ENGAGING THE SENSES FOUNDATION represents the ongoing dedication of four generations of women to celebrating, promoting, and strengthening the power of the arts to move human beings from habitual, everyday reality into a state of focused attention. We believe that art in its highest forms seeds in individuals and groups an awareness that can help ensure the healing of our vital, fragile, beautiful world. We understand that by supporting artists in their boldest and most courageous visions, we are assisting humanity to thrive. Through the creation of programs and events that illuminate the intersection of art and compassion, we honor the indivisibility of the human spirit and nature, and attend to the nurturing of both.
