Remembering Seymour Carter: July 27, 1936 – November 1, 2012

Seymour Carter, long-time Sensory Awareness leader, acting president of the Sensory Awareness Leaders Guild, and so much more, died suddenly in Chernovcy, Ukraine. He was on a teaching tour in Europe.

Was there anyone who didn't know him or know of him?
Was there any place he walked where people were not somehow changed?
He has joined the ether and I suspect he isn't done with us or with life.
Natalie Ednie, Sensory Awareness leader, Sandpoint ID

 

I had many conversations with Seymour about his work, some recorded, most not. Here is an excerpt from the February 11, 2008 interview in which he talks about meeting Charlotte Selver.
