Essential Self Technologies connect us with our essential nature, our “essence” through the sensing and feeling self.  Once connected to our essence, we are also more connected to each other.  These technologies are often passive, ambient, and non-invasive.  They involve the use of light, vibration, pulse, sound, music, temperature, and weight, to support us in discovering and sustaining flow-like states and to contribute to a sense of embodiment.  While quantified self technologies offer value by contributing to awareness (of steps, pulse ox, HRV, etc), Essential Self Technologies support us in tapping into the wisdom of the body.
