PASSPORT OF THE SENSES
The purpose of the Passport of the Senses is to enable each person to know themselves better by becoming aware of their own senses.
Pick up your pen and remember the good things in life…
The purpose of the Passport of the Senses is to enable each person to know themselves better by becoming aware of their own senses. Being attentive to the visible world, to sounds, to perfumes, to flavours, to textures and generally to the things around us and the resonance that all of this can have within us, enables us to hone our sensibility and to strengthen our relationship with the world around us.
The Passport of the Senses invites us, at any age, to keep track of the happy moments of our lives by noting and describing the things we enjoy, those things which stimulate our desires and motivate our vital forces. In the case of illness, notably in illness which touches the memory, this can become a precious source of information to enrich and orientate our communication with the people around us.
