Becoming attentive to your senses

We generally experience our environment with more than one sense at the time. While it is useful to focus on individual senses and understand how each sense frames our access to the world, it is also important to think about how senses interact. Which senses do you notice most? Are some sensory features so dominant that they overpower others? How do you think you might be conditioned by upbringing, education, or profession to pay more attention to some senses than to others? Do your perceptions change once you filter out a particular sense? Are you more attentive to it afterwards when focussing on all the senses again? We suggest to alternate focusing on the interaction of the senses with zooming in on a particular senses.
