification on. Like, you hear about it and you think, “I think I know about that” and then you attend, and it’s like, “Whoa, there’s so much more to that!”
Personally, the way that I’ve benefited from, ‘Making sense of your senses’ was learning about what works for me in terms of a morning routine, and working with my own sensory profile around that, and choosing environments – even in terms of going out – based on what works for me and what doesn’t. It’s also given me the ability to say no to people for different reasons and say, “Nah, that’s just not me” and having an understanding of why that is.
I’d say just come along & see if you connect with it!
